White Snow Bangle  

Friday, December 31, 2010

I used a tutorial from Jewelry Lessons to create this sterling silver bangle. While it took me a lot of time to do it, I found it quite easy and fun. Due to the very repetitive nature of the project, I found myself soon in a calm and relaxed mood. Before I knew it (a few hours later), the bangle was done. I think I will do another one, wider this time and with thicker wire. This was done with 18ga as base and 26 gauge as wrapping. Not sure I like the clasp, the jury is still out on that part... I'm thinking if I do one much thicker, I might not need a clasp at all...

Happy New Year everyone!

Black and white bracelet  

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

While looking over my jewelry I realized that I don't have many pieces with classic colors, like black and white, so I made this quick, easy and fun bracelet. Goldstone beads - not exactly black, but very dark blue, and milk opal white beads. The fun elephant clasp is there to break a bit the classic style of the design.

Healing Pendant  

I mentioned in my previous post about the Yellow Amphora that I worked on two similar pendants both in the shape of an amphora. Here is the second one. The picture is not high quality, unfortunately just as I didn't have time these days to be busy with jewelry, I also didn't have time to learn photography and editing (one of the things I will include in my New Year's resolution), but the pendant is really great.

I used a quartz crystal in the middle - also called a healing point, or a crystal point. I love these crystal points as they promote healing and channel the positive energy to the wearer. I have actually a large crystal on my work desk in my office.

The Yellow Amphora  

Monday, December 6, 2010

I'm back after a few months of absense from wire wrapping. Sadly this is how is going to be for the next year or so. First of December I've celebrated one year since I stopped working for a boss, and started a venture on my own. Here is a blog where I'm keeping track of what I am up to since I fired my boss if you care to read :)
Until I have my earnings on auto-pilot, I need to focus most of my time on building up my business, so I don't really have much time just yet for making jewelry. But as time passes and my income increases, I will be devoting again more and more time to wrapping wire.

I've spent this weekend creating two pendant, both similar in structure however a bit different in execution. In this post I present the first one. It takes its inspiration from the Greek amphora.

The materials used are yellow jade and sterling silver. As usual the pictures are not so great...
