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!

Tree of Life Perm, Pearls, Competitions and Panic

Tree of Life Perm, Pearls, Competitions and Panic

I am going to start this post by mentioning how fabulous all you guys and gals are. I have been so amazed by all the support I have received. You guys and gals are so fabulous and I really appreciate you all.

This week has had me in a panic, there has been so much to do! However, I did manage to get in some fabulous jewellery making, pearl knotting and a competition. (see my Facebook or Instagram page). I think I managed it all and here are the pictures to prove it.

I created this unique tree of life using one of my magic labradorite stones (number 7), only to have my teenage daughter “ask” for it. She adores it, won’t take it off and is stilling gazing at it all starry-eyed as I type. I have mummy points for this one. But she’s happy and that’s what my jewellery is all about: making others happy. So this one is not for sale but I wanted you all to see it because it reminds me of an perm my mother used to have.

This week I also branched out and tried a new skill: knotting pearls. Above is my first attempt. It took me a while but it turned out lovely and looks so elegant. Perfect for a wedding or special occasion…or special someone.

And if that wasn’t enough for this week, I also ran a competition to win a free set of earrings of choice on my Instagram and Facebook page.  A lovely lady called Barbara was the lucky winner and will receive a unique pair of handmade earrings. Well done to everyone else who entered. You support means a lot. The earrings not chosen will be placed in my store for Saturday for anyone to purchase.

Tree of life perms, pearls and competition panic now over. Enjoy the weekend x
