Here's a few of my new creations:
The bracelet above was inspired by the new two-hole twin beads (the ones in turquoise and gold/coppery tones). I had to see what I could do with them. So after a little playing around, this bracelet emerged! The main part is all beadwoven. The toggle was a portion of a viking knit necklace I had made, and I hammered and wire wrapped the circular part to compliment the beadwoven section of the bracelet. (I can't help but think that it looks like a fun little ferris wheel! :-D) I finished it up with my own hand-stamped tag with my logo. But if you'd like to personalize it with your own tag, you can - for yourself or as a gift! This asymmetrical, rustic, bracelet is great for every-day wear or even something a touch more fancy!
These fun earrings, I like to call my Galaxy Earrings, have been entered into Etsy Beadweaver's Challenge for December. So if you'd like to look at all the entries, go to this link between December 9 - 15, 2013: http://etsy-beadweavers.blogspot.com/. I'm sure you're going to see lot's of beaded beauties! These earrings feature a focal bead made of ceramic. I loved the swirling colors of the beads - and that's where the name from - it's like a swirling galaxy. I suspended them from a copper chain and and my own hand formed and hammered ear wires. The fun part was the beaded fringe that radiates from the bottom in shimmering blues! So much fun! These would be great with jeans!!!
This Celtic Princess necklace was inspired by the tiny, organic looking cube beads, and two holed lentil beads I had just gotten. Then I also saw a movie where the actress was wearing a very striking necklace that had this basic shape. So I created the viking knit cord and attached it to the beaded portion with includes a large Swarovski Crystal! The golden hued, mottled texture of the beads reminds me of a mosaic, and exudes old-world charm! This one-of-a-kind necklace can be personalized with your monogram too! Just check out the listing in my shop (link above)! And that brings me to number four.
4. The necklace just had to have earrings! So I created a similar shape with the beads, added a small crystal, and 14-karat gold-plated chain and french hooks to create these matching earrings!
It's been fun creating these pieces! I hope you find some inspiration here as well!
