About this design:

Playing around with wire wrapping, and came up with this piece. Thought the Indonesian tube beads went well with the Round Rabbit pendant. I have been in a slump lately for designing, but I think I like the way this one turned out. What do you all think?


Round Rabbit pendant, Pinocean lampwork beads, Indonesian glass tubes, Mahogany wood bark beads, copper leaf hook clasp, O rings, copper chain, spacers and jump rings, vintaj brass bead caps.

    Thanks everyone for the lovely comments! They always put a smile on my face :-)

    Hi Julie! The clasp is from daisychainextra on etsy. You better hurry, she is closing her shop as soon as she sells out of stuff. I might as well mention where the wood beads came from, since I didn’t. They are from beadmanenterprises on etsy.

    Well I would say you are definitely out of your slump. Very eclectic, Bohemian look. The O-rings are such a great touch.

    I totally understand the slump thing though. I have really been in one also and.disorganization is not helping…

    I think your wire wrapping makes this piece. The lines from the pendant continue upward through the tubes, which creates a nice sense of movement. The colors are well chosen. Good job!
