I have to say that all day I have been umming and ahhhing as to whether to write a post tonight or not. As always the lure of Handmade Monday over on Handmade Harbour is just too strong. I know that I shall be visiting blogs there so thought that I may as well put my penny’s worth in.
The last few days I have been doing some research to try to find other people who use wire and crochet / knitting to make jewellery. It has been totally inspiring and I have loads of ideas bubbling around in my head. Now before you worry, I am not going to copy what they do, it has been a case of looking at what they are doing and using it to inspire me to move on with my journey. Obviously there are some overlaps but largely what I am doing is my thing and what they are doing is theirs. I shall share some of these blogs / shops with you later. Today I want to keep things fairly short so shall move on.
Whilst making the second (well actually my first) bracelet I made one of those happy mistakes:
I have now gone on to make this little mistake into something within its own right:
What I really like about this is that it is slightly curved:
Don’t you just love it when a mistake turns into something lovely and new? Has it happened to you recently? My next project….earrings 🙂
I am now going to head over to catch up on all the other blogs over at Handmade Harbour, do come and follow me.
Hope you all have a great week 🙂
