Creating a Woven Pendant Without a Plan

I just completed this pendant that I actually started several days ago. Other deadlines kept cutting in line. But, today I finally patinaed it.  Below are a few pictures of her being created.

I regretted my choice of weave. It's very time consuming with little pattern interest.  I needed to add some features.  The crystal is large at 24mm.

Here I'm making some progress by adding new weaves and wire embellishments.  At this point I'm still not sure of the final design.

At this point I'm a little nervous. I now have a plan and fingers crossed that the wire will agree.

Here she is. The final step is to patina and polish.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a joy filled and creative day!

Creating Gift Ideas

It's that time of the year when the shoppers are looking for gifts. So, this darling was designed just for them. A 14mm crystal, a bit of weave, some girlie curls and a braided bail. On it's way to the Old Depot in Black Mountain, NC item ppj23 $25.

This bead is not typical of my style, but I was in a colorful mood when I ordered them.  The bead is glass. Item ppj22 $25 on its way to the Old Depot.

I resist making sets, because I think its fun to mix things up . But, the idea of making a jumbo version of my best selling earrings was loud and clear in my head when I woke up.  I used a purple crystal rondelle on steroids with some 16 ga wire.  Pendant item ppj21 $25 along with the earrings item epj31 $22.

Now I've got to get back to working.  There is a pile of jewelry that needs to be patinaed and polished.

Have a great day.

Some small 10mm lampwork beads have been in my stash for years.  I think I have found use for them, with a bit of wire weave.

I've decide to use two simple weaves to make this pendant quickly so it can be a design in my $25 line.

This one is on its way to the Corner Store in Waterford, VA item ppj48 $25.

Have a joy filled and creative Day!

Smaller Pendants

Sterling Silver and 14mm Swarovski crystal

Sterling silver...Can you believe it!? I don't know what got into me.  I was compelled and yet hesitant.  It is after all pricey wire.  And to top it off I've used a 14mm Swarvoski crystal.  Yes, I've added a SS chain.  I found it in my inventory stash.  Item ppg1 $46.

Working and photographing SS was/is different.  It'll improve with more SS. Did I say more?

Here's another pendant in the midst of it's creation.  It was the prototype for the above sterling silver version.  I did this to know how much wire to use and avoid wasting my limited supply of sterling wire.

Here she is, copper weave and a 14mm agate.  The neck wrap turned out to be a different width, but that's the magic when working with my hands.  I like the smaller size. Let's see how my customers feel.  Item ppg 2 $38.

Thank you for stopping in.  Have a joy filled and creative day!
