For those of you following my updates on Instagram and Facebook, this will not come as surprise :) .... I'm having a gemstone period. I added a lot of new gemstone pieces to the handmade wire crochet jewelry pieces that I make, and im even wearing one of them.... which I don't usually do.
All these new gemstones and the ongoing ones are gathered under a NEW "Gemstone Jewelry" collection here on my website. Some of the new stones you will notice are Rose Rhodonite, earthly looking Pyrite with some metal sparks & Gray Labradoritethat has silver shimmering sparks in it.
These 3 have joined the ongoing : Green Prehnite that looks like a capsule of a little forest, Olive Jade that has an amazing mat finish, Yellow calcite, Purple Amethyst, Blue Lapis lazuli, shiny Black Onyx & Turquoise, quite a selection I would say.
But it doesn't end here, I've also started to research new wire crochet designs to compliment these large gemstones that I'm so enthusiastic about, a sneak peek into my sketchbook can show you my start point, but it is early stages to know which designs will mature and which will make it into a mature design.
Naturally they don't even have any nicknames yet, will maybe a few do . there is sunny sunshine, a funny cat , a medal , a Greek cross and a dancer .... any guess who the dancer is ? but as you can see they are only half way there with open loose edges, only half backed.
Would love to hear your thoughts...
P.s. in case you are new here, you are welcome to DIY this design via my potion pendant Wire crochet Pattern, click here to my patterns section.
