New pendants

I am a huge fan of Caremore's store over on Etsy. I love her vision and creativity in her wire wrapping. Every piece makes me gasp and oooooohhhhh.

I eyeballed a few of her pieces and tried to apply her technique to a few stones of mine.

This is the outcome.

My first attempt. This is a top drilled feldspar bead, bout the size of a quarter. Feldspar helps us to find unconventional and exciting ways to reach our goals. With that in mind, I added a little purple star, to always remind me to reach for the stars when I set goals for myself.

Try 2.

Here I stacked 2 magnesite disks and wrapped them with copper. I think it looks like an Easter bonnet - my daughter thinks it looks like a boob.................

Try 3.

I love this low quality moss quartz bead. There is so much texture to it, it feels great in your hand. I added more copper swirls and added lepidolite and a faceted quartz bead. I love the qualites of lepidolite it is a stone of calm, trust, and acceptance. Quartz is an amplifier, so how awesome is this combination!

Stop on by Caremore's store and get wow'd by her work - I promise you won't be disappointed!

If you dont' see me for a while - I have a new toy -and it is occupying all my time :)

Later Kids!!!!!
