It’s been a while since I last posted so I thought I would pop in to share some of my latest creations that you can find at the 16th annual Angels Garden Arts Show this weekend.  I’ve been busy in the studio preparing for the fall show season and I have lots of new treasures to help you prepare for the holiday season ahead.  One thing you will see a lot of in my fall designs is beautiful, natural leather!  I have really enjoyed working in this medium and you’ll be seeing a lot more of it from me in the year ahead.  Here’s my first leather and pearl bracelet, which I call my cowgirl wrist-wrap!

Following that inspiration, more leather and pearl bracelets sprang from my workbench!  It was almost impossible to stop myself!

I became obsessed with the soft, supple leather and the sensual feel of the pearls.  Pearls warm to your own skin temperature as you work with or wear them.  They are absolutely the most sensual of all natural beads.

And still more leather and pearls poured from me as I slaved over my bench in August.  It was a lusty summer.  I procduced simple, no fuss leather and pearl bracelets;

Matching bracelet and earrings sets;

Leather and pearl earrings that did or did not match anything at all!

This was my favorite pair of leather and pearl earrings

I combined leather and pearls with fossils such as ammolite to create a lovely necklace;

And Crinoid fossil too!

I combined leather and pearl with some of my favorite metals, such as beautiful rosy bronze;

But don’t fret!  Wire wrap still remains my first love and I’ve created plenty of new items in my preferred medium as well.  There are hoop earrings;

And dangle earrings;

My favorite earring and cuff design ‘Solitude’ which is always a best seller;

Motivated by my featured artists gallery show entitiled ‘Jazzed: An Artistic Showing of Jewelry I created a few pieces with musical themes;

Beautiful green turquoise and oxidized copper are always a winning combination;

Amazing fiery labradorite herringbone earrings;

I’ve enjoyed experimenting with the ancient viking knit weave, and in this case even stuffed it with beads to match the amazing turquoise focal!  I have to say, it’ looks even better since I antiqued the bronze.

There is so much more than I haven’t even begun to photograph yet!  I have been and will be creating furiously at the bench to create wonderful new treasures to share with you.  Please come out and see me.  You know I am always happy to see a friendly face in the crowd!  Mention this blogpost and get 10% off of any purchase (not good on special BOGO offers).  I hope to see you there!

    • Thanks Sue! 🙂 I’ve been having great fun getting myself ready for the show. I’ve been so busy! I am also currently exhibiting in a featured artist show at the gallery and so I had to have lots of extra jewels for display there – in addition to getting ready for two shows back to back starting this weekend. I’ve been running on ‘wide open’ and enjoying all of the creative energy that has been pouring from me. I work well under pressure! lol

  1. Delia,

    I love your designs! Pearls are my favorite and I’ve been playing with leather and other fibers all summer too, and find them so fun!

    I love the wire wrapped pendants you have in this post – they are amazing, as usual. Your design style is stunning and always an inspiration!

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Michelle,
      Thank you for you kind comments. I have to tell you, the admiration is totally mutual. I do love browsing your lovely work …. it’s been too long since I have visited your blog and seeing your post reminded me it was time. It is always a visual treat! I love your leather work – I really liked the one wrist wrap with the big bold skull! GREAT man jewelry – something I always struggle with. Your blog is so well done with so many artful pictures. I wish my blog was even half as wonderful and professional as yours! One day, I tell myself …. one day I will have the time – and focus (I say as my one year old tugs on my leg ‘hep me’) to really devote to it! 🙂
