    This is a great souvenir of your trip – really nice! Every time you wear it you’ll be reminded of the trip. I find rokcs I think I want to try to wrap, too, so am also interested in seeing the back view when you get a chance. Thanks for sharing!

  • lizbeads commented on the Design “Asymmetric”   2 years, 3 months ago

    Oh I like this – very nice use of the colors, and the asymmetry gives it “texture” if you will – looks like a fun piece to wear! Plus I am partial to lampwork beads that are different like this one!

  • This is very nice! Looks like you’ve been doing it for years! Did you use craft wire or sterling? What gauge? Did you have some instructions to follow or ?? I like it!

  • I agree with everyone, Sonja – very nice designs! I’m a fan of combining wire with special beads and am trying to learn these wirework techniques with some books and an occasional class. May I ask what gauge wire you used?

  • These are really cool! I like the detail (you have far more patience than I) for the wings and legs, etc. What a good idea for using up odds and ends of beads one may have!

  • How about Chips ‘n’ Sals? The coppoer pieces sort of look like chips and the reds like salsa. :-)

  • I concur! Wow. You could have customers put there personal messages inside pendants that are meant to be gifts from them to a special person!

  • Shannoon, I like the black background on this as it really shows off the variations in the stones, and the design. IF the stones didn’t have such variation you could go with something more “decorative” for background but that might detract from the beautiful stones in the piece.

    Very nice piece, BTW!

  • This is very pretty! How did you attach the swiriles to the rest – just string the beading wire through them or make wire loops for each?

  • I think you are very brave to work with seed beads, period! LOL Too small on the ol’ eyes!
    Theser are really cool though especially since you can wear them several different ways.
