Newest Creations

Well, I finally managed to get two new pairs of earrings done. I've a third pair waiting to be put in the tumbler this weekend so that they are nice and shiny.

One pair is in a pattern called Wiggly Chain, almost like Mobius Flower joined one to another but only using two rings for each section.

The other pair is the beautiful Byzantine pattern. This time I used tiny rings made from 20g sterling wire and they were a bit more difficult to to put together. Look fantastic though! I added a Swarovski pearl on the end and am quite happy with them.

Both can be found at my shop

Back At It

Well, it's been a while since I've posted on my blog. Had a stint in the hospital which drained every ounce of energy from me and I'm only now back at (almost) full strength. Which gave me the motivation to start making jumprings again. :-)

Finally hauled out the dremel and jumpring cutter which I purchased a few months ago. Have a new supply of sterling silver wire so I made up some coils and tried out the cutter. Wow! That is sooooo much faster than sawing through the rings. Takes seconds! I've got two sets of jumprings in the tumbler right now getting all nice and shiny. I plan on making up some earrings using one design I've done before and a new one that looks really fun. Will see how fun it actually is ;-) Both are chainmaille designs.

With Christmas coming up really quick I must get some new jewelry into my shop.

I did sell some necklaces and earrings in the past few weeks so have to increase the inventory again. Anybody need some lovely jewelry (jewellery) gifts for Christmas?!
