Box Bead Necklace and Other Things

Finally got around to making a silver box bead necklace. Had to add some glass beads too.

SilverBoxBeadNecklace

Also finished another message locket pendant.

MessageLocket-BlueI used a glass bullet cab on the top and domed the bottom.

 

I wanted to practice what I learned in Joanna Gollberg’s glass so I did a prong setting for the lavender CZ. The cabochon is glass with enamels and frit on it.

Gray and Pink Reverse Psychology Scarf

This is the second Reverse Psychology (by Mindy Ross) scarf I’ve made. I think I’m going to keep this one for myself. I love gray and pink. Used pink triangle beads in the scarf.

It’s Been A While

Gosh, I haven’t added anything for a while. I haven’t been out making beads for a couple of months due to hurting my back. Still been making things, just not beads.Eggs1

EggPendants Beaded a bunch of eggs and made them into pendants. These were have a wooden egg shaped core.

BagMade a crochet barrel bag to hold my knitting projects. This bag too FOREVER to make. I wanted the bag to be sturdy and crochet tightly. Made with Shibui Twig yarn.

Ecru BlueMix OmbreKnitted some dish cloths for Christmas presents. These are made out of 100% cotton yarn.

FiveWrapBracelet FiveWrapBracelet1FiveWrapBracelet2Made a few leather, string and beaded bracelets. Uses some deer antler buttons for the clasps.

Bail ForgedCollarTook Fred Zweig’s class on forged collars. Was able to make a couple collars and a bail. Really fun class. Fred has so much knowledge and is willing to share everything he knows.

Pauline Warg’s Vessel Class

I took Pauline Warg’s vessel class last weekend. Here’s the two pieces I made.

PaulineWargVesselClass-2

PaulineWargVesselClass-1I still need to add a chain for the necklace part. Will probably make something up to match the vessel. The vessel is sterling silver with a etched copper piece riveted on the front. It has been formed using a hydraulic press.

PaulineWarg-FlowerVessel-2

PaulineWarg-FlowerVessel-1

This is a little flower bud holder made out of a glass syringe. The end has been closed up and the black things are o-rings. I was planning on putting a design on the front but I got lazy and just finished up the piece as is.
