Designing a Willow tree (by request) gave me headache and I almost gave up! But I finally had a break through and finished it and loved it. I hope it looks like a Willow tree! Fabricated and wire wrapped from scratch using copper wire and sheet. The green stone at the bottom is Malachite.
I think I'm gonna make more of this design. This one is sold.
This wire wrapped pendant was a commission. Visit my website for other jewelry Popnicute.com
I believe this was the most romantic style yet of Popnicute Hearts. See the complete list of all the hearts I made in facebook. Laura had a dream of wearing the bluest Labradorite heart and I found this stone for her. This blue is almost a periwinkle color. Hard to find color. Laura is one lucky girl! Almost 100 tiny silver-filled beads were woven onto the scalloped border giving the appearance of fine lace, besides the beads, the metal used is argentium silver. Three blue dangles at the bottom are swarovski crystals. I think it would make a nice bridal pendant
Cornucopia: an abundant supply of good things of a specified kind.
So a customer sent me her broken ring and asked me to make her a necklace with it with "moon crater" element in it but she gave me full reign on the design so here's what I did for her! Aquamarine is her favorite stone. Both focal and stone chips are Aquamarine. Handmade entirely from copper sheet and wire there are a lot of things going on in there. Basically most of the fabrication techniques I could do if not all; foldforming, air chasing, soldering/brazing, riveting, forging, and wire wrapping. I made a hinge clasp for it too. Very pleased with this one!
I also experimented with the photo style. The gradient is achieved by lighting only.
A simple Swarovski crystal pendant featuring a custom made bead cap from Argentium silver with scalloped edging. I had fun fusing the silver together to form a seamless cap. This pendant is kinetic and swings freely to the front and back anchored by a swirly scroll wire design. Popnicute tag and dangle finish off the cord. Tie to fit Silver components are completely handmade from scratch.
Made of brass and copper featuring a special material, salmon skin leather, and a pink heart stone. I stuffed the salmon skin to create a 3D effect. Riveted and wire wrapped. I went for BIG. I hope it gets selected and worn by one of the girls in the show
*Especially designed for celebrity Drew Barrymore*
HEART PENDANT #16.
Popnicute, in association with The Artisan Group, contributed in this collaborative gift bag prepared especially for Drew Barrymore
I just hope she likes it!!
This is an elaborate modification of my signature design, Popnicute Hearts. The hand pierced frame is made of brass. The wire and findings are copper. Original design by Popnicute *^_^* The stone is Labradorite. This heart pendant is double sided. More and bigger pictures can be seen in facebook.
A client wanted me to make her a larger than life necklace for her to wear. Koi fish to represent her twin boys and a lotus flower to represent her baby girl. So This is what I came up with. It's huge but still in comfortable enough weight to wear and lay well on the chest as the chain links help each part to move freely. Natural Amber is the focal stone as well as the beads. I've been working on this for months now and I'm glad that it's done
The pieces are cut like puzzles handmade from copper and brass, in sheet and wire form. Sawn and filed to fit. A total precision job. A brain twister fo' sure
Lots of obstacles and frustration to overcome but I'm satisfied with the result especially since I'm pretty dang new at soldering <-- read my blog for unpublished sketch and photos.
