Isn't this fun? Carved by my best buddy Jessica Wiesel the last time she came to visit. It has a nice feel to it and seems pretty secure (they get tested, of course). I think it would make a fantastic bracelet clasp. It will be available in pewter.
Here's another design by Jessica Wiesel. This is my favorite of her's and I can't wait to use it in a piece with poppy colored beads! It will also be available in pewter.
My bird clasp came out nice, I thought. Its cast in shibuichi and the hooks and loops are in the back. It will be available in silver and shibuichi.
Pure magic! I'm in love!
Wow. I can't tell you how much I love these! I am so drawn to winged creatures and these are some of the prettiest - can't wait to see the finished results.
Love the little bird in the nest clasp!
Wow, absolutely beautiful work!!
Delightful! All of them! My favorite has to be the Poppy clasp. I can't wait til these are available!! Please let me know when they are obtainable by online folks like me. :)
These are fantastic! I am already designing in my head. Love your work!!!
Oh so beautiful! I just love the clasp with the bird in the nest. Would love to see the whole process--in person--from carving to the finishing polish.
Lovely! I hope you'll post pictures when you make the poppy necklace - I imagine it will be much more elegant than the one I have pictured in my head.
I love them all but especially the first one! Gorgeous and very creative!
I don't know if you can answer this here, but I was making the owl project from your book and could not find any small, smooth cabochons like the ones you use for the eyes. I used a Swarovski flatback but now the owl looks too "blingy."I did a ton of Googling and looking at my regular sites to no avail. Do you mind sharing a source? If not, I understand. Thanks!
I bought mine from Rio Grande Supply, but i think they are wholesale. I found this:
try googling garnet cabachon-its more specific.
Just so lovely!! All of them and I want the birds nest lol!
Lovely pieces -- especially that bird in the nest toggle. No idea what I'd do with it, but I just want it. Yet another thing to add to my long bead wishlists. :D
they are all really wonderful.
Thank you so much!
I will keep checking back to see when you post the bird clasps, love them!
She is so good in her craft. Those are lovely creations. I love the bird my favorite.
Gorgeous work! I love your flying bird clasp, Cynthia.
I love the bird nest clasp!
