Gothic necklace

I really wanted to use all these small beads that normally I don’t, instead of getting rid of them, but I didn’t want to make anything plain, but rather exciting. I came up with this. The necklace part is crocheted with wire and random selection of purple glass beads, and the central piece is wire wrapped, like all the rest of my pendants (just different shape). The clasp is in the front. Available on Etsy.

Some new heart pendants

I got swamped with some custom orders and some other unrelated stuff, but I’ve managed to make something for my shop as well. I know people have been inquiring for my heart pendants, so I made four goth ones. As you can see, I’ve used some new glass/wire combinations. Available on Etsy.

Long black agate pendant

I’ve made this pendant a while ago, I have no idea why I haven’t posted it yet. It’s a beautiful black agate bead with translucent and brown spots. I used two wires: gunmetal and silver plated to make the pendant even more unusual. It’s quite traditional in comparison to my other creations, though. No crazy colours and forms, just a floral inspired wrapping in quiet tones. Available on Etsy.

Purple agate oval pendant

Normally I don’t like “wavy” beads, but I misunderstood the information in the store and ordered them, because I thought they were straight. No harm, though, as they’re high quality and have a nice colour. It’s hard to match them with anything, so I thought it would be best to go with neutral beads this time: grey labradorite and white howlite. I quite like how it came out. Available on Etsy.

Purple agate gothic pendant

Another beautiful deep purple bead. At first I wanted to make this pendant symmetrical, but then I decided to add a non-symmetrical centre, because the one I was coming up with was boring. I used some opalite and black agate beads for decoration. Also, I’m really a fan of a chain, especially double chain dangling from anything wearable. Available on Etsy.  

Long gothic black & grey pendant

I’ve been wondering for a long time what to do with this bead. It’s plain, without any banding, just with two or three ridiculous yellowish spots on its sides. I decided to do a cage that conceals the spots, as I thought they were just pointless. I’ve just recently bought grey wire, which is called “smoke”, while the warm grey one that I’m using for steampunk is called “gunmetal”, which is somewhat confusing. Anyway, grey …

Labradorite, opalite and dyed agate – two pendants

After my opalite and garnet pendant was successful (although it was supposed to be a bracelet in the beginning), I’ve decided to use this pattern further and try different wire and stone combinations with it. I was only limited by the kind of headpins I had, as they only come in a limited range of colours. These are my favourite ones so far: opalite + blue agate + labradorite, and purple agate + opalite + …

Red and black pendant in negative

Normally I often make pendants with red bead and black wire. They are popular, and I’m not surprised, as this is also one of my favourite color combos to wear. But I thought I should make something more unusual, like reversing the colours. I bought some new wire and decided it’s time to experiment. I’m not  unhappy with the result, but I think an additional piece of red chain would be fantastic. The beads are …
