About Me

Handmade beaded jewelry, the first piece made

I’m a programmer/techy type with my creative energies directed more toward coding and problem solving, but during a recent bout of unemployment, I went into a bead store and was struck by all of the colors and shapes. So I got a bunch of different beads, beading wire, clasps and whatnot and made a bracelet for myself. It wasn’t exactly what I wanted so I unstrung it and restrung it a little differently. I wore it for a while and some friends thought it was lovely. I made a few bracelets for friends and then reworked mine again.

About this time, I got some money for my birthday so I went to Fire Mountain Gems (I asked some friends for suggestions of where to shop) and bought a bunch of beads, better tools and some storage boxes. I kept making necklaces and bracelets because the patterns pleased my eyes.

Then some friends suggested I exhibit my work at the Arisia Art Show this coming convention. I’ve made more pieces since then and have been very happy with the reception of my work.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work. If you see anything you like but would prefer a variation on it, please let me know!

I’ve disabled comments on the site, but please feel free to contact me via trinketwerks at gmail dot com.

Niobe, a lampwork necklace

The deep blue of this pendant is a rich color so I made the necklace simple — gold beads separated by black square beads and iridescent beads. The necklace is finished with a lobster claw clasp and 4.5″ of chain. The length is adjustable between 16.5″ and 21″.
