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!   

Labradorite beads

I’ve been preparing to the upcoming Christmas season; not sure what people will want this year, so I’m trying to make as many heart pendants as possible (this is what they usually like). In the meantime I’m working on some new designs that I haven’t tried yet, so please be patient. I promised I’d post a photo of the labradorite I brought back from Amsterdam. Beautiful <3

Reptilian pendants

I don’t remember why I had this idea. I was going for something chunky, bold and more three dimensional than what I usually make. They resemble reptiles a little bit, hence the name. Also, I wanted to make something for myself to match my blue clothes (finally made something totally different and decided to sell the reptilian ones). I played around a bit, matching different grey and blue shades in different stones (agate, kyanite, lapis …

Long copper earrings

I’m particularly proud of these somewhat ethnic looking earrings, and they took a long time to make. Shaping the wire, hammering, wrapping, hammering again… The stones used here are labradorite, lapis lazuli, natural moonstone and onyx. Just one color and the rest is neutral. Well, except the copper, of course. Available on Etsy.    

Fantasy inspired amulet pendant

This is another approach to the quartz point beads. This time I decided to make something that looks like a special powers amulet. I don’t know if it does, but I know that the wrapping is too complicated, as it covers the whole quartz part and it became almost invisible. The rough beads wrapped into the design are labradorite. The pendant was supposed to be symmetric, but there are many irregularities. I must work more …

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.

Custom earrings

I was asked to make matching earrings for this labradorite and garnet pendant: I came up with this, although I’m pretty sure I’ve seen a similar design on the deviantArt somewhere: I’ve made several pairs with different wire and bead combinations and then I got bored with the design. I’m not sure whether to list them online, right now I’m wearing one pair to see if they’re not too heavy.

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.
