New earrings

I rarely make wire wrapped earrings, because my pendants are much more popular. Perhaps because the earrings are more demanding, as they’re generally expected to come in pairs and it’s difficult for me to repeat a pattern. They also have to be light and are generally more demanding, so whenever I make them, I try to keep them relatively simple. I myself, though, prefer to wear earrings every day. I’ve listed these two pairs just …

Some new heart pendants

I got swamped with some custom orders and some other unrelated stuff, but I’ve managed to make something for my shop as well. I know people have been inquiring for my heart pendants, so I made four goth ones. As you can see, I’ve used some new glass/wire combinations. Available on Etsy.

Geode pendant

Finally I figured out what to do with the unusual geode halves. I didn’t know how to wrap them until I’ve got grey wire, which matches most of them perfectly. I really like how it came out. Not for sale, at least not until I make more of them (I have too keep this one in case I forget how to do the wrapping).

Purple agate oval pendant

Normally I don’t like “wavy” beads, but I misunderstood the information in the store and ordered them, because I thought they were straight. No harm, though, as they’re high quality and have a nice colour. It’s hard to match them with anything, so I thought it would be best to go with neutral beads this time: grey labradorite and white howlite. I quite like how it came out. Available on Etsy.

Labradorite and garnet pendant

Some labradorite beads are muddy-brownish, but some are lovely neutral grey.  They go with pretty much everything. This one has also silver flashes. I used grey enamelled wire and garnet beads for decoration, but the design is quite simple. Available on Etsy.

Grey agate pendant

The problem with all these beautiful agate beads is that I like them so much, that I want to use them all up and make dozens of beautiful pendants. Also, I’m afraid that I’ll mess up the wrapping (which has happened quite often), so I’m reluctant to use them. So they’re just sitting there in a box, waiting until I get brave enough to use them, and I just keep drooling over them every day. …

Long gothic black & grey pendant

I’ve been wondering for a long time what to do with this bead. It’s plain, without any banding, just with two or three ridiculous yellowish spots on its sides. I decided to do a cage that conceals the spots, as I thought they were just pointless. I’ve just recently bought grey wire, which is called “smoke”, while the warm grey one that I’m using for steampunk is called “gunmetal”, which is somewhat confusing. Anyway, grey …

Grey gothic pendant

Lately I’ve been mostly making heart shaped pendants, because they’re extremely popular. But I’m thinking that not everybody likes hearts, I personally prefer oval or round pendants. And I have these beautiful silver foil grey beads, where the foil covers all the bead, not only the middle of it. Perfect for something goth and dark. The other beads I used are fire polished glass with metallic coating, which makes them hard to describe (they’re pretty …

Labradorite, opalite and dyed agate – two pendants

After my opalite and garnet pendant was successful (although it was supposed to be a bracelet in the beginning), I’ve decided to use this pattern further and try different wire and stone combinations with it. I was only limited by the kind of headpins I had, as they only come in a limited range of colours. These are my favourite ones so far: opalite + blue agate + labradorite, and purple agate + opalite + …
