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 …

Lampwork glass earrings

Remember the big box of unfinished earrings I blogged about a few days ago? Well, some of them are finished.  My friend says that there’s no point in wearing small earrings because nobody can see them anyway. The ones I make are at least 7 cm long, and usually even longer. This is the first batch, and each pair is different. Available in the earrings section of my shop.

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.

Steampunk earrings batch

I’m having another beading attack earrings phase. These earrings are quite simple in construction, but include handmade dichroic glass beads and unusual brass-plated elements. I tried to make each pair look slightly different. More are to come when I get more supplies. Available in my Etsy shop. And this box contains over 1kg of unfinished lampwork glass earrings, that are waiting for me to have enough energy/wire scraps to make some matching earhooks.

Heart pendants – 2012 3rd batch

For some reason most of the steampunk ones are green this time… I think I need to go shopping for supplies, most of the hearts I have left are green at the moment. Also, some of them have the new key charms I’ve recently got and will be using from now on until further notice (they’re bigger but I like them better than the previous ones). The pendants are available in my Etsy shop, in …

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.

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. …
