Silver Woven Earrings

Here are some silver earrings I made using a weaving technique. 
It has a "domed" look to it.  I want to try these using white pearls too.

Copper Earth-Tone Bracelet

I've used green jasper, taupe sea glass, and ivory natural pearls here with copper wire to make a bracelet.

Copper is such a pretty color.  I don't know why I don't use it more.

Frozen Holidays

Happy frozen holidays to all!  I think snow is pretty if you don't have to go out in it.  I hope the weather is great wherever you are.  Happy New Year!

Brown Medallion Necklace

This is a long necklace made of tiger's eye with golden cylindrical beads.  I made the pendant from resin, in a mold I made from a found item.   I think it looks like an antique or at least part of a space ship.
I colored the resin during the mixing, plus painted and rubbed it after curing.

Black Choker with Pendant

I decided I needed a short black necklace with a small pendant, so I went through my bead stash.  I had 9 shiny bicones, so I picked up beading needle and thread to fashion a pendant. 
Some people are very good following intricate bead weaving patterns with tiny beads.   I am not those people.  I usually get the larger beads, and then start waving my needle around thinking "I'm sure something will turn out eventually."  So, this pendant is what turned out. 
I used black beading wire for the necklace because I wanted it to show through the clear beads.

Farewell to Summer

We are starting down that path to Autumn now.  I can see the leaves falling from the trees.  Here are some photos from the local park in Summer's last hurrah.

Wooden Hoop Earrings

I experimented with some wood components, and made these earrings.
I put two beads in the middle of the hoop, and then put one bead to dangle on the end.  The color palette is all natural wood tones.
