- 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 are a couple of shots. Took way more work than I had first anticipated, but then it always does.
I think I counted about 19 different types and colors of beads in this piece.
1 squar-ish agate - not sure what it is, but's green with some light brownish and white markings; 1 luminescent oblong dichroic; 1 triangular shaped sea glass; Delicas in 3 different sizes; 15/0s and Charlotttes; 4mm cubes; seeds in size 11 and 8; a few fresh water potato pearls, and a couple of largish glass beads for accent.
Each cab is carefully beaded and backed with leather. Each one is embellished on top with beads, and copper wire on the sea glass.
It's mostly peyote, but some ladder and brick stitch as well as a few places of complete improvisation to make things fit.
Final length is just over 7" long and about 1-1/2" wide (in most places). Clasp is a copper toggle and loop.
If anyone knows what kind of agate the green stone is, please let me know. I imagine it's some sort of Jasper, but I'm not sure.
