A Twist of Lime

P1130930x

I made these two Twist of Lime pendant thongs, based on my original Splash of Lime Trinity Wrap.

P1130226x

Both reversible so that annoying twist of pendant doesn’t really matter anymore.

Copper & Stone

P1130900x

I love how these beads turned out if I say so myself.

P1130864x

I used a graphite roller to make the different shapes but then finished them off in the flame to lose some of their regularity and eveness.

P1130908x

The swirls are made by sticking a thin rod of clear glass into the bead whilst it is hot and then twisting.  Quite an ingenious trick but so simple.

Wrap It Up!

This is the first of my wraps that I have to show you.

P1130376x

I have made quite a collection of them and, so far, they have been really popular.

This one is slightly different in that I used sari silk instead of faux suede.  It gives a lovely boho look to the piece, with its naturally fraying edges and softness on the wrist.

As with all my pieces the beads are glass and handmade by myself.  As are the copper findings and clasp.

Me, Myself and I

I actually don’t wear much in the way of jewellery and although I try everything I make for comfort, practicality and appearance it rarely stays on for much longer than a few minutes.

It’s not mine to wear.  It’s yours.  Hopefully.  One day maybe.

But I decided to treat myself to a couple of pieces for my birthday.

P1130568x

A co-coordinating bracelet and necklace.  Not really matching.  I am not such a fan of things that match exactly.  I like things to complement each other rather than be identical.

P1130556x

Again,  Cindy Wimmer’s The Missing Link provided me with the inspiration for the main big hoop links in the necklace.

P1130557x

A mix of etched handmade beads in beachy shades of greens, blues and sands.

You can now find me and The Forge on Etsy!

Copper & Stone – 1

Inspired by this book The Missing Link by Cindy Wimmer I have started a new range or pieces.  Wrapped copper with semi-precious stones and my own handmade beads.

A bit more rustic and raw.  But I like the effect.  And will experiment some more.

These pieces are made using unakite.  A semi-precious stone known for it’s balancing soothing properties.
