katerina_perez.... While in St Petersburg I popped in @monza_jewelry_boutique to take a look at the brands presented there. Here is a pair of #earrings from #VanDerBauwede @van_der_bauwede_geneve Monochrome colour combo, the contrast between sparkling diamonds and black lacquer and statement design.
I am often asked how to use jewelry wire scraps, and while playing with some large beads today (and using scrap wire to do so), this pendant idea emerged. This would be both a great sales item, as well as a gift idea for those who prefer a more contemporary design. From Dale "Cougar" Armstrong and Wire-Sculpture.com!
Delicate Heart-Shaped Dreamcatcher Necklace in Sterling Silver
This lovely heart-shaped dreamcatcher pendant features an impossibly delicate silver wire woven into an intricate web. Small silver beads shift playfully within the web as the pendant moves about. A delicate embossed feather dangles from the bottom, sending good dreams to you, while keeping bad dreams caught within the web.
This sublime and extraordinary Edwardian brooch (and pendant) is about as fine as they come. A magnificently crafted diamond flower basket overflows with a bouquet of gemmy multi-color gemstones while the fine calibre ruby basket handle is wrapped in flowing diamond ribbons and bows. A natural pearl and diamond drop completes this masterwork handcrafted in platinum over yellow gold, circa 1900. 2 1/2 inches high by 1 5/8 inches across.
Gold ship pendant, enamelled in white and green, the mother-of-pearl hull surmounted by three masts rigging and unfurled sails. On deck, guarded by cannons Venus is seated while her son Cupid, winged, stands behind her. A pearl hangs below the hull, as does the anchor. Suspension loop above. Second half of the 16th century.
