Time for my jewels

November and December were such busy months for me that I did not have time for my jewelry making. So now that the Christmas hassle has calmed down I have finally had time.

I made my husband carry a load of jewelry material over to my grandparents house where we spent our Christmas at. I’ve basically just sat on the ground every evening concentrating on this hobby of mine.

Getting to the point. I found a great book on woven wire jewelry over a year ago. I straight away created two bracelets on which I used 0.4 mm sterling silver wire. Love love love the outcome. Takes a bit of time but when you catch on to the technique, it’s great.

The first bracelet I decided to do some soldering on to get the silver beads stuck to the ends. Pretty happy with this first try but there’s always room for perfecting your art right? 🙂

I decided to turn to my old friend, the super glue (sorry to admit this to all the soldering fanatics out there)! I combined some leather cord and the silver and it just came out beautiful. Leather and silver always look good together.

This is turning out to be my favorite style right now. What do you think? I’ve got some other jewelry pieces coming up soon as well so come back soon!

p.s. I, after a looong ponder, decided to create once again a Flickr account. You can find it on the sidebar. There you can find all the pictures I have in this blog.
