I expect to be doing a lot of wire weaving work in the next few months – reason being that it has finally “clicked” for me, and instead of being frustrated by all but the most simple of efforts, I am getting really excited to be making some more elaborate pieces.
You can see more images of the work, and purchase if you’d like, through my Etsy shop. This piece was made following a tutorial, but now I feel confident that I can actually branch off on my own and come up with designs without following a step by step process. In fact, this afternoon I will be working in weaving a frame for a beautiful Fire Agate that I recently purchased.
I’m also making new earrings almost daily, and have been traveling this last month and stopping at bead shops along the way. Here are a few pieces that have come out of recent bead binges! Click on the images to be directed to the item in my shop.
Another pair of earrings recently made – simple and casual. A little bit of metal manipulation to halter these pretty Dove Gray Czech Glass beads.
Next is another dagger-style drop design, pinched with a delicate bail. Something a little bit unexpected!
