Since I went on my first jewellery making course I have to be honest in that I have been struggling a bit for ideas. At the time I put it down to the world of jewellery being so wide open with so many different variables which I found overwhelming. This weekend however something has ‘clicked’ and I am now bursting with so many ideas that I don’t know where to start or when I am going to get time to do them all before I forget! I have no idea what ’caused’ the change. I am just really grateful and full of energy. As such I am going to keep this post quite short so I can go and get on with the making.
I have not got an awful lot to show this week – I hope that there will be a lot more next week. I have spent a lot of time trying to finish a knitting project that I am doing for a book (not my own design). That is nearly finished now 🙂 I can’t show you yet but will in a few months when you will have forgotten all about it ;).
I have to say that I am quite pleased with how my jewellery making has come on this week:
I have also made a bracelet but as I have yet to blog about this I don’t think it would be fair to share it on here yet. (If you want to see tutorials on these rings and have a go yourself they can be found here and here.)
The final thing that I have to show you is the beginnings of one of my ideas:
I took a simple silver wire bracelet and, so far have covered it with thread using crochet. I then crocheted some sewing thread in a different colour along each side. The idea is that I create a range of different sorts of these that can then all be worn together or not as desired. I have at least 4 more different versions in my head and that does not involve different colour versions of this one.
As always I am about to head over to Handmade Harbour to catch up with all the amazingly talented crafters/bloggers over there.
P.S If you have a great argument or strong view on pinterest then please add your comment here. I am trying to work out if it is a good idea to join in or not. 🙂
I hope that you all have an amazing week. x
