Naked Earrings

Hoops with coils

'Naked" is the name of some new, as well as old favorite, earring designs. They are pure  antiqued copper wire, without any stones, crystals or beads.  There are many other designs on the drawing board. But, for now, I need to tackle some other priorities, .....that diswasher won't load itself!

I just noticed, all of these earrings have a spiral or two.

Large and small spirals

Love knots with spirals

Woven teardrops

Open and closed spirals

I hope to see you on my Instagram and Facebook pages.....

Happy St. Patrick's Day


In anticipation of St. Patricks Day, this green agate is now on the retail floor at Catolina Mountain Artists Guild.  It has been dressed up in a few wire weaves from titanium enamel wire and 3 petite flowers, item ps83.

Random Acts Of Weave


This was a lot of fun to create. I just kept adding weaves randomly, with some extra wire woven in. There's absolutely no way that I could possibly recreate this design. I actually tried and the attempt failed miserably.  This is destined for Hendersonville, NC tomorrow.

Tomorrow is my day to operate the co-op, always a joy for me. It should be a slow customer day, typical of a cold February day. However, I'll be busy. I'm the volunteer behind the co-ops Facebook page, so tomorrow I'll be taking pictures of everything hearts for Valentines Day. Also, I volunteer on the jury committee and we have a new exciting submission.

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

I'm a Risky Rebel



The description for this cabochon said it is lucite. I'm accustomed to the term resin.  But, what it all means is manmade plastic substance. I avoid plastic!

This isn't a popular material from what I've read in the wire community. Most folks like gemstones and a crystal here and there. Well, I thought I'd be a rebel and break down a barrier, at least in my creative world.

I wanted a turquoise color cabochon or a bead. It needed to be in my budget. My Etsy search offered a set of 4 of these.  I took a risk and ordered them. I am so happy with them. I think its gorgeous. It even held up during patina and polishing.

I set this cabochon in a classic setting.  The  embellishment is a graduating series of copper beads.  I decide to twist the remaining wires together and give them some loops.

Thank you for reading along.
Have a joy filled and creative day!

Layered Weave and Abalone Shell


Layering a weave on top of another weave is popular, however I personally have done few.  I have recently had the desire to do more of this technique.

A strand of 14mm abalone shell beads was orignally purchased with a different design in mind.  But instead, I decided to give it a bit of a layered weave on one side.  I had seen other artisans run a single wire at the bottom of the bead, over the weave to keep things in place. I decided to use this tecnique, but I have threaded on a tiny flower to disguise the bare wire.  Originally the bail was going to be a jump ring through the weave and coil at the top, but there were 2 wires left and they just wanted to have a figure 8 or corset weave to become the bail.  So a very simple design became more involved and I'm a happy gal.

Thank you for reading along.

Have a joy filled and creative day,
