- I love to create one of a kind jewelry that is unique, different, and of course, beautiful. I work with several techniques and materials. I do wire wrapping, metal working, and beadweaving. Much of my work is for sale at my Etsy shop and my Zibbet shop (see link at the bottom of this profile.) You can also contact me directly. I have much more than is displayed in either shop. You can contact me through e-mail. I accept payment through PayPal. I'll also be happy to work with you on custom orders. Just tell me what you want and I'll try to accommodate. And thanks for looking! *Please note that these are my original designs and are copyrighted. Please do not copy my designs. Thank you for your artisic integrity and consideration. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ http://www.clairecreations.etsy.com http://www.zibbet.com/clairecreations

Here's a gourd with a beadwoven panel of a rainforest frog. The frog segment is stitched onto the gourd and has an added picot edge. The rim of the gourd is peyote stitching. trim beads are mother-of-pearl sticks and the one at the lower edge of the frog panel is carved bone. Gourd sits on a base of heavy paper coiling couched onto the bottom of the gourd. This piece has many, many, many hours of work in it.
