Semi precious stones to UTEE

The necklace is made up of Picasso Jasper and wire work bead connectors with a nice chunky pendant of Jasper, and the earrings are Picasso Jasper ovals and wirework loops.

The bracelet is Memory wire with small glass beads threaded on with  beaded tassles at either end.

I decided to raid Dianne's stash of UTEE, and have a play with it. The dark pendants are a mixture of 4 different coloured UTEE, cut with metal clay cutters. and wire wrapped with enamelled copper wire. One of the pendants had a number of air bubbles near the surface but instead of heating to remove them I decided to leave them giving it a cratered appearance.

The gold coloured UTEE pendants are made with  original clear UTEE with gold and bronze perfect pearls powder added, and the second pendant and earrings have red and silver enamelled wire wrapped.
