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!

My Timely Creation of Earrings.

Maybe it’s because it’s Easter, maybe I had a lot of energy, maybe I was overdoing it, or maybe I was inspired. I like to think I was inspired, whether from the warm spring weather, God, my daughter’s demands for new earrings or just the beauty of each stone. Whatever the reason, over the last two days I have created earrings in a timely fashion. I created twelve pairs but decided to keep one pair for myself: after all that hard work I needed a little reward didn’t I?

I created an eclectic mix of wire wraps, dangling gems and even some chakra stimulation. I love each pair and really enjoyed creating them. Here they are for you to feast on:

Which is your favourite?

The set I kept are similar to the pair in the bottom right corner but had jasper rounds all the way down instead of the green aventurine. I keep looking at this picture and wondering how I did it all in such a timely manner. Oh well when inspiration hits, it hits! I need to enjoy it while it lasts because I know when Easter’s over there won’t be as much time to create.
