Some quick gifts and a finished project

So in my last post I showed photos of a work in progress:

Today I finished it off and am rather happy with the result πŸ™‚ Although one part of the ‘tooth’ pieces broke sadly in half, but epoxy glue fixed it, but it’s left a bit of a mess on the surface, i’ll have to see if i can lightly sand it off.

I'm quite please with this one :) quite a bit of weight to it though!

I also decided to make a pair of earrings and a pendant for my friend Natalie. Quick and simple, but I’m sure she’ll be happy with them πŸ™‚

Some recent items and a work in progress.

I find it strange sometimes when I find the time to be creative and create new items. These were created due to having a horrid bout of insomnia!

Really quite happy with a few of these. The agate slices are so simple and easy, I’ve a number of other coloured slices so think I’ll do some more. I did attempt to wrap one with a more elaborate wrapping, but I messed up the loop and just couldn’t get happy with it no matter what I tried so cut it all off sadly.

I also finally mastered the double slip knot for adjustable cord necklaces. Needed for a couple of current items i’ve been trying to figure out.

Something a little different

Today I visited the local sealife centre in Birmingham (UK).

Thought as I love such creatures I’d post a couple of pictures.

Such wonderful creatures are sharks and turtles. Certainly provided a few creative ideas πŸ™‚

Hopefully I’ll have more jewellery to share soon as been teaching myself to wire wrap agate slices, more a case of practicing than learning I guess really tho. So far results of first attempt look good to me. Which is great as I’ve a number of slices and tumbled stones to try wrapping πŸ™‚

Finally after the sealife centre I took the opportunity to stop by the jewellery quarter in Birmingham and picked up some new tools which will aid such efforts (my pliers had gotten rusty (weren’t designed for jewellery either) so some new ones in bargain bin was great!).

Till next time

Xx
