Double sided pendants



Facebook      Lori Finney-Bonial

$350.00   SOLD

This is a piece of landscape jasper that I drilled holes in
and then riveted small silver birds to the front of the stone. 
I hand cut the birds and textured them. It is hung from a 
curved pieces of tubing. There is a round textured wire
that is in between the piece and the tubing. On top of the tubing is a tube set 3mm fire citrine. I also set one on the other side 
because this pendant can be worn with birds showing or
the tree and roots showing. I also wanted it to look like there was
light shining through the leaves, so I drilled holes for small
silver wire to be set in those.

Sea shells


Have you ever noticed the beautiful textures sea shells have?

Maybe that's why people collect them when they go beach combing.

I am fascinated by the different textures that are seen in nature. In my jewelry I try to enhance the textures and colors of the object to make people see it in a different way. 

Did you see this piece of jewelry as a sea shell when you first look at it?

It is.

These are the new feather buttons that I have on my work bench. They will all become wrap bracelets. Choose one for own custom made bracelet.

Feather Button Wrap Bracelets

I have recently started making buttons with a feather under glass. The feathers are from my sister in laws parrots. They are from two African Grays and a Blue Headed Amazon parrot. I cut the circle from the feather and place it into the bezel I make out of sterling silver, then put the glass on top of it and push the bezel over the glass. These are five wraps. I will be making more but you can contact me to make a custom one for you.


These are some of the different buttons I make for my bracelets. They are textured and made out of sterling silver.



Burgundy leather cording with jasper beads in between the cording. Textured silver button for the clasp.


This is a cuff bracelet. It has African turquoise beads and sterling silver tube beads on the outside of the black leather cuff.


This bracelet is 8 in. with an adjustable cord that will enlarge it to 10 in. The center is made of tube bone beads on burgundy leather cording. on each side I alternated a pebble and then a knot to the end of the bracelet.

Sea Glass



This necklace is  made with real sea glass not tumbled. It is bezel set with a textured silver tube for the chain to go though. The chain is blackened and aqua Swarovski crystals on each side of the pendent. Hanging form the bottom is three decorative beads. Then hanging from those is a textured piece of silver with a piece of abalone riveted to it.  It is an 18" chain, The pendent hangs down 2" and is 1" wide.


Sterling silver box is 1 1/4th in. tall, 3/4 in. wide and 1/4 in, deep. The necklace it self is 3/4 in. taller including the top pebbles and silver strips.
I hand textured all the sides of the box to resemble water bubbles. The box is framed with twisted wire. Inside the box are pebbles and a piece of sea glass.


The hand cut bird and branches are riveted onto the sea glass. I had to drill holes into the sea glass to put the silver wires that were soldered on the back of the bird and branches. It is bezel set with silver wire and tubing at the top. The chain goes through the silver tubing.

Keum Boo


Keum-boo (also Kum-Boo or Kum-bu — Korean "attached gold") is an ancient Korean gilding technique used to apply thin sheets of gold to silver, to make silver-gilt. Traditionally, this technique is accomplished by first depleting the surface of sterling silver to bring up a thin layer of fine silver. 

 Here I melted silver into a ball , then hammered it flat and coined the edges. The center piece is a domed circle with the gold foil and a gold citrine tube set in the middle. I textured the large coined silver piece with a "pave' " tool and added the gold all around the edge. It hangs from a silver wire and a silver curved tube.




These earrings are made of sterling silver . They start as a long flat rectangle that is hammered to the fan shape. Then I put the 24 caret gold on the top. I used liver of sulfur for the patina.
