Bohemian necklace 

​Super happy with how this turned out  in the end. Perfect for adding that extra punch of colour to one of many bohemian items in my closet.

Almost there!!

Assembly is always my least and most preferred process in jewelry making. All the pieced have been prepared, the design is mapped out and now the only thing standing in the way is the speed of my fingers to put it all together and bring it to life. 

Work in progress

​Here we go! Work in progress…feeling a 70’s vibe coming on…it was only fitting to use vintage glass and dyed bone to go with hand drilled turquoise. 

A labour of love

Sometimes, a heavy commitment has to be made to get the final product you put into your mind. This is most certainly the case for this men’s bracelet.

Each peanut fossil bead was wrapped within a cage handmade from thousands of silver jump rings. The cages were then woven together with leather cord and a magnetic clasp was added to bring it all together.

One of my favourite accessories for sun kissed skin is a beautiful blue stone.

In this case, larimar nuggets are wire wrapped in sterling silver together to form a loose pendant(and a fidgeter’s dream!).

 

 

 

OMNT…Boulder Opal Rondelle Bib Necklace

2013-02-02T15-12-08_7G 2013-02-02T15-12-08_5E 2013-02-02T15-12-08_3C 2013-02-02T15-12-08_1B BOULDER OPAL RONDELLE BIB

I’ve had a strand of graduated rondelle beads forever. I’ve left them until now because stringing them would be way too simple. After brainstorming and sketching some ideas, I finally found a solution that has made me happy. This kind of rondelle shape can feel limiting due to their center drilled hole. To get around this, I’ve used silver wire to turn each bead into a drop, giving the opportunity for the opal that threads through these beads to get the most exposure. The inclusions of vibrant opal are mostly very subtle, so a bright lamp work disc brings out the colour without taking away from the star of this piece.

The latest addition…

The last piece I made for my own collection has rarely left my neck since.

Featuring hundreds of individually wire-wrapped beads(peridot, peach coral, onyx, lapis lazuli and turquoise), jumbo and regular sized teardrop lamp work glass beads, and amazingly clear rock crystal beads.
