Caught on Instagram: Handcrafting the Details of New Art Jewelry Designs | Elysian Studios

I’ve been busy working in the studio on new art jewelry designs.  I’m going back to my first love with jewelry design:

attention to beautiful craftsmanship. 

 In my new jewelry pieces , you will see lots of wire wrapping, detailed beadwork, colorful gemstones and crystals, and handmade artisan beads and components.

Here’s a sneak peek behind the scenes in the studio:


Wire wrapped natural gemstone links create a colorful chain.


Colorful Czech crystals and elegant Vintaj brass bead caps hand knotted on Irish waxed linen cord. 


A handmade clasp of colorful Czech seed beads and a vintage wooden button finish a strand of hand knotted green Czech glass beads.


Multi-strand designs of rich color and texture, including handmade beads, such as this heart focal by Lipstick Ranch.


A handmade pewter pendant by Green Girl Studios, hangs from three knotted strands of colorful beads and mixed metals. 


All of my new designs are being prepared and photographed for my new website!

Stay tuned!

The new Keyhole Art Jewelry Collection will be revealed shortly!
