Journey into the Centre

There are two reasons behind the name to this blog post. Firstly, because of the beautiful beads in the centre of each pendant - a stunning faceted amethyst coin bead and a natural aquamarine bead which has a feeling of a mystical world with swirls of coloured mist.

And the second meaning behind the name is to do with my recent journey into wirework where I have been making lots of different framed pendants and earrings with spirals and loops surrounding the frame. This time I have ‘journeyed’ into the centre of the frame with loops and spirals and have been inspired to do so by the wonderful wirework of Diny of Natural Jewels whose work I have admired for a long time.

Celtic Drop Earrings

A simple design with sterling silver wire and mystic blue quartz. I was going to add more gemstones to the frames but after consultation with my nearest and dearest, I had to agree that 'less is more'.

Spiral Loop Teardrop Pendant - Variation

Another 'spiral loop frame' pendant with luscious deep pink rhodolite garnet faceted rondelles. Now available in my Folksy and Etsy shops.

Rhodolite Garnet Spiral Loop Teardrop Frame Sterling Silver Pendant

This is a variation of my Sea Maiden Pendant. I am really enjoying exploring and extending this technique/design, trying out variations. This pendant was planned to have a briolette in the centre of the teardrop frame but when I got to that part, I decided I liked it without.

As yet, this pendant has no name - any suggestions?
