About Me

chattanooga, Tennessee, United States
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

almost done


Still working with my jumble beads. Worked on that silly bracelet most of the day again today -- took time out to try to make a watchband -- stringing on wire, but my crimps didn't hold and the whole thing fell apart. More wasted hours!
Took time out to eat and rest a bit, but then the beads called to me again.
I have most of the bracelet done - haven't taken any pics yet. I have the length where I want it and have added a copper toggle clasp. -- Of course, the first time I did it, I had the loop portion upside down -- there is an up and down side to this one, so had to take that off and do it again, but got it done.
Now I have to go back an do something to the edge and even things out a bit -- and maybe add a few accents to cover little spaces or balance things out. Like I said, projects like this take me forever.

I thought freeform didn't have to be even. LOL Just joking. Can't wait to see the finished bracelet.

Thanks for the comments and for looking.
Marilyn, well as you'll see when I post the finished pictures, it is NOT even, but I did have to balance it a bit.
