For the last few posts for Handmade Monday I have been quite smug and pleased with myself as all my projects were turning out well.
Well I can now show that I can be smug BUT I am also able to admit it when things do not go quite to plan. I am talking about my plans for the third necklace. I have to say that I am quite surprised that it did not go so well as when I did my ‘prototype’ I was really excited.
I really loved the way the bottom rings overlapped each other and the middle shells turned slightly side ways. Unfortunately it did not quite look like this in wire:
I think that I maybe went a bit overboard with the beads, making it look too fussy. I wonder if this would be better without any beads at all? Oh well I put it all down to learning.
Do you like my new display stand? I am really pleased with it but poor Macca Pacca is no longer needed. I have 2, one in white and one in black. So my trio of necklaces are reduced to a duo. See here and here if you have missed them.
Maybe as a reaction to the disappointment I felt I have not done anymore wire jewellery but have switched to knitting with wool. It is still a WIP but I wonder if anyone can guess what it is?
It is not a Christmas hat but the yarn is so soft and lovely. It would make a great teddy bear!
Well that’s all for today. I am now going to nip off and find out what everyone else has been up to this week on Handmade Monday. Do join me….. 🙂
