Hot Pink Dragon Veins

NOW SOLD!!!    Hot Pink Dragon Veins 40 x 30 mm cabochon (polished stone with flat back) wrapped in High Quality non-tarnishing silver tone wire wrap hanging on a sterling silver plated chain  $20

Soft Pink Crystals

Soft Pink Crystal stone – this pale pink crystal sparkles in the light as the facets catch the light.  I have wrapped the 1 inch by 1 inch stone with non tarnishing silver wrapping wire and it hangs on an 18 inch long Sterling Silver Plated chain that closes with a strong magnet for easy on and off.  The finished pendant measures 2 1/2 from the top of the loop to the bottom of the dangling chain.   There are matching earrings with this set made up of pale pink Swarovski crystals, mini silver tone butterflies and more of the mini chain dangles, all on hypoallergenic earring wires.  $25.00 for the complete set

Green Crystals

Another stone made up of faceted crystals that have been dyed a lovely pale malachite colored green.  This time I wrapped it in gold tone non tarnishing wrapping wire.  It is a larger stone than the last one, with the finished pendant measuring almost 3 inches in length and 1 1/4 inch wide and it is very striking.   It hangs off of an 18 inch long 14k gold plated chain with a magnet closure.   Matching earrings are made up of 4mm and 6mm Swarovski crystals on hypoallergenic ear wires.  Because of the cost of the stone and the higher than normal costs in wrapping it I need to charge $30 for this set.

delicate metal

NOW SOLD!!!     I call this pendant “Delicate Metals” – it is not stone but rather a lovely oval that I fell in love with at Michaels.   I wrapped it in silver wire and hung on an 18 inch sterling silver plate chain that closes with a strong magnet.   This necklace also comes with a pair of matching earrings – My camera simply wouldn’t focus tonight so I will have to attempt to get a better picture of them another day.   The set sells for $22.00

Ruffle edged Brazilian Agate

Ruffle edged Brazilian Agate – This lovely little stone measures about 1 3/8″ x 7/8″.  Brazilian deposits produces agates which normally appear grey.  Only when dyed do they obtain their beautiful coloring.   AS you can see this one is striated with browns ranging in colors from dark browns to tans to almost white.   I wrapped it in silver and the finished pendant is approximately 2 3/8″ long.  It comes with a sterling silver plated chain (18 inches long) with a magnet closure.   $20.00

dendrite

This pendant is no longer available.   It was awarded to one of the three winners of my “Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday Contest”!

This Dendrite stone is stunning.   It came all the way from India.   As you can see, the white and black markings on the left turn to a dark cloudy gray, with black lightening strikes out past the middle.   The right side of the stone ranges from white to grey down its edge.  I have wrapped it in my usual high quality non-tarnishing silver tone wrapping wire and hung the finished pendant (just a little over 2 inches in length) on a sterling silver plated chain.   $22.00

lavender-sheen

Metallic Haze   I made a necklace with these 1 1/4  inch diameter beads a couple of years ago and this was just an extra bead that had been left over.   It is manmade, plastic in fact.   But it wrapped beautifully and the colors range from lavenders to soft turquoises…I wrapped it in my top quality silver toned wire wrap and hung the finished 2 1/4 ” pendant off a sterling silver plated 18 inch chain that closes with a magnet closure.   The necklace even comes with matching earrings  – simple one inch drops made up of swarovski crystals and Chinese crystals that match the colors in the bead.  Hypoallergenic of course.   Only $20 for the set.

tree

This Tree of Life is wrapped on to a grey and green toned agate – I attempted to wrap it in two tones hoping that it would create more depth to the tree.   As I am still learning how to make this style I am offering THIS pendant for just the cost of the materials  $11.   Grab it before its too late!!

I believe this is a manmade stone...artifically created crystals although I cannot remember what it is called.

Fall Away! 2016

A BIG SHOUTOUT  to my beautiful and talented daughter Mauri Joensen….She just updated the pictures on my website!!   She is the one that created it and hosts it with her husband Ragnar!!! Mauri surprised me with my very own website for Mother’s Day 2015 and I’ve loved it.    She is a talented web designer PLUS she’s also been busy today preparing three sheepskins to cure!   Ragnar and his dad butchered the sheep today and she has three of them salted down (evidently the first steps in curing the skins)   She surprised me with my very own Faroe Island sheepskin this last Christmas.   A beautiful white longhaired sheepskin that I use for a throw on my couch…it’s wonderfully soft and warm!   Just a thought Mauri, but I hope you are able to make one for Jerod (her oldest son) – – I didn’t think I was going to get mine back from him this summer!! ;-D

I  spent several hours working on this post just to have it disappear – luckily I only lost about 1 hours worth of work.   So I  published this post rather than saving it in draft format.  There are several necklaces that have very little information in them….more will be added as I redo what was lost.  Thanks!

All of my jewelry is hand made by me!!   I search for beautiful stones or beads and then pick out the wire that looks best with it.   I never make the same necklace twice – in fact I don’t think that I would be able to copy a pendant if I tried! I also do custom orders also – if you have a lovely stone, or coin or shell that you would like to have wire wrapped I would be glad to wrap it for you – usually for $10 to $15 for each

Also, if you see an item that you like, but would rather have a longer (or shorter) chain just message me at susan@willden.org  Or if you can’t handle the magnet closures that I so love (because I can put them on and take them off easily) then email me and let me know and I can give you some alternative choices.

 

More Wirewraps

Cameo Jasper wrapped in gold

This is a 30×20 mm mini cabochon that I have wrapped in non tarnishing goldwire.  $20.00

Oversized Geoge

This beautiful geode stone sparkles in light with its natural crystals– it ranges in colors from gray to mahogany to a natural quartz crystal.  Although the stone is 2 1/2 in length it is not too heavy, but rather a very comfortable weight for a necklace.  I have wrapped the stone in antique copper non-tarnishing wire and it hangs on a matching chain – 24″ long.    $20.00

tricolor

This triple toned agate of black, white and brown,  is wrapped in non tarnishing silver tone wire wrap.  The mini cabochon is 20 x 30 mm in size and the finished pendant is approximately 2 1/2 in length.  Sterling silver 18 inch chain that closes with a magnet for easy on and off.  $20.00

Pink Agate

This gorgeous pink lacy agate is about 32 x 18 mm in size and I have wrapped it in silver toned wire wrap– The finished pendant is approximately 2 1/2 inches in length   Only $18.00

gray faceted crystal

This cute 1  1/8 inch x 5/8 inch gray plastic bead was one I purchased for another necklace some time ago.    I normally wrap stone cabochons but I decided this would look lovely wrapped in silver.  It is a dark gray crystal and I have it hanging from a sterling silver chain – still only $18.00

blue sea sediment llThis beautiful blue sea sediment cabochon turned out magnificently, wrapped in silver wire wrap – the stone is approximately 2 inches high by 2 inches wide at its widest point.   I have paired it with an 18 in sterling silver plated chain (with magnet closure).   $20.00 for the necklace and matching swarovski crystal drop earrings (shown)

It’s Summer NOW!!

I just got back from my biannual family reunion in mid June, where I always take my jewelry and let my cousins buy whatever they like at cost.  (they like that!)  So that means, my cupboards are kind of bare.  However, I have added couple of new necklaces plus a couple that I re-did the wiring and like a lot better now.  Now, on the first of July I have added even more!   Enjoy!

golden sheen obsidian

Golden Sheen Obsidian. This is the only wrapable Golden Sheen Obsidian Stone that I found at the Obsidian pits west of Kanosh Utah a couple of weeks ago. In the sun the pattern glows a beautiful golden against the black background. I have wrapped the stone in gold nontarnishing 21 gauge wire wrap and strung it on a simple gold chain 18 inches in length with a gold magnet clasp. The stone itself measures about 1 3/4 inches x 1/2 inch and the finished pendant measures about 2 5/8 inches long. One of a kind for sure. $15.00

 

 

pink agate 1

SOLD!!  Pink Agate Cabochon:   This gorgeous stone is a pink agate…It is the full size 30 x 40 cc which equals about an inch and three-quarters by 1 and 3/4 wide.

With matching earrings not shown, made of a single dangle of varied pink 6mm Swarovski crystals this set will sell for $25.00

 

iron pyrite 3

Iron Pyrite Cube – Did you know that iron pyrite grows in the rock as a cube or rectangle!! The back view of the iron pyrite shows an interesting occlusion so I wrapped it so that it could be worn either direction – front or back

iron pyrite 2

The 21 gauge nontarnishing golden wire that I wrapped it in is called Champagne gold, it is a softer gold that matches the color of the iron pyrite perfectly. I added the magnet closure for easy on and off. $20.00

tusher jasper 1

SOLD!! – Tushar Mountain Jasper #1

With a husband that grew up in Beaver Utah, and spent his summers roaming the Tushar mountains just East of Beaver we were excited to see that they had their own Jaspar!

 This stone is wrapped in a soft rose gold wire wrap that pulls out the colors in the stone.  I am going to have to work harder to get a good picture of the soft pinks and mauves that are natural in this piece of polished rock.  It is so beautiful.   Check back in a couple of days to see if I have updated the picture.

Also I am excited to say that there will be several more Tushar jasper necklaces available as I wrap them – they go from warm peach tones to grays and whites.

 This necklace will sell for $15 with a shaded copper colored  chain

Australian mookaite

This is a one of a kind necklace.

This stone is an Australian Mookaite  (FROM AUSTRALIA EVEN!) I wrapped it in antique bronze with a matching chain – 18 inches in length (with a magnet closure).

The mookaite itself is about 1 inch x 3/4 inch at the widest part at the bottom of the stone. The whole pendant is just barely over 1 1/2 inches in height.  $18.00

Vintag’ Leaf

About three years ago I discovered a fun new form of jewelry design called Vintag’ painting.  I would take a plain metal pendant and paint it with special metal paints then bake them, then put a finish coat on and bake it again and then put a sparkle coat on and bake it again and then the final finish coat and the final ‘bake’.   I did so many of them I gave my self tendonitis so I had to stop.   I pulled out a few of my blank pendants and painted them this week – if I do just a few, it doesn’t hurt!   This beautiful leaf is approximately 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and hangs from a double chain of copper and bronze with a magnet closure.   $12.00
