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 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 parrot

You really don’t want to know how much time it took to complete it. A pendant like this has to be wrapped around at least twice, so it doesn’t bend, and needs extra wire in a few spots to give it durability. I used lots of tiny glass beads to decorate it. It was fun to make, but took lots and lots of work. Available on Etsy.

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 …

Cthulhu brooches/pins

I’ve had this idea for a while, especially since people have been asking about Cthulhu brooches, I just had to find a way to attach a pendant to a pin. Kilt pins came to the rescue, as they’re equipped with loops. I didn’t know what else to attach to the loops (except for the chain), so I made a few versions with and without beads. Feedback will be appreciated. All pins are available in the …

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.

Tooth shaped pendants

I don’t make steampunk stuff all the time, sometimes I need a break from it, that’s why I keep a stash of pretty semi precious stones in my desk, in case I get good ideas. These pendants are relatively simple, made from a rather small piece of wire, and the common thing about them is the bead shape and a decorative bead on the top. The black agate one is double sided. All available in …

More pendants with dichroic glass

I’m still experimenting with the right shape for my pendants, also looking for beads that go with the dichroic glass cabs, which is not easy, because they usually change colours depending on from which angle you look at them. Metallic coated fire polished glass seems to work best. The pendants are available in my shop: green, purple, blue and brown (the green one is also based on a gold plated watch piece – nicer colour!)
