My Weekend Projects


About this design:

This weekend was spent playing with wire and using beads in my stash in a different way. Got a couple of books at B&N to give me some inspiration and learn new techniques. These are a few of my favorites from the dozen or so I did! More to come.

Components:

various Czech crystals, gemstones, Artistic Wire

    These are beautiful. I would like to try my hand at something like this too, just have not been brave enough. Great work.

    Agreeing with Crazy Beader (ut-oh…) I love the green one the most. But all of these are such great feats. You’re a master of the bendable wire, Cindy!!

    Thank you everyone! I sold the purple one to a co-worker; as soon as she saw it “It’s mine!” She wore it right then on a chain she already had on.

    One of the books I got is “Build Your Own Wire Pendants” by Kimerly Sciaraffa Berlin. The green one is modeled after the one on the cover of the book. I like the free-form style, but if you ask me to wire wrap a cab or un-drilled stone I fail miserably! :p Still trying though.

    Cindy….you’ve outdone yourself,with these beauties. Can’t pick a fav..as they all have a life of their own. I can see I’m not the only beader who wants to branch out and learn this art.
    It’s very inspirational.
