May be too delicate to wear, but sure was fun to make!

Wire wrap pendants

Using natural stones in my wire wrap pendants.

I taught myself how to knot pearls!

It is fun for me to learn how to use new techniques for my jewelry creations!  This season I learned how to knot pearls. Similar to crocheting, it seems to be about keeping a uniform tension and using the correct size silk thread (so the pearl does not simply move over the knot)!  I was also surprised by how much extra thread I would need to knot a long strand!

Here are pictures of some of the necklaces I have knotted!
