21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cloudy Skies on: May 03, 2007 12:53:52 PM


Blue lace agate and silver plated wire. It had been a while since I had done any wire wrapping. I'm pretty pleased with this; blue lace agate is a gorgeous stone but I rarely see it set in a way that I like. I was trying to keep the setting delicate and light, even though the beads are pretty chunky (I haven't measured properly but they are probably 10mm or bigger).

Concrit welcome!
22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Flowers and hummingbirds! on: April 15, 2007 01:28:55 PM


Flower from an ugly bracelet involving lots of pink plastic beads. Vintage green millefiori beads, artisan made red lampwork, hummingbirds from a little shop in York, old beadcaps from summat or other, you get the idea. Pre-made chain mostly hung from the openwork flower, though bits are hung from the connector on the back of the flower. Not the most complicated of pieces to put together but pretty effective.

Or so I thought. Took a LONG time working out how to arrange it so that the hummingbirds weren't headbutting or being attacked by the other beads.

What else? First 'proper' post, don't be gentle, I like concrit!
