|Wearable Art In Wool & Silk By Cynthia Soboti
|This necklace set is made with copper, black crystals, glass beads, black
silk and wire. The technique I used is to load beads onto a wire and then
crochet the design of the earrings adding crystals as I proceed. The copper
flower is made with sheet copper that I pound into the design I want. The
design is completed by threading onyx beads on to a wire and manulipating
with copper until I get the design I am looking for. Black silk chiffon is then
threaded through the design to soften the look. OOAK!
|This necklace is made using repousse
technique where sheet copper is cut
then pounded to create the
background design-holes are punched
in the copper and beads are threaded
on copper wire through the holes-the
wire is coiled and beads are added to
the wire to form the necklace with a
button snap closure. The focal bead is
emerald green glass faceted and wire
wrapped with copper wire. This is a
one of a kind piece.
|The focal piece of this necklace is created by wire wrapping
turquoise glass cabochons, glass daggers and dark blue seed
beads to form a flower shape-then shades of blue beads are
threaded on a soft wire and the necklace part is crochet and
finished with a magnetic ball clasp. OOAK!
|This necklace set is created by loading hot pink
and peach seed beads onto bronze wire and then
crocheting the design-the flowers are created in the
same manner and it is finished with a toggle clasp.
|These bracelets are made by loading various kinds of beads and pearls onto wire
and then wrapping it around a thicker gauge wire to hold the form- all have
