wire weaving and my hand cut stones

A big apology for the delay in updating this site.   I have been camping in the mountains of Idaho with little internet service.  Thank you so much for your patience!  If there is a necklace that you want to see more pictures of, or want to order just email me a petalsoftjewelry@willden.org.  Make sure you put TWO L’s in willden!  I can mail these necklaces anywhere in the United States for only $3 additional charge.

In February of 2017 I joined a rock and mineral club and learned how to cut and grind and polish rocks into beautiful cabs.   I will make note of the different pendants that I did the lapidary on.   Then in May I learned how to do wire weaving.  I have been wire wrapping for a couple of years now and with this I am able to move my jewelry to a higher level.   A few of the necklace sets will state that there is a decreased price due to the fact that this was my first or second try and though the piece is still gorgeous, it is not as professionally finished as I would like it to be.

All of the earrings that come with the necklaces are hypoallergenic.   I use top quality materials in all that I do and I offer a 100% guarantee that you will be happy with your jewelry that I create.   I do not use real silver or real gold as that would push the prices up way too high for my clientele.   I am custom creating one of a kind necklace sets at the lowest price that I can.   I have tried to make my jewelry so that I can sell it for $20 a set but I am finding that the increased amount of wire used in the wire weaving and the extra hour or two it takes to create I have been forced to push my prices up a little bit.   You will note two necklaces that are basically the same size will vary in price from $2-5.00.  This is due to the higher cost of the stone itself or additonal amounts of wire.

Red Copralite wrapped in antique copper wire. This gorgeous pendant is strung on a 18 inch chain and has matching earrings with hypoallergenic wires.
I cut the stone, ground the shaped and polished it into a cabochon before wire weaving the piece.
Definitely one of a kind
!!
$25.00
Did you know that copralite is petrified dinosaur droppings!!! I have seen it in shades of tan to browns to reds!
Layered Wire Weave with Magnalite Stone. This gorgeous piece has five different types of wire weaving in it. I started with a medium sized Magnalite cabochon which is manmade turquoise. I took SIX copper toned wires and wove a beautiful pyramid design with a thin antique copper toned wire and placed it around the cab. Then I did weave with two wires, then three wires and ended the design around the stone with wire coiling. Then, finally, I wove the bail with six wires again. I have it hanging on a copper toned chain that is 17 inches in length and it closes with a toggle and bolt closure. I can make the chain length any size you would like. The earrings are matching swarovski crystals with cute copper butterflies in the center. I am selling this piece for $28.00 due to the cost of the extra wire in the design.
Black Onyx Cabochon wrapped in a silver tone 5 wire braid. The cab is a 30x20mm sized stone and I wrapped it in nontarnishing silvertone wrapping wire. The chain can be cut to your desired length. The matching earrings are hypoallergenic. Just $20.00 because this was my first try at braiding!

Picasso jasper…I cut and ground and polished this 1 1/2″ x 1′ stone – it is a softer stone and therefore doesn’t polish to a high sheen like many of the others I have made but instead you have a soft matte finish.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my creations.   Remember, they are CUSTOM jewelry…if you want the chain to be longer or shorter I can do that for you.   A lot of these sets TELL you that there are matching earrings but I need to take pictures of them AND the earrings I have created to go with them, however they are 350 miles away from me right now so until I can get together with the actual sets, I can’t update the pictures.  After I take the pictures however, it may take till the end of June before I can update these pages due to poor internet.  However, if there is a pendant you like and you want to see the earrings I CAN send an email with the picture.  That is able to be transmitted.

Just email me at petalsoftjewelry@willden.org and I will get back to you within a day or two!!   I will mail any necklace set within the United States for $3.00 and each additional set would cost $1 more for postage.   I take checks, cash, or paypal.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
