Industrial eye pendant

IMG_9839m

I had a problem categorizing this pendant. It’s slightly steampunkish but does not contain any watch parts, just wire, beads and a lot of chains. I settled for “industrial” in the end, as this term is somewhat wider than steampunk. It’s still in the Steampunk section of my shop, because Etsy doesn’t allow more categories than I already have. I used a tiny dichroic glass cab from For The People glued onto a brass connector as …

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.

Wire wrapped winter bracelet

I have to admit, the wire wrapping in this one took an awful lot of time. I used three dichroic glass cabs from For The People shop (purple and ice pink/white) and lampwork beads from Dancing Frog Jewelry. Purples, lilacs and whites. Enjoy. Bracelet available in my Etsy shop.

Glass necklaces

The central wire wrapped pieces of these necklaces have been ready for quite a while, but I had to decide which beads to use for the rest of the necklace and had to collect enough of them. I was trying to go for the casual asymmetric look. Autumn colours available here. Pink and purple colours available here.  

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 …
