Carnelian, Copper, Spirals and Links

Lately I find myself making simple links, jump rings, spirals and clasps whenever I feel a lack of inspiration. I find it an interesting and relaxing past time while I sit out my “funk”.Step pliers are an awesome invention, so are bail making pliers. I really like tools!

So as a result of this activity, I have made a collection of different sized little components to play with. Like tiny puzzle pieces, I shift them around to form patterns and add beads until the light blub
in my head turns on.

I’ve repeated this process often in earlier pieces and I’m usually happy with the results. They may not be examples of great wirework, but I do like the overall designs.

This is how I came to design this necklace.
