A birthday gift

31 Jul

Here is the necklace I made for my friend Paola’s birthday. Since she expressed her admiration for this necklace here, I decided to make one especially for her. I didn’t have enough blue glass beads so I used green glass beads of the same shape instead.

A gift

I made this necklace, which is a variation of this one here, as a gift for a friend’s birthday. It is made with hammered copper wire and glass beads…

Here’s a new necklace I made with some copper wire and light blue glass beads. I really like the contrast among the two colours.
I hammered and shaped the copper wire and added the beads. Very simple!

Another ring

23 Apr

Here is another ring I made in the past days. I used some copper wire and what I think is a faceted hematite squared bead. But I’m not sure about this… I mean, I’m not sure whether it is an hematite stone or what….

Anyway, I think the result is nice but I still have to improve my skills….

I’ve been thinking on how to make a ring for a while now, and I finally decided to experiment. Here is the result. At the beginning it wasn’t ment to be for my pinky but after a couple of changes of mind, it became a bit small… 😉

I’m in a wire frenzy! Here is another necklace I made for myself, baring my name. The clasp is also made by me. 🙂

Copper

17 Mar

Recently I’ve been actracted to copper wire, and when I found this lovely tutorial on how to make a Wire Heart Clasp, I decided to give it a try!

The nacklace and earings in the following photos are the results… I used thin copper wire and matte white round crystal beads to make a string with the rosary technique, then, with a thicker copper wire I made the heart shaped clasp and ring. I added a greyish/bluish faceted crystal roundel bead and a cultivated  fresh water nugget pearl for an extra accent.

I used the same materials for the earings except that I didn’t have the copper studs (and the wire used for the clasp was far too thick), so I made them out of two copper rings from this previous work… I straightened two rings and sanded one end and made a loop on the other…. et voilà!

…btw, I wear the necklace so that the lovely heart clasp is in the front. 😉
