Wires and seed beads

Few days ago I was sitting with needle, thread and seed beads and making bracelet replacement...
I was thinking about making another wrapping bracelet, but did nothing with it...

Next day I decided, will do new bracelet in orange and turquoise and add one of copper charms I still have. But in some point of stringing seed beads I stopped with new thought: 'What if I make seed beads necklace with wire weaved pendant?'
That was very tempting :)


So I stopped what I was doing and took wire as you see :)


Then started weaving and adding seed beads :)


Finished pendant looked ok for me so I placed it on seed bead necklace and result you can see below :)


Tribal? Native? Definitely with positive vibes :) Do you agree?

Later I made two more pendants with seed beads, but possibly I'll put them on suede cord.


Orange and turquoise again :)


And yellow/green with Preciosa seed beads :)

Hope you like them as much as I do :) That all for today peeps! 
Have a great day!

Lazy Tobisia :)

Gee looks like I have long breaks between my posts, bad, bad girl me....

Feel very lazy lately and is really hard to see me crafting...

Fact I made few cards lately... customer order from France - Christmas cards with fairies.

Fact I added earrings to one of my bracelets - customer asked for it before purchase.


I spent bit of time with wires and even made few nice pieces :) Sorry for pics tho, but sometimes is really hard to take good photo of jewellery.


Asymmetrical with amethyst


Another bit asymmertical piece with amethyst


Heart shaped pendant with amethyst - already listed for sale in my etsy shop:https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/464794408/copper-necklacependant-heart?ref=shop_home_active_3

I hope my inspiration mode will back soon and I'll make few more pieces to show you :)

That's all for today friends! Till next post :)

September... times flies!

OMG! How it is possible that I didn't write for soooo long?

Fact, my 4yo boy starts big boys school, so lots of preparing...

Fact, I needed more wire, bought it and received it yesterday :)

Fact, I'm bit nervous about cardmaking competition I send my cards on - right, if I didn't mention this in here, I'm also making greeting cards :) Some of them you can find on my other blog: http://tobisiasworld.blogspot.co.uk/.

Because I was bit short of wire I didn't make much lately, but that not means I did nothing :)


Little pendant with turquoise blue bead


Crazy swirls with glass bead (green-purple)

Meanwhile I was making Christmas cards - customer order, and pair of chainmaille earrings with owls to match wrapping bracelet I had for sale in my etsy shop - cards and completed set already sold :)

Yesterday I received my new wire and made this pendant:


I used amethyst beads I found ages ago in charity shop (I checked them in jeweller shop and beads were confirmed to be proper amethyst ). 

I really like wireweaving, cause this technique giving me a chance to experiment and pieces I'm making can be small or big, round or not, with lots of swirls or just few and I can change my mind in any moment regards final look of piece I'm making.
