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
A slave bracelet connects your finger and wrist. The ring is adjustable as well as the wrist chain. Handmade from brass, copper, and freshwater pearls. This unique design was inspired by Indonesian batik motifs. I combined several design elements that are usually found in Indonesian batik. A little tribute to my cultural background.

Bought the glass pendant at a summer craft show in 2011 cos ~zeratanus had a vision of it being a jewel beetle. Created this for him for Christmas, 1.5 years later. I guess my skills finally caught up to his vision More photos including reference picture is in my BLOG
For the colors I used coloring pencil and Gilder's paste applied with fingertips. Colors used: Copper, African Bronze, and a dab of Orange and Patina here and there for some style.
