Ornament_0912_001

This year for one of my friends I decided to make an ornament – well it was almost going to be a pendant but I knew that she really likes having a decorated tree… so I added the ribbon.

I used carved bone beads, glass beads, color wire, and bright green ribbon.

I like how this turned […]

These earrings are another set that were made as a series for a commission to go with a pendant that had already been purchased the prior year. I made 4 sets of earrings for this commision to give my customer a choice. A slightly larger version of this set was chosen.

The customer who bought this one ended up commissioning a pair of drop earrings to complement it. The irridized glass frit helps to set this one off – giving it a nice shimmer in shifting light.

I had a random assortment of blue glass beads and wanted to show them off. So I started working with some silver wire and coiling them to best feature the beads in question. Here I mixed a square bead as a focal with an oval round as a dangle.

Earlier I wrote – KT commissioned me to re-design a necklace she had.
I hadn’t seen it yet – however I told her to send it ahead and I’d do what I could.
