Pair of Cherries Pendant – Wire Working Techniques

 

From Brenda:

[There are few motifs that say summer better than the cherry! ‘Course, being a former Wisconsinite, I’m partial to Door County for its cherries, just as Arizonans are partial to everything Prickly Pear! Enjoy this adorable and sparkly Preciosa crystal motif as a pendant (I’ve designed a built-in loop to hang it from a chain or satin cord) or simply as an element to brighten a shelf or niche!]

SnakeAlley Cuff – Wire Working Techniques

From Brenda:

I’m celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Steel Wire Jewelry: Stylish Designs, Simple Techniques, Artful Inspiration with all things Calderesque! (Has it really been a decade since my favorite published book hit the newsstands?)! And it just so happens that John Bead 12-gauge aluminum wire and Preciosa (is there any other) crystal make for a super-stunning nod toward the sculptor/jeweler in this SnakeAlley Cuff. What is the magic that Calder cast upon us? It’s difficult to pinpoint, and even more difficult to ignore. So, we we’ll embrace it and ensconce ourselves with it ad infinitum! Our gratitude and love to you, Alex!
