More Intricate Wire Weave Work!

Wow it's been a while since I last posted.
That shows you how busy I have been. I have just been teaching myself new wire weaving techniques and have made a few new pieces since I first posted. The passing of my Father and also greatest teacher has been rather hard on me.......and for a while I guess I just fell in a hole. I felt a lot better after I had made a part of my new website in his honor, dedicated it to him.. If you interested you can visit my website at and check it out. Anyway it just makes me feel closer to him, because I feel that the tools and gemstones he left me were his and that he bought them for a reason at the time of purchase. It just gives me great honor to put his ideas to work in my father admired my work and always mentioned to me that he wanted to be my apprentice......LOL. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, because my father was partly one of the 10 greatest jewelry designer in the world. 
As I have already mentioned I have been busy so here are my new designs at Designer Jewelry by LB. First of something simple a Sodalite gemstone donut with a wire weave loop!~ The second one has is a
Hand Crafted Four Wire Western Style Weave Green Sardonyx Agate Rectangle Pendand is available on the new website
The third one is a sterling silver cross pendant with white Swarovski Crystal Pearls and was a custom design order. I also made another cross pendant in copper with turquoise jasper beads. Both crosses are large and measure 3 1/2 inches 2 1/2 inches.
I have also made two wire weave bangles. One in three type of metals, in silver copper brass. And then second one is also copper but with interwoven beadwork. I hope you will visit Designer Jewelry by LB
for more details on all pieces.

In Memory of my Father

Taken from my Wesite at
In Memory of my Father 
Rudolf Joos Goldsmith/Jewelry Designer
My father, Rudolf Joos, past away from Liver Cancer on March 16th 2014. He was almost 82 years old. I would like to dedicate this section of my website to him. He was in  part one of the ten greatest jewelry designers in the world. He was not only  my father, but also my  greatest teacher during my 3 1/2 years apprenticeship in his company. From him I have not only learned the trade of goldsmithing /jewelry designer and fine craftsmanship, but also inherited the art to express uniqueness in  design and to stand out as a fellow jewelry designer. The one of a kind creations you see here on this page are made from gemstones my father left me. All Items posted are for sale. I know it would have made him proud, because he admired my work, creativity and unique designs.
