Good Luck

Hot pink is my color... Agate is known as good luck stone. I decide to make a pendant out of silver wire. There are six pink Swarovski crystals woven into the design. The pendant mounted on a silver plated snake chain.

Brown Natural Agate

The brown natural agate is extra large bead and make perfect pendant. Gold wire combines with colors in the stone bead nicely. I  wire wrapped and accented it with brown seed beads.
The necklace was woven with a double Viking Knit weave in gold wire.

Ocean Jasper

Recently I've been working on some gemstones and wire wrapping. 
This handmade wire wrapped pendant is made with rare, natural stone called an Ocean Jasper from Madagascar. This beautiful stone in cream, gray and pink. The energy that jasper provides full of warmth.

I used permanently colored copper wire with cherry quartz round beads all around the pendant. The pendant hung from removable "chain" necklace cherry quartz beads individually wrapped on copper wire.

(Motif Twentyone)

Finally, after many days of trial and error, I managed to finish the carnelian necklace. However the biggest problem was to find a thread in the right color and right size. I combined Perle Iris thread %100 Egyptian cotton, beautiful variegated amber brown color and DMC solid amber color. 
The thickness and the color of the thread is very ideal for my project. 

I tatted with the natural carnelian and delica beads.
The result is pleasing.
