New pendant necklaces

These pendant necklaces come from tutorials from Janice Berkebile and my favorite local instructor, Stacy Perry.
They are made by hand cutting strips of metal, then hand stamping with design stamps or texture hammers. You then wrap the strips around a focal bead and embellish. The possible designs are endless. I've made a few so far and will be doing a few more to have available at shows upcoming. Take a look at just a few.

This last doesn't have the wrapped strips, but I've hand stamped the design for the bead caps and spiral center. This gorgeous focal was made by lampwork artist, Moon Stumpp.
Stop back for more!
BTW: I should be adding a few things to my Etsy shop this week.
