YOJ 2014 - Week 2 and 3  

Monday, January 20, 2014

Since I jumped in again in the Year of Jewelry project, I've started making a new jewelry piece every week. Here are my entries for week 2 and 3.

Week 2: It's golden

This is a pendant I made loosely based on a free tutorial by Angelina Krell, it's quite tiny. I like how the copper shimmers against the blue background.



Week 3: Circular logic

Well, my latest piece certainly matches the theme of the week, it's all circular up and down and middle too. It's made from the latest wire wrapping book that I bought at Amazon (was published in 2013) by Kaska Fior called Weaving Freeform Wire Jewelry. Love it so far, it really has some cool modern designs that I just have to make!





And since I mentioned the wire wrapping book that I bought which I used to make this second piece , here is the cover. I can't wait to make the bracelet shown there, it's amazing!

Camelot Chain Maille Necklace  

Thursday, January 2, 2014

Here is my first work in 2014 (actually started the last few days of 2013, but finished it just now), a copper and bronze necklace in Camelot chain maille weave, which is basically starting from the helm chain, going through Celtic Vision and with a few extra rings, turning into Camelot, a weave originally created by PrairieGal.

It's quite a heavy necklace, but it sits wonderfully on the neck. The larger rings are bronze, and the smaller ones copper. All rings handcut with a jewelry saw (that partially why it took so long to made this necklace).

Here are a few photos of it.
