Jewelry Making May 22

I need to get back to making more pieces more often.  I am finding a lot of beads, gemstones and findings more often than I have time to do something with them.


The red and gold glass beads looked fun and can go with the Harry Potter themed jewelry I have been working on. 


I used sterling silver findings, chipped rose quartz beads and dyed blue agate for the pair below.


The dyed coral spacer wasn't as bright red as the spot of the red and turquoise glass bead, but it worked.  The dyed blue green agate sits as the larger bottom bead.


I added square hematite spaces with the glass beads and used all sterling silver for the findings. 


This is a pretty onyx pendant with a silvertone finish.  Not sure if I am going to attach it to a chain or to cloth.

There is a slight color difference with these amethyst pendants or points.  They are heavy and would need a strong leather cord.


I paired the lighter point with a softer satin cord, but it can be later switched out with a thicker leather cord.
