Custom Made Jewelry
for the ANIMAL in YOU
It is my hope that the information presented in the following pages will help anyone interested in creating their own jewelry.
I have several pages, which contain images from a variety of work in the fields of wire wrapping, lamp work, and beaded necklaces and bracelets. Including a new page on Pet Charms, which are glass charms made from photos of family pets! It's a great way to immortalize your favorite pet.
They are all handcrafted by me and most are my own designs. I hope you find some ideas that inspire you to create your own jewelry.
The Tips section has informative and concise instructions on several topics of general interest to jewelry makers. The lessons include: Making your own jump rings, wire-wrapping techniques, how to make your own universal wire-wrapping jig, wire-wrapping ideas, and how to make a necklace adjustable while saving time and money!
There are also blank graphs which you can copy to your hard drive, then use any "paint" program to design seed bead and loom work in the comfort of your own home. Print out the finished designs to use as working patterns. There are graphs are for brick stitch, flat round peyote stitch and loom work.
You get to see the end product before you start work on it! Several examples are viewable on the PaintApplet Designs page.
