Artisan Tourmaline Fringe Earrings with Bali Sterling Silver Beads

 I had these gorgeous multicolored tourmaline "fringes" with lots of cute sterling silver coils under each little sparkly bead laying around for months on my working table. They didn't work out in my original design as I envisioned, and I couldn't find a place for them for a while. Recently I went through my stash of Bali sterling silver beads and these saucer shaped beads with dots aroung the edges seemed very promising. They turned out perfect! And they have nothing in common with my original design, except for the fringes, of cause.

I'm in Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine!

Hooray, I was featured in Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine, Winter 2011 issue!

It's surprisingly rewarding to see my name in print for the first time.

There is also two pages of step by step instructions pictures.

I  made PDF tutorial of this technique also available for sale in my etsy shop (with a few changes) :

New photos of old stuff

I'm so incredibly lucky that I have a very talanted photographer Irina (who happens to be my friend) live nearby! She recently offered me to photograph  my artisan jewelry and I gladly picked some of my most stubborn pieces that I found so hard to photograph myself. I tried, honestly, but I didn't have a single decent picture of them.

Here is what Irina come up with. Aren't these photos beautiful? Can't stop looking at them! Thank you, Ira!!!

Half Circle Oxidized Copper and Turquoise Necklace

Half circle is one of my favorite shapes for jewelry.
Oxidized copper and turquoise combo is another one of my absolute favorites.
This textured woven half circle is adorned with bright turquoise beads that form a V-shape (that happened unintentionally, but I like it). Lot's of twisted wire in wrapping give the necklace rish, interesting texture.
