I really haven’t had a good chance to sit down and make jewelry but I’ve gotten a few bracelets done in January. There really isn’t a theme here so it really is random.
Cotton over memory wire
This is the first try so the outcome isn’t exactly what I am looking for but the basic idea worked. I twisted some 1.5 mm cotton wire of memory wire and then just added some swarovski crystals to it. I might want to use 2-4 mm cotton cord next time.
I’m quite bad with black but luckly I sometimes do have to since a customer asks. It is good to step out of your comfort zone. This bracelet turned out a bit more hard core than I had imaged. The reason for this seems to be the beads. that are quite large. At the same time this does not bother me because it is just another style for this weaved bracelet.
This bracelet is so different to the previous one. I used light blue faceted 6mm jade and a variety of different shaped ja size freshwater pearls. I also put clear swarovski crystals. I love the connector I bought a month back which is shaped like a number eight.
Leather meets metal
Stones aren’t always mandatory. This bracelet consists of chain, a large lock, metal beads and 3 mm leather.
I love this fox head charm. The bracelet itself is very simple but I think that it just works. Here I used 3mm leather cord as well.
Some craft and DIY coming up next. Have a great week!
