As I keep exploring with wire and what can it do for my advantages, I created this -what I call as- Cocoon Beads along the way. I like this design very much and have been incorporating them in my design -A LOT-. They’re fun, versatile, and easy to make, have this pretty organic touch in it, and they look good almost on everything! I’d like to think that these beads are one of my Signature creations.

They’re made of heavily hammered round wire and then coiled to shape. They’re that easy!

Here are a few examples of how these beads used on a design:

Last Sunday has proven itself to be a very good day. There was a quite big family gathering with cousins, second cousins and such to celebrate my grandma’s sister’s & husband of their 72nd wedding anniversary! You heard it right! Seventy second! Quite a record huh?

This kind of family gathering usually boring, i must say.. Not much to do and say for the youngins. The older party got all the fun XD But last Sunday was different! Great food overall. I got me 2 portions of Almond Pudding, and then iced Durian fruit so it tasted like ice cream (yum!!), and brought some of the cake home 😀 ah.. heaven.. XD

But to top all of that, I sold three of my jewelries. I brought them along to show my aunt and cousin who usually also helped me redistributing them. They work in fashion industry. I asked my cousin whether she would like to see my jewelries now after we finished eating. So we entered the guest room which was empty and start to dig on my stuffs. Later on her mom joined us, and then the other ladies were coming too.. It was like bees on honey XD Ah, it was so much fun.. 😉 I also got several possible orders.

If this was how a Jewelry Party look like, I’m totally gonna love it! 😀

Thanks to Evi who commissioned me!!

She liked my Autumn Love Tree of Life necklace and wanted one with copper and tiger’s eye chips. It was up to me to add anything else to match her request and gave orange and red as hints. So i told her my idea and offered a sketch. She agreed. Too bad the sketch was never made due to my excitement! <rofl> I worked on it right away after reading her e-mail XD

But whatever, i made it exactly like what i discribed to her and told her that if she didn’t like it, i’m willing to make another. but she liked it!! so yay!!!!

here it is: (spent around 6m of copper wire)

full view: i made everything myself but the chain. i hand braided the brown cord and secured it with coiled wire. i even filed the end of the wire so it wouldn’t stick out.

and because I was so pleased with the result of the commissioned pendant that i made a bangle in the similar style.
All swarovski crystals in deep red and orange. Perfect for autumn!

Made in various size of copper wire, this bangle holds its shape well, so i couldn’t be happier 😀
All wire is copper, around 14m long in total, oxidized to show the intricate details. Completely hand made by me.
