Some pendants I’ve made recently.
One of my usual steampunk pendants. I have abandoned them a bit recently, although they are quite popular and I like making them. I must get back to making them more regularly. Available here.
A heart pendant but different than what I usually make. It’s based on a round bead. I’m not sure how that happened, I guess I’m so much used to making heart shaped things, that my hands went on auto pilot here… Available here.
Sometimes I set aside some beads that match together and keep them for later in case I come across more matching beads or just something that goes with them enough for me to go “wow” and feel that using those beads in a different combination wouldn’t produce something good enough. That was the case with caramel lampwork beads, with navy blue, clear or brown bumpy spots. When I gathered all my matching supplies it turned out I had enough of them to actually make two bracelets. Notice the wire wrapped beads with navy blue seed beads on them :)
Pendants like these were one of the first I designed. 2cm bead and relatively simple wrapping (in comparison to my other designs). I haven’t been making them in a while and everybody seemed to like them, so I figured I’d make a batch. These are green and pinkish brown (you might call them steampink, actually). Available in my shop.
I’ve got lots of turquoise beads, so most of the bracelets I’ve recently made includes some. It’s a great stone to work with, because there are very few other stones that don’t go with it. Most green, red, blue, brown and yellow do anyway. I’m experimenting with wire wrapping beads to use them as a focal piece. Also, trying to include some handmade hammered clasps and other elements every now and then.
The bracelets are available in my Etsy shop.
Remember the beads from my previous post? I decided to use them in a bracelet after all. I had some beautiful raw amber beads and various matching jasper and turquoise pieces and I like this colour combination.
The second one took me a major part of a day, because I had an idea, which proved to be poor, then I had to redesign the whole piece, make another wire wrapped element and attach it. What I used was dichroic glass cabs, artisan lampwork glass beads and various metal elements.
