Chalcedony Pendant

Chalcedony PendantThis lovely Chalcedony pendant is a good example of free form wire wrapping.
 I took  a good size (I suggest around 12 inches) of sterling silver, in this case.  Inserted the wire about half way through the chalcedony briolette.  It’s ok if one side of the wire is not exactly matched up with the other, but close in length.  I bent the wires upward and added my seed beads and Swarovski pearls.  Next, I crossed the wires at a place where I liked the look…it’s free form, so do your thing.  I made my wire wrapped loop up higher and wrapped my wire down from the loop in a free form style.
 
I just love the look of Chalcedony.  It’s a beautiful stone.  I have some more in my stash…I may have to make earrings next  🙂

New Line of Hammered Metal Earrings and Pendants

I recently listed these new copper earrings on my BohemianIce etsy.  I am starting a new line of hammered metal earrings and pendants in copper, sterling silver and brass.  I really enjoy working with metal…the bending, twisting, hammering, wrapping….to me, it’s all fun.  This pair is made in a zigzag shape….these and most of my earwires are handmade (I have a few manufactured ones left, but I like making my own).  I wire wrapped Swarovski Crystal Rivoli’s on this pair and hammered the copper for texture and sparkle.
