Necklace inspired by Firefly and Serenity in an Asian Steampunk Style

I always get excited when raw materials bought from me ends up in creative hands. It's a good feeling to see how other artists made use of the once lonely beads and turned them into a one of a kind jewelry piece.

Lisa of ElainaLouiseStudios is one talented artist. Who would have thought that a simple wire-wrapped Chinese character paper bead scroll could be transformed into a unique necklace that embodies both time and place influenced by the East.




The Chinese Paper Bead scrolls came from pages of a vintage Buddhist prayer pamphlets. I have loads of these and other Chinese newsprint published in the 1940’s- 1970’s.

Visit ElainaLouiseStudios .Their wide offerings of jewelries are inspired by antique industrial, steampunk and Victorian genres as well as fairies, mermaids and other mythical beings.Check Lisa's Treasuries too, she has an eye for perfect color combination and fun, lovely themes.

Thank you for featuring my necklace. It's something I've been playing around with for weeks and when your beads came in the mail it finally cemented the design.
