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!

Jewellery Making

Sunday Pause

I took a pause today from everything else but jewellery. I put all my commissions aside and just enjoyed making. I was playful, I was creative, a bit lazy at times (had a few Netflix moments) but came back and became very inspired by my pearls. I have lots of them ready to string, and some which I wanted to play around with –  creatively speaking. So out came my silver plated copper wire and out came my pearls and out came the pliers, I heart my tools, and creativity commenced. All this creativity birthed a beautiful jewellery set.

Behold the Twisted and Tangled Pearl Set. Born from unrestrained jewellery play.

 

I really love it. Its elegant and vintage and casual all at the same time! It’s so unusual and creative, a true one of a kind piece. I am really glad I decided to take a pause today. It provided me with a free creative space, where I had so much fun and produced something a princess or queen could wear.
