Elegant White Earrings

It's time for yet another reveal at Art Elements, and this month, Claire Fabian has thought of 'White' as the theme. I ran through my ever-growing to-do list of projects, wondering if white could be the star in any of them. In the end, as it happens more often than not, I made a brand… Continue reading Elegant White Earrings

Black Comet Earrings

A quick post about a quick pair of earrings that I made - I had some blackened translucent polymer clay left over from my image transfer attempts for the coasters that I made recently. I used these for a couple of charms, and made an earring pair by adding in a bunch of bead components… Continue reading Black Comet Earrings

Art Elements Mar Theme – Nests

I've loved following the Component of the Month challenges from the folks at Art Elements, where team members would give away components every month to design with. I've seen some gorgeous stuff from the AE team as well as the guests. The only reason that kept me from participating is that historically, I've received most… Continue reading Art Elements Mar Theme – Nests

Soutache Earrings

A PCA-inspired project that I truly loved researching and working on -- Polymer Clay Soutache earrings! Before I registered for PCA, I had no idea what soutache is. I might actually have pinned soutache jewelry onto my macramé board, for all I know. But after some wandering around the Internet with a purpose, I ended… Continue reading Soutache Earrings

Chenille Bracelet with Beaded Bead

I used tubular Chenille stitch for this bracelet. (Sara Spoltore has a detailed video tutorial for this stitch.) The finished pattern in mine looks different from hers because of the bead types that I used -- a small change in size or type makes for quite a change, doesn't it? 🙂 The beads that I… Continue reading Chenille Bracelet with Beaded Bead

Wire Weave Bangle

Time for a wire weaving project! I made a wire-weave bangle last week, with a pearl bead duo forming the focal element. Or it could be a wire-weave tiara, if you ask my favorite model, Penguin. 😉 For this bangle, I used three 16-gauge base wires and a 24-gauge weaving wire, both in a gold… Continue reading Wire Weave Bangle

Beaded Earrings for a Set

I made companion earrings to wear with my beaded pendant -- the image-transfer one. While I was looking up stitches to use, I ran into a tutorial by Bronzepony Beaded Jewelry for exactly the design I had in mind! That's the second time this month I'm running into ready-to-use recipes for stuff that I want… Continue reading Beaded Earrings for a Set

Pearl dangle earrings

I'd made a pair of wavy pearl dangle earrings a while ago, but noticed I wasn't wearing them much. So I decided to give them a quick makeover. I twisted the waves into rings (still squiggly ones though) around the pearls. Heh, I really didn't want to waste that wire even if it was slightly… Continue reading Pearl dangle earrings

Torus necklace

Remember the Torus pendant that I'd made a while ago? There are more of those metallic-silver tori in my stash -- three, to be precise -- and I'd really wanted to use them for something. Earrings were my persistent initial thought, but these tori are too big for earrings. I know my wrists are small… Continue reading Torus necklace

Pearly set

Since I'm resigned to the fact that I only have access to limited kinds of wire to make jewelry, I've been thinking of ways to use all of the stuff that my sister had bought a long, long time ago. And on a leisurely day recently, I made this pearly jewelry set -- I used… Continue reading Pearly set
