My first love in jewelry-making. Inspired by my first class taken in Miami three years ago and taught by Phoenix-based Dallas Lovett, an inspired wireworker and designer. He taught me to be patient, steady and strong! Thanks, Dallas.
A two-inch oval focal bead is the centerpiece of this 17-inch long wire-wrapped necklace. The bead is made from the inside out, wrapping bead upon bead (caramel, ice aqua and mauve) until it is the right size, shape and look. Coiled links connect the components, interspersed with copper beads and mauve wire-wrapped lampwork beads. $150. (Click on the photos to see more detail.)
Each is made to fit about a 6-1/2 inch wrist. If yours is larger or
smaller, let me know and I can adjust the bracelet or the clasp. Each
is unique: lampwork beads, carved bone, Sterling findings and charms,
special dangles, wireworked and/or wrapped beads. They look great when
worn in threes: one fancy and two plain or vice versa.
Like a bangle only jointed in two or three sections with special beads and findings just like the bangles. $150. (Click on the photos to see more detail.) The sterling bangles are $150. The copper and brass are $90.
A yummy lime green "brangle" of Sterling silver coils, wirework, embellished beads, lampwork, ceramic and furnace glass beads, topped off with Cloisonne flower and frog dangle. On the Cloisonne is a forward facing accent. $150. (Click on the photos to see more detail.)
Turquoise and Sterling silver combine in a lovely Southwestern flavored bangle. Lampwork, miracle and furnace glass beads combine with Bali silver and turquoise bear and silver bird fetish dangles. $150. (Click on the photos to see more detail.)
