I spent the day googling lots of minimalist jewellery. I fell in love with the sleek and modern lines. Then I had a go at producing my own version of simple minimalist earrings. It’s a dramatic and delicate look, but so adult. They might help me to adult better.
I attempted my first ever broach this week. Partly because I was curious and partly because I am broke and mother’s day is still looming. This is intended for the mother in-law who likes cats. It’s definitely a cat. (Once it’s on the pin at the back will be hidden) I wanted to put some sparkle into it with topaz-coloured Swarovski crystals for his eyes and red coral beads for his collar. He also has a Swarovski crystal on his collar too: all cats need a little bling!
I realised that it will be Mother’s Day soon! Here is my first Mother’s Day idea for a pendent. I used spring pastel colours with 1.2mm silver plated wire. It sits on silver-grey silk cord.
I have a wedding I need to attend in the summer and for some reason my brain wandered to pearls and silver plated wire. I wanted something really elegant and simple, like pearls simply floating in the air by my ears. This is what I came up with. I hammered the wire flat at the base of the earring to give the pearls a floating effect. They just sit above the flat wire. They are so simple and delicate: I love them. To create a set I added a modern pearl necklace that fastens at the front by threading the end pearl through a silver hoop. I love the way they look like little handcuffs! (fifty shade-elk) A simplistic, dainty and extremely elegant design.
Um, then I just carried on making wire frames. I just couldn’t stop. Here are the rest of the wire frames I created this week. Like I said…It’s been mad.
