I also love the beautiful shades that carnelian comes in, from light shades of orange to deep russet red - a true autumnal gemstone. Here I have adapted my 'Wire Flowers' design to create this double petal flower with wrapped and coiled gemstones around the central bead.
As usual, you can find this necklace on sale in my Etsy and Folksy shops.

This pair is winging their way to her as I type (although a UK postal strike has just been announced!). I have also listed these earrings in my Etsy and Folksy shops as a 'made to order' item. I will, of course, take custom orders if you have a different colour in mind - just ask!

Firstly it shows you how to create a COILED JEWEL PENDANT, including clear instructions on shaping and hammering wire, creating spirals and wrapping and coiling techniques. Using the same techniques, the lesson goes on to show you how to create COILED JEWEL EARRINGS and a COILED JEWEL BANGLE with suggested variations.
The ‘coiled jewel’ design is very versatile and can be used in many jewellery making projects. The techniques you learn from this tutorial can also be easily adapted to different shaped pendants, earrings and bangles. (Please click the photo for more details.)
