What I have been doing lately

Whilst at the last bead meeting I started talking to Cas about making a chain maille bracelet for my mother in law for mothers day. As it turned out she had a heap of kits with her and this is the one I found and loved, ROOSA weave and to make things better I had enough rings left to make on for myself.

I started working on this when I got the bead & button bracelet magazine. Its called sparkling wave. When I first started I did the size15 in the colour black, not a good idea it looked like mouse poo. So with new seedies brought here it is. Looks lovely on too.

Last but not least.

A few posts ago I showed you a pendant I had made and that I was going to make a double viking knit. Well here it is, I am very happy with the results. It was made with 28 gauge non-tarnish artistic silver wire.

Love the Helm

I made this bracelet for my cousin's birthday. As I wasn't sure if she preferred silver or gold I decided to go with this combo. It is helm/parallel weave and they are plated rings from cas.

Very happy with how it turned out.

Oh and this is a spiral bracelet I have been working on (my first one) and finished yesterday. Our beading group currently gives jewellery to different charities and this will be one of mine to give.

I am loving working with all these different mediums its just so much fun. I got some new cutting blades the other day so hopefully I will have some more chain maille soon.

Eni Oken woven bail

I was introduced to a wonderful artist Eni Oken and her wonderful wirework by some people from the beading forum. She recently released a new tutorial -heart pendant and I was convinced that although I had not done wire wrapping. It would not be to hard to do. I am currently working on it but I am waiting on a few supplies to finish it. So I will post a pic when I have finished.

Whilst looking at her site though I came across another tutorial -woven bail and decided that since I still had some beautiful beads of debs that I would give it a go. It is not as neat as I think it should be but I am pretty have with the results.

Thanks Eni and Deb and thanks for looking.
