Wire wrapped ear cuffs and earrings for a trade with the wonderful Renee Boyett of NayNayMacrame, because I am absolutely addicted to trading with her! The far left ear cuff and the one two to the right of that and the earrings in the lower left all feature paper beads made by my good friend Alina, with whom I've also had the honor of trading. The paper beads are perfect for earrings and ear cuffs, because they are incredibly light weight. Those earrings and ear cuffs feel weightless!

These earrings were made to match a set of jewelry made by my friend Renee Boyett of NayNayMacrame. Here is the set: http://chaosfay.deviantart.com/art/Sands-of-a-Fairy-Tale-348132122. We love trading with each other! You should check out her Etsy page to see all the amazing macrame jewelry she has for sale!

Catching up on stuff I haven't posted which is not for sale. This is red calcite, aventurine, cat's eye, glass and pearls with copper wire. It is awkwardly hefty and large, thus the "overkill." I think it'd be more balanced if it had some kind of excessive beaded chain or such to go with it :)

This is a gift for my fabulous friend Renee of NayNayMacrame. It was inspired by DUNE. The central stone is sunstone, which shines like flecks of sand. The wire is copper and gold plated copper. The blue beads are there to represent the spice, and the curly bit in the upper part was meant to represent the worm. The thing along the left-hand side is a claw (she sent it to me, so she knows what it came from--coyote?), here put in to represent the chrysknife/worm tooth.

Two sea glass pendants I made quite a long time ago which hadn't found homes. They have similar styles with the embellished black/copper wire, so I decided to give one to my best friend and keep the other as a set.

Show your love for natural history with this beautiful, mysterious ammonite fossil pendant wrapped in copper wire with an aged patina. The elaborate wire designs enclose the fossil in a setting of freshwater pearls and red jasper beads.
Ammonites are an extinct form of marine life similar to living cuttlefish and nautilus species. In the Middle Ages, they were mistaken for the fossilized remains of petrified snakes, and were associated with healing and oracular vision. Pearls of course are associated with beauty emerging through hardship. Red jasper is a stone for transforming ideas into action--so taken as a whole, the theme of this pendant is the transformation of prophetic vision into real action. Pendant measures just shy of 2 inches in length, and comes with a complementary ribbon or cord (stock pending).
Price: $50.00 USD
