Ancient Forest pendant

It took me several attempts to actually photograph this pendant properly and the beauty of the stone still doesn’t show on a single photo. Hence there’s three. It was tricky to wrap it to have all the freeform wire detail and not to obscure the stone too much at the same time, but I managed (although it took a lot of time). Available in my Etsy shop. Enjoy!   

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.

I used a tiny dichroic glass cab from For The People glued onto a brass connector as …

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 …
