Turquoise & jasper pendant

Would you believe I spent approximately the same amount of time attaching the tiny beads as doing the actual wire wrapping? The beads are: various type of turquoise (stabilized mostly), lapis lazuli, various kinds of jasper, copper and tiger’s eye. I like how the main stone seems framed in the wire. Available on Etsy.

Lampwork bead bracelets

I’ve used most of the bead pairs for earrings and I’m left with lots of beads that don’t exactly qualify for earrings (same colour but different size, same size but different pattern etc), so I decided to use them for beaded bracelets and made three so far. I’m wondering if I’ll be able to use up all my stash this way. Bracelets are available in my Etsy shop.

Shamrocks

I was a little bit late with the shamrock production this year, but there’s still some time until St. Paddy’s day. I tried different wire and bead combinations this time. Available in my Etsy shop: warm green shamrock, light green shamrock, green wire shamrock and blue shamrock.

More pendants with dichroic glass

I’m still experimenting with the right shape for my pendants, also looking for beads that go with the dichroic glass cabs, which is not easy, because they usually change colours depending on from which angle you look at them. Metallic coated fire polished glass seems to work best. The pendants are available in my shop: green, purple, blue and brown (the green one is also based on a gold plated watch piece – nicer colour!)

Pocket watch steampunk pendants with artistic glass cabs

I’ve had a stash of fused and dichroic glass cabochons that were too small to use for wire wrapping and had no idea what to do with them. But recently I found out I could glue them onto stuff, for example onto the round flat spots in some pocket watch pieces, like I used to do with cameo cabs. I think dichroic glass is perfect for steampunk and I’ve been working on these pendants especially …

Artistic glass steampunk pendants

With these pendants it usually takes more time to make them. They’re high end stuff in what I make and I want them to be really perfect, so I take the time to find the right watch parts, right beads to decorate them, and the wrapping itself lasts longer. The beautiful glass cabs come from Mollie Barrow at Spleodar Glass. Two of them are emerald green, although I can’t decide what colour that is exactly. …

Test tube pendants

“Test tube pendants” is what Mollie Barrow named them. Only the first one is based on a round cab (and also quite big). Mollie is the person who makes all these beautiful glass cabs. Each one is different, so these pendants are even more unique than my other stuff (which is unique but sometimes on a different level). You can see Mollie’s other work on her facebook page. My pendants are available on Etsy in …
