I am pretty excited to show you my latest beaded necklaces and to share with you that I now have the butane gas ready to go to begin my precious metal clay journey of creativity. I can hardly contain my excitement of where this journey is going to take me.
Here are some images of my newest beaded necklaces – I hope to be displaying my first silver clay pieces as I learn to incorporate my art into jewellery. I aim to make unique one-off pieces, so I think it is going be quite exciting!
And here is my onyx and quartz crystal beaded necklace with figure 8 clasp. I love this necklace as I have had the red ceramic beads for quite some time, waiting for just the right semi-precious beads to come along. And now they have a place in the world!
And here is the back of the necklace.
I will be posting a blog shortly about a fabulous local Artist, Karryn Lesley whom I had the pleasure of interviewing last Wednesday evening. I have recorded our conversation and will be creating podcast to share with you all. She is a magnificent artist and has just started up her own studio where she sells her artwork to people for affordable prices and they are being purchased before she has finished creating them on the easel.
So make sure you catch my next blog. I will be cutting the audio this weekend and hope to have it live with images of Karryn’s work up here next week. It is extremely exciting for me to share this with you.
I spent the weekend creating jewellery. A triple row glass beaded necklace with gold toned findings and a gold toned chain. I fell in love with these crackle two toned beads. They look like the ocean on a beautiful sunny day.
The necklace can be expanded if required as I put a lobster clasp on the back. It is a truly stunning piece of jewellery. At least, I think so!
The above photo shows what the necklace looks like from above, looking down.
This is an image of the clasp and chain at the back of the necklace.
Here are some matching earrings that I made with gold toned earring hooks and plastic backings.
