The beginning of a new era

My favourite colours are orange, red, green, brown – it’s only natural that I like to use copper wire for creating my jewelry: it can have a great, rich tone and texture (especially when hammered and oxidized), and it goes perfectly with the beads and stones of the above mentioned colours.

Lately, however, more and more people have suggested that I should try using silver plated wire as well, because there are people – potential buyers -, who prefer that. I’ve tried. Here you have the result that – to my surprise – are not so far from my taste either.

Simple and feminine

These are the first pieces of jewelry I’ve designed for someone else: my college roommate and friend. This way it was easier for me not to keep this set for myself (I have problems in that department :-), and it was an interesting process to try to come up with a design and materials to suit somebody’s personality. I think it was a successful attempt :-D The elegant rose quartz coins are framed by a simple wire pattern, and the boiled egg treatment gave the pieces a nice, antique-y feeling.

Like a kid in the candy store

 I like online shopping (I buy books, clothes, household appliences) because I can find almost anything, compare products, prices etc. So far I have usually bought my jewelry materials from webshops, too, but I have met some problems: I cannot buy by the piece, I have to wait much, the photos sometimes don’t even resemble the real color of a wire or bead etc. That is why I was very happy to discover a small shop that sells just what I need (besides the wires, unfortunately). I can touch the beads, see their color and texture, feel their weight – I behave like a kid in a candy store :-D

This pair of earrings is the first result of my frequent visits to the shop. I added a simple wire motive to the unakite rectangle – and that’s it!

Drops of coral

This set is my absolute favorite so far! The coral drops are so beautiful, they have such a rich texture that I only tried to frame them with this simple shape of oxidized copper wire. I think it is a successful combo :-)

Another first

I have seen on the internet a lot of beautiful, elegant pieces of jewelry made of silver plated wire. I have even ordered a few meters of this material, but I haven’t felt like working with it till now. When I finally gave it a try, the result turned out to be quite good: two simple pairs of earrings, one with glass beads, the other with coral cubes. However, my true love is and remains the copper :-)

Red berries on the branch

Another pair inspired by the vacation drawings. Inspired – I write, because the original design turned out to be impossible to make (with the beads I had, at least), so the earrings took final shape just there, under my pliers. First I didn’t like them much, but now I think the small red beads resemble some berries on a branch, making the earrings a pair of playful summer jewelry.

A drop of red

Last week, while on vacation, I drew a lot of new earring models. This pair is the first one to come to life, and they turned out exactly how I wanted. They are my new favourites!
