Herringbone is the theme of today - SOLD!  

Sunday, January 18, 2009

As I mentioned in my previous post about herringbone weave, this is the first jewelry piece I made this year, a bracelet for a colleague at work. Green cats-eye in herringbone weave with 0.6 and 1 mm sterling silver wire.

I also made this cute pair of herringbone earrings after watching a free video on youtube, created by Cynthia. It really inspired me to try them and I will do more of these.
Beads are dark blue goldstone (so dark that they could easily pass as black in the proper light), they are really beautiful, and so dainty. If you like shorter earrings, which sit just right in your ear, these are for you :)

I will add the pair to my Dawanda shop, but you can also buy them directly from here via Paypal (with free shipping).

I had people sending me email asking me how much does xyz cost in $US, so I will display from now on both prices, in Euros and in $US. You can click on whichever button you prefer to buy it, depending on your location.

    I really have to try this weave, but have to look for the right wire gauge. The ones I have, are too thick or too thin. Thanks fot the tutorials, too!

    The wire gauges I used for the bracelet are 1mm (18ga?) for the base and 0.6mm for the wrapping. For the earrings I used 0.8mm (half hard because they were directly part of the earrings/earwire, which means the wire needs to go easily through your ear holes) and the wrapping wire was 0.4, to give it this dainty look.
    Thanks both for liking them :)
