Stacked Woven Bezel, Multi-Stone Pendant Workshop
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
― Martha Graham
Known as the Roman Goddess of gaiety, gladness and prosperity, Laetitia was the inspiration for this wire wrapped copper creation. A large rhyolite rests on top, with beautiful earthy tones. Rhyolite has been associated with healing emotion wounds, along with carnelian (shown beneath the rhyolite), which is a stone of energy and happiness. The sunstone also has a folklore that supports happiness and prosperity. These three magical pieces of nature come together in a unique wire wrapped setting to create the Laetitia pendant. A small carnelian and pearl dangle deliciously from the bottom. Pendant measures 6cm in length (without the dangles) and will arrive on a 20" copper ball chain.
Named Hecate at the Cauldron, this wire wrap copper pendant features a beautiful purple lepidolite stone, topped with the mirror finish of a hematite, representing mystery and the reflection of self. Hecate is the goddess of crossroads and the lamp-bearer and is a symbol which represents finding your way home through the dark. She is a personal favorite for me to pay homage to. This pendant measures 6.3cm in length and has a solid textured copper back. Pendant will arrive with a 20" copper ball chain.
I love incorporating negative space into designs that utilize a heavy degree of layering. Each weave and coil is constructed by hand and layered against and on top of one another in a smoothly curving design, with small swirling accents to further embody a sense of movement. This copper wire wrap pendant measures 6cm in length and will arrive with a 20" copper ball chain.
Measuring 5.5cm in length, this wire wrap copper pendant features three oval goldstones, showcasing its shimmer and warmth amidst a nest of copper wire. The color of the metal acts as a nice compliment to that of the stones, creating a perfect combination for fall (or for fall lovers who want to carry a bit the season year round). These stones are surrounded by layers of hand wrapped, woven and coiled copper wire, in a uniquely flowing design. This pendant will arrive with a 20" copper ball chain.
Measuring 4.3cm in length, this wire wrap copper pendant features an earthy pink stone (unknown type), resting inside a symmetric design of coils and weaves, delicately and deliberately laid to create a unique finished look. This pendant will arrive with a 20" copper ball chain.

Rhyolite is the focal in this wire wrap copper pendant, with it's beautiful earthy tones of browns, greens and yellows. A bright orange carnelian adds further warmth to the colors of the central stone as well as the copper wire.

A soft sky blue amazonite stone rests as the iris in this unique wire wrap copper eye pendant. The All Seeing Eye is a talisman of protection and a powerful symbol of insight and wisdom. This symbol was created using waves and spirals of coils and weaves, layered intricately around the central stone, with negative space in the center as a portal through which insight and clarity might be gained. This pendant measures 5cm in length and will arrive with a 20" copper ball chain.
Focused only on the power of movement, this wire wrap copper pendant features no stone or bead accessories to detract from the flow of each weave and coil. These wires were laid by hand, in a uniquely, smoothly curving fashion, and layered for texture and depth.

I often use meditation as a method of release negativity, acknowledging and healing my shadow self, and moving forward with strength, and use cave imagery in these meditations to represent the subconscious. I felt Ocean Jasper, pictured here with vibrant earthy tones, as a stone thought to uplift the spirit, was a wonderful way to fill the spirit within the "cavern" of the wire. The copper wire is hand woven and layered in softly flowing lines, like the undulating movement of thought. This wire wrap copper pendant measures 5.2cm in length and will arrive with a 20" copper ball chain.
Carnelian is now the official Nicole Hanna Jewelry stone of 2020, as it will continue to feature regularly in my work. I've always had an affinity for this stone, as one that promotes for me a sense of happiness and energy. Here, the single rich burnt orange stone is set at the base of a mass of curling copper wires. This wire wrap copper pendant measures 5.5cm in length and features layer upon layer of movement and flow, to further encourage the idea of energy. Pendant will arrive with a 20" copper ball chain.
Measuring a delicate 6cm in length, this wire wrap copper pendant is constructed from a perfect amount of detailed weaves, layered in swirling waves, yet in a compact design for those who prefer a smaller statement piece.
