MANEWELRY MONDAY

Our first piece in this new series is a deceptively large cuff(that blue kyanite bead is 1.5″ high!). It’s paired with turquoise chips, Bali silver, and copper. There is no elasticity to the bracelet so it closes easily with a simple magnetic clasp.

The One That Started It All

This is the necklace that started it all. Before this necklace I was someone who played with beads and tried to figure out how everything worked. So one afternoon, many years ago, I decided I would learn to wire wrap beads. Looking at this piece now, I see I wasn’t even close to what I consider the proper technique today, but back then I could not have been more proud.
