A Quick Preview Of Fine Jewellery Created This Week: Pearls, Labradorite and Sterling Silver.

Here is a quick look at some of these pieces I am working on. I will be posting them in my Etsy shop on Saturday 10th June 2017. They took a lot of time to create and are high quality pieces which cost a lot more in time and materials and so this is reflected in the prices I will be posting. If you wish me to create a custom order of something similar, then please feel free to email me or message me through Etsy or Facebook.

Check out these luxurious beauties. All either sterling silver, real natural silk, real AA quality gemstones and real quality pearls.

Polishing Up The Sterling Silver Range

After a few requests from friends and family, I decided to work on a range of quality sterling silver pieces. I am really excited by this range, and the results have been amazing so far. I have been, bending, wrapping, weaving, creating and polishing the sterling silver wire like crazy. It’s been hard work, sterling silver is delicate and easy to mark you need to be careful when using tools on it and polish it well. I have found that I am using my nylon coated pliers much more, to protect the beautiful wire and to ensure it stays shiny.

I have already had a few custom requests this week and was able to fulfil these requests.  Minimalist circle stud earrings, a birthday present for an 18th birthday June girl (pearl earrings and necklace were perfect). A simple obsidian heart pendant for everyday wear. Take a look at them here:

I love the results I have produced using sterling silver. I have so many ideas that I want to try out and can’t wait to do more with sterling silver.

After seeing how stunning the obsidian heart was,  I created one myself too. I love it so much! Obsidian is a beautiful gemstone that really speaks to me; I really love the tiny golden flecks. In the past it was a gemstone used for scrying and mirror magic because it was thought to reflect your soul within it. It can also offer spiritual protection and give wisdom to those who wear it. I hoping it will help me make wiser choices in the future. Keep watching this space to see!

Evanescent Moments in Jewellery Creation

I tend to be one of those people who is either all in: mind, heart, soul. Or all out: my time would be more productive watching Netflix with sushi. Don’t ask, I’m just weird. I have learned not to analyse the inner motives of my mind (too dark and dangerous), but to instead go with my creative flow, wherever it may take me. Maybe not the best plan, yet this way of thinking has given me such freedom and peace lately. I have experienced many evanescent moments as a result.

One moment happened yesterday, as walked under the simmering heat of the sun, I spotted such beautiful flowers, clusters of them woven together in a fabulous white carpet. I had to take a photo and post it on my Instagram page straight away. Here it is.

So abundant, so dainty, so fragile yet beautiful. I remember thinking how exquisite, what a beautiful and hard working planet I live on.  Quality and beauty. I decided for my next line of jewellery I will work on a range which is exquisite and elegant as those flower. A range made from fine materials such as sterling silver. Quality an beauty.  Keep an eye on this space because over the next few weeks I will create a range of sterling silver jewellery piece. I’m really excited about the project and cant wait to see where my creativity takes me.

I am also producing better photos, as evident from the flowers. I’m trying more angles and experimenting more.  Here is a lovely new bracelet I created after my flower inspiration.

I think the photo turned out lovely. I also decided to reduce many of my items to low and ridiculous prices to celebrate the oncoming summer. It has me in such a good mood: I want to share it with all you fabulous people. Your support means a lot to me. Thank you gals and guys, big hugs.

It has been an interesting journey where I have developed my cabochon wrapping skills, and wire weaving to produce eight beautiful pendants. Some are still available in my Etsy store if you wish to purchase.  Take a look over my journey, here are all eight below.

Bask in the beauty of these magical pendants, the flash, the shimmer, the shine, each more fabulous then the next. I am so proud of this collection. I love the boho style and when I created each of them it was so calming and relaxing. I think each one is like a little work of art. They are pieces to treasure.
