Chunky Rose Gold Glass Bead Memory Wire Bracelet

Jewelry

Rose gold has been popular for a while now, but I think this is only the second rose gold piece I’ve made!

These glass beads have a pretty, shiny, metallic rose gold finish. They’re a little bigger and heavier, making this almost like a cuff bracelet, but with the security of a memory wire bracelet. You won’t have to worry about this one falling off! This bracelet can definitely be worn for casual or formal situations, and while it is bigger and chunkier, it is simple and plain enough to be worn with other stacking bracelets.

Because this bracelet is memory wire and doesn’t have a size, it makes a perfect gift for anyone who loves easy, versatile jewelry. You can find more information about this bracelet in my Etsy shop!

Amber Colored Glass Bead Memory Wire Bracelet

Jewelry

This is a newer piece I have listed in my Etsy shop, and I think it is the perfect summer-to-fall piece.

Yellow, orange, brown and gold tones come together to create an overall amber color. This color arrangement reminds me of changing fall leaves. I know that’s been nearly a constant theme with me lately, but I am so ready for fall!

These beads are supported by gold plated memory wire. They are a bit chunkier than some of my other pieces, giving almost a cuff bracelet effect. The bracelet is big enough to be a statement piece, but not overwhelming. I love these glass beads because they look appropriate for both casual and more formal outfits.

Blue Glass Starfish Wire Wrapped Ring

Jewelry

This is a piece I made ages ago, and it’s certainly not my best work, but we all have to start somewhere, right? This is one of the first wire-wrapped rings I ever made, and I love the glass starfish bead.

The glass used for these starfish beads is so interesting. It has a little bit of a marbled effect. The particular bead shown is mostly blue, but has a bit of white and even some coppery red marbled throughout. Really unique and really pretty.

My biggest motivation for posting this ring I’m less than proud of is to post an update in a few months when I become a little more comfortable with wire wrapping, kind of like a before and after comparison.

Do you wire wrap? I’d love to hear your tips and tricks!

Tortoise Shell Colored Glass Bead Memory Wire Bracelet

Jewelry

As a recent transplant to the south, I CANNOT. WAIT. for fall this year. Since I’m not sure I’m going to get many crisp fall days, I’m placing a lot more emphasis on my clothing, jewelry and makeup to get me in the swing of the season. I wanted to carry that over to what I’m creating this time of year, and this was one of the first things to come out of the fall inspiration.

These glass beads are neat for a few reasons. First, they’re an interesting shape. Most beads I work with are symmetrical and these are more of a teardrop shape. Second, they’ve got some really neat two-tone coloring. One side of the bead is a subtly metallic bronze color while the other side is a smoky crystal color with a subtle mirrored gold finish over parts of this section. The effect is a little bit of shine and sparkle without TOO much, and the colors remind me of tortoise shell.

Memory wire bracelets are great because they’re just so easy. They don’t need to be clasped or adjusted, just put on and go. I’ve really fallen in love with this format because of the ease of wearing them, but also because of the multi-row effect memory wire creates. This bracelet is great to wear alone but is also simple enough to wear with other bracelets for an autumn arm party!
