New Ancient Things

Just a quick post about a couple of new necklaces I made.  I need to make some samples of jewlery with my new beads so I can wear and display them at the Berks Bead Bazaar.
So I couldn't wait another minute to make some jewelry with these trilobite pendants.  I will only have a few at the show, and each one is totally unique. 
First I made this one for a display will be for sale.  I LOVED how deep and orange the bronze piece got!!!
It features a trilobite, a spiral connector and a rolled bronze center drilled stick bead- all will be for sale at Berks.  It also has stick pearls, an antique brass bell, a genuine ammonite fossil, a connector by Starry Road Studio in a great rusty colo, amber and turquoise.

So, I usually make myself something to wear at the show, and I loved how this first piece turned out so.  So I made one for myself- but a bit chunkier, since that is how I roll.
I will probably never take it off.  It has a large trilobite, rolled beads, turquoise donuts, labradorite chunk, ammonite fossil, brass bell, more tuquoise, rutilated quartz, a raku bead, agate, and recycled sari silk mixed with a great strand from Marsha Neal Studio.

See, it's totally my style!  I love how ancient everything is on them, even though they are new, they feel like they have thousands of years built into them.
Now I am off to finish an article and sand and seal some more beads.
Happy Friday Everyone!!!


  1. WoW Stacie! Both necklaces are gorgeous! I'm sure that the one you will have on display will fly out of there, good luck with the show!

  2. I love them both! The first is more colorful than I am used to seeing you do and you knocked it out of the park! but I think the second one is my favorite. LOVE the pumpkin colored silk with it and the little brass bell is genius! I love how you used the donut in the focal portion--it gives me ideas for my stone donut collection!

  3. These wearable art pieces are wonderful, and I love your beads too. They do have an ancient and shamanic feel to them. Sure to be a hit!
