Brand New Bead Set

Decided to try something different. These are “Sticks and Stones”.SticksAndStones

These are covered with a mix of black and white enamel, accented with lines and dots of turquoise. Really fun to make abstract beads for a change.

Japanese Crest Pendants

Just finished up ten necklaces today. Yay!!

Eight Five Four Nine One Seven Six Ten Three Two

Etched copper, then punched out and riveted together. There’s crimp beads between the front and back for a space for the snake chain to go through. I added the end caps and clasp to the snake chain. Made the little glass dangles too. Pieces were patina’ed and tumbled to work-harden the metal.

Two New Sets

Set of encased beads with thin stringer work on the outside. Very time-consuming beads to make.



Set of frit beads in purple, blues and greens.

Another Purple Set

This time I did a set of purple ice chip beads.


I love making these. So easy and they look great in a necklace. They could be used in earrings since there’s a pair of each color.
