I have continued along with the theme of the Granny Squares this week. Following comments from Divine Debris Jewelry and from Free Spirit Designs who said how much they like the copper wire I set off to make a bracelet using squares made from this wire.
Not quite right:
I thought that I would make one feature Granny Square using the copper wire with two gold ones each side. The gold wire I have is thinner and the squares therefore come out smaller
I had a quick discussion with my knowledgeable and opinionated son but didn’t come to any conclusion! However a bit later I suddenly had a brainwave (yep – doesn’t happen that often but did this week!) I would make it into a necklace:
I have to say that I think it is my favourite piece so far. No doubt partly because I love these colours.
The icing on the cake:
To top it all off I then found a lovely new way to make the ‘chain’ – a twisted braid. I really love this:
It is really simple to do (it does actually involve twisting the hook and wire around 360′) and it looks lovely too. I really feel that it finishes off the necklace really well. I hope that you agree.
Being Sunday I am now going to head over to Handmade Monday on Handmade Harbour to read the lovely blogs over there and see what else has been created this week. I really recommend that you come too.
