Viking Knit - How Fun!!

I recently took a class using clay and wire and the highlight of the class was learning how to do viking knit. Just by chance I went to Bead Fest - Wire that Friday with my dear friend Kristie of Sculpted Windows and there was a booth for a viking knit tool kit and wire. Here's my first project, a birthday gift for my daughter's 30th birthday. Can't wait to make more things!!

My First Beadwoven Beaded Shawl Pin

Handformed beaded shawl pins have been my best seller for some time now. I've decided to put a new twist on them now. Here's my very first beadwoven beaded shawl pin. Isn't she lovely? 100% handmade, the poly face cab was purchased from the Sculpted Windows Etsy shop and then I adorned her face with some beadweaving before forming it into a shawl pin. Each one will be one of a kind and sure to become a collector's item.

Chocolate Bliss - award winning piece

This gorgeous necklace featuring a stunning Bruneau Jasper cabochon won the February contest from Cabbing Rough. Each month they pick one piece created using their hand cut cabs as the winner of a $50 gift certificate toward other cabs in their Etsy shop. What a great way to keep customers coming back!

I'm honored to be the February contest winner, and, one of the few pieces that with beadweaving rather than metalsmithing.

The one of a kind necklace has already sold, but you can view my other designs by clicking HERE.

As always,
