A batch of steampunk pendants

Here’s a batch of some new steampunk pendants – the smallest ones. Theoretically they come in pretty much any colour, but really mostly I use what I already have in my beads drawer and what’s available. I got lots of brown and purple ones this time. Available in my Etsy shop in the Steampunk section.

Agate pendants

Agate is one of my favourite minerals. The natural one is usually brown and grey, although there are more variations, but it can also be dyed in various colours, which I learned to appreciate over time, especially when the dye job looks well. The first one is one of the natural brown slices I brought over from Poland last year. I used malachite beads to compliment it. The other one is a dyed bead, and …

Picasso jasper pendants

My favourite variety of jasper is “picasso jasper”, that earned its name due to picture-like markings. I swear sometimes the beads I get look like landscape or abstract paintings. And beautiful too. As you can see I’m still fond of the spiky and asymmetric style when it comes to semi-precious stone pendants. Green pendant with amazonite and mookaite beads; available in my Etsy shop   Brown and green pendant with turquoise and fluorite; also available …

Dichroic glass pendants.

I’ve been working on this new kind of pendant, gothic style but without chains or other dangling bits. I used dichroic glass cabs as a base, I’ve got about a whole drawer of them in various colours. These pendants are quite big, but next time I will try to find out how small a cab can I use in such a creation. Available in the gothic / fantasy section of my shop.

Various pendants

Some pendants I’ve made recently. I like to experiment a bit, so in these two I used Vintaj Patina to decorate the brass base and a dragon charm. Available in my Etsy shop: dragon pendant, green pendant 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 …

Twin bracelets

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 …

Basic steampunk pendants

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.

Bracelets with turquoise

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 …

Chunky bracelets

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. Available in my Etsy shop. 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 …
