Zipper pulls

These are the latest zipper pulls I have finished. they will be offered on sale at the upcoming art club Oktoberfest here. I like the idea of fancy zipper pulls and it will be interesting to see how popular they are. I think these will look great on jackets and vests this Fall and Winter.

This is my latest creation, made up as I went along and without a tutorial. I started out using 12 g copper wire, which I hammered and fashioned into a textured free-form pendant. I then decided to use that as a frame for a jasper cabachon I had. I decided I liked it and made it into a necklace, matching the cab with some carnelian beads I had. I had a great time "designing" this.

Darlene's Druzey

Darlene was referred to me by a beading friend who does not do wire wrapping. Darlene had this stone and wanted it wrapped with silver wire to hang from her omega. She sent the omega and stone to me and this is what I did, pending her approval. I received the approval (she loves it!) and will send it today.

I don't like this photo as much as the one I sent her, but now cannot find that one so this is what I got before I sent the package to her. This angle makes it look sorta wonky, which it isn't.


Darlene called me today to let me know that she had received the pendant and necklace and was so very pleased, in her words "it is so much more than I expected!". How encouraging were those words to me!

I have started working on some free-form/my own design pendants using undrilled stones and cabachons, great fun and will start photographing them as I complete them.
