So will soft greys and turquoise, according to Christian Dior, but let's focus on one thing at a time - like this lovely pendant from Get Wired. I saw her work noodling around on Flickr while eating lunch this afternoon and am so impressed by the artistic way she shapes and molds the metal - so fluid and elegant, and very feminine. Schoolteacher and artist Rebecca has some beautiful work displayed both at her store and her Flickr stream that's worth looking at!
This fellow Pennsylvanian created the pendant with silver-coated copper wire and a very pretty pink and clear glass bead that she found at a bead store (judging by the beads she uses, it must be a magical bead store, let me tell you!). The pendant is a mere $12, quite a deal for such a truly lovely piece, and Rebecca provides a sheer ribbon necklace in your choice of colour with every pendant purchase.
But wait, there's more! (I couldn't resist.) Right now, Rebecca is having a "Yikes, I just bought a car!" sale, which means you benefit from Rebecca's new ride: $1 off $5-$9 goodies, $2 off $10-$14 goodies...basically, it's $1 off every four you spend! To top it off, she'll throw in a pair of earrings that compliment your jewelry for just five bucks. Whattadeal!
You'll find sterling silver, gemstones, bracelets, earrings, and other goodies at Get Wired, all of them worth your perusal. Her wire-wrapping work is truly among the most beautiful I've seen. Enjoy!
