Multi Color Disk Bead Wire Wrapped Necklace and Earrings on Yellow Brass


I found a strands of these rainbow colored disk beads of dyed howlite. I fell in love at first site. 

I had to have them. 

Now what to do with them. 

I have had them for well over 2 years really wondering what I could do with them, other than the occasional accent bead in earrings or pendant. 

I was pushing them around on my work bench, and then just for fun began to stack them. 

That was when I go the idea!

Wire wrap the stacks into segments and make a necklace out of them. 

I used 20 ga yellow brass wire for the links and 18 ga yellow brass wire to make the hook. 

I added an accent of vintage crystal to the hook. 

It can be worn, with hook in front or in back. 

Versatile little necklace!








The earrings I wire wrapped on 18 ga yellow brass with a hammered spiral on the bottom. 

The ear wires are of hammered 20 ga yellow brass. 

  


Howlite is used to relieve anxiety, tension and stress.

Maybe that is why it is dyed so many happy, bright colors!

Sodalite on Copper Wire Loop Earrings - Logic



18 ga copper wire formed into a loop and hammered for stability.

Wire wrapped with 24 ga copper wire to keep the shape.





Center drilled heishi cut sodalite beads wire wrapped to the bottom.



Surprisingly light and with a flirty fun swing. You know they are there, but they are not distracting. 

Sodalite is the stone of logic. It encourages rational thought, objectivity, truth and intuition, along with honest communication of feelings. Sodalite brings emotional balance and calms panic attacks. It enhances self-esteem, self-acceptance and self-trust.

Bronzite Pendant

Some drilled beads can be so big, that they are hard to work into a design, mainly due to the weight of the stone. 

Such was the case of these 20mm bronzite bead. 

Why not make a focal of its own!

Bronzite is confidence and courage. It helps to resolve unsettled emotions. Great stone to use for new moon rituals. 

It was so simple! I used 18 ga sterling wire, made a bale at the top, pushed it thru the bead, brought it up the front of the bead, made a spiral and finished the tail at the bail. 

Viola!!

What simple designs have you made that turned into a stunning focal piece?
