As she does every so often, elisem is having a sale on the bead-and-bent-wire jewelry that she makes. (And gives names to. The names are an important part.) And, as usual, she's encouraging people to spread the word, so I'm writing this post. If you're not familiar with her work, go and look -- it's really quite gorgeous work. And if you are familiar with her work, you've probably already stopped reading and followed the sale link! Here, I'll pick out a few examples I like that show the range of her things:
Promise of Return. She also does pendants, which are often more of the sculptural wirework around a single bead or stone or a pairing. Again, this one is one of my favorites with how the wire tangles around the key, and the colors of the wire and key and stone and its inclusions all work together.
Tinkerbelle Explains Gravity. There are simpler pendants, too, that are more just about the beads. This one's quite pretty, and I like the name.
Tigers of the Deep. I can't resist including this one as well. It's another pendant with wirework, but with "gold-filled" wire this time.
My Tidepool Beloved. In a different genre, there are necklaces, which are much larger collections of beads on silver-wire links.
Unnamed (blue and silver). And then there are the "necklace/crowns", which are all sculptural wire making a ring and designed to be worn as necklaces, but many of them also work well as circlets on top of the head too.
And that's just a selection and leaving out some of the other whole categories of things that aren't up yet. I am, as can probably be guessed from the length of this entry, quite fond of her stuff.
