Wiring with copper

Components: Kingman turquoise pendant with copper wiring

I've been trying to learn how to wire-basically self taught (took one class). So I made this necklace without the instructor next to me. Any tips...
Components: I used this beautiful turquoise/bronze Kingman pendant. 18g square dead soft wire 22g 1/2 round dead soft wire I also made a memory wire bracelet with Kingman turquoise chip and assorted findings

Branching out

So...I took a wiring class. While the class was really good and I think I did a good job, it's all about the stone-this stone is absolutely...

Revival #3

I'm still trying to organize my beads and ended up going down another rabbit hole. I had bought these multi beryl beads (6mm) at LB months ago....

Earring update

Components: I used lucite beads and hand painted them with alcohol ink. The leaf pair have copper findings and Swarovski crystals. The Czech dagger beads came mainly from LB and some from Etsy. Notice the Czech glass watercolor flower pods in the red pair- they’re too cute(hope LB gets more in). I need a room for all these beads!

Nesting bluebird

We have bluebirds nesting in the backyard ( second hatching). I found this pendant in my bead soup bowl(that's stash put in a bowl that’s leftover...
Components: The pendant came from LB ( years ago). Beige agate and Czech beads. Copper findings. I didn’t have 4 matching Czech maple leaves, so I painted them with ink! Yes- I’m still lovin’ the ink:). I have copper chain in the back.

Ink and watercolor

I think I’m getting the watercolor look with the alcohol inks. I’m sure there is a learning curve, but I’m happy how these turned out. The 3 pair...

Crazy for ink

This lucite beads and ink is very addictive! Is anyone else going to give it a try. I’m so excited to see y’alls ideas! Also, does anyone have any...
Components: I used the gold and silver mixative with the ink colors on these- it gives a whole different look. I love both ways of painting these. The inside of the beads are just as pretty!

Showing it all-front n back

I have to say I’m very happy with how these turned out. The picture shows the leaves as red, but they are more amber in color. I made the ear wire...
Components: Lucite flowers and leaves-hand painted with alcohol ink. A little yellow Czech flower, headpins, bead cap and super new glue.

April showers bring lucite flowers

I have to be honest- working in the flower beds in my yard is what inspired me. Actually violets are two shades of purple with a yellow centers....
Components: The violets are clear lucite flowers. The others are frosted white. The other thing I forgot to mention in my last entry was if you make a mistake or don’t like how it turned out, just use the alcohol blending solution and wipe it off. Finish with either a coat of Diamond glaze. I also tried mod lodge super hi-shine clear acrylic sealer. Inks are Tim Holtz Ranger alcohol inks. I’d love to see pics if anyone else does these- share your ideas and suggestions😀

Components: I hand painted a white pair of lucite bead flowers- I just love them. Added a melon round from LB. Gold findings and a little Czech glass green spacer.

Components: I used copper wire 24g for the seedbeads. The lucite trumpet flowers I’ve had for years. Swarovski rounds. Lots of sweat and words I shouldn’t be using. 😂 oh my goodness, they are so uneven- live n learn!
