Inseparable Pendant

Artist Statement: This pendant was created for The Wire Artisans Guild weely theme challenge of "Passion" chosen by SuzyQJewelry.

It's another New Zealand Maori inspired piece incorporating "koru" or swirls, in this case representing two soul mates in untouchable harmony.

This was a very intricate piece to construct. It's sterling silver with 2 stunning mystic topaz briolettes in glittering purple. It has been oxidised and polished.

The pendant measures 3.5cm round. The chain is 42cm long with a 5cm extender adorned with an amethyst briolette.

Amalfi Necklace

Artist Statement: The necklace is made entirely from Sterling Silver which I have blackened (oxidized) and polished myself.

The central circular swirl feature is forged from solid Sterling Silver which is handcoiled with more silver. Around the outer swirl is a parade of tiny faceted Iolite rondelles and the inner swirl is a fabulous array of beautiful blue gemstones in the form of Grey Mystic Quartz, Blue Flash Labradorite, London Blue Topaz, Swiss Topaz, Tanzanite, Blue Zircon and Kyanite.

Hanging from the central feature is an incredible and stunning 45 carat briolette of perfect Rock Crystal - this gemstone is truly breathtaking and against the oxidized silver and bright blues of the gems looks nothing short of spellbinding!

The long chain, from which this pendant hangs, is also entirely handcrafted by me from sterling silver and also more faceted globes of grey Mystic Quartz.

Pins, Bits and Bobs Pots

Artist Statement: This set of 2 sweet pots are a great way of storing away all tiny crafty bits & bobs, pins, buttons, sequins, tape measures, needles etc....

The pots measures approx 6.5cm diametre x 6.5cm in height or 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches. They are made out of plastic with alluminium screw lids and pretty knitted lid cosies. The side graphics read, Pretty Knitty Lady.

The flower has a rounded back that comes to a point so it doesn't sit flat. Hand wrapped to a string of glass pearls and crystals, and attached to natural brass cable chain. The necklace measures 16” long + the chain swoop below the beads, and the pendant measures 1 1/8" in diameter.

Whispering Pots

Artist Statement: This listing is for a set of 2 armpots that are interacting with each other. The dark-glazed one is whispering into the green one's "ear", and you can only imagine what they're saying! The green-glazed pot is 6 1/4" X 3 3/4" (15 cm X 9 1/2 cm) and the dark-glazed pot is 6 1/2" X 3" (17 cm X 7 cm). They are quite a lovely pair. This is one of my signature designs, an "armpot". I throw the vase on my wheel, and tweak it a bit before I handbuild and sculpt it's arms. The resulting figure and it's gesture are quite expressive; I love the reactions people have to these pots. All are signed and dated. I use local clay from Georgia called Lizella, and fire to cone 6 in an electric kiln.

Absinthe Soap

Artist Statement: The scent of this pale green soap is my take on an oft-interpreted blend.

Pattern: Rabbits

Artist Statement: The bunny is about 11 inches tall (including the ears), and the pattern includes instructions for the dress shown in the photo. It is beginner to intermediate level, with the more difficult parts being increasing and decreasing, picking up stitches, and sewing pieces together. The pattern is in a PDF file that I can email to you, so there is no shipping cost.

Pattern: Double Vision Rug

Artist Statement: Double Vision is a stunning afghan. It appears to have 55 different shades though it only uses 10 ordinary, easily available colours. The afghan you see in the photos was made in DK (Double Knitting) yarns. In theory, you can use any yarn of your choice but,in reality, yarns heavier than DK would make the afghan uncomfortably heavy. You could make a floor rug instead, if you wish to use heavier yarns.

Amoeba Ring

Amoeba Ring by whoozqueen

Artist Statement: (This item is not for sale.) I've been searching for a way to display these Fire Mountain beads for a long time, but never found the appropriate setting. They're a donut shaped, handblown bead, bigger on top than underneath. Best when clustered together or fixed in place. The other night when watching the latest Doctor Who episode, I finally was hit with inspiration - The Amoeba Ring! Each donut is tethered by a silver ring to the ring base itself. The piece moves with your movement, giving off a lovely tinkling noise. It feels smooth and warms up with your body.
