Do I have the skills?

Over the year I have been lucky enough to find out about some very wonderful jewellery artist, I have mentioned earlier Iza and Eni but there are a few more I would like to mention. Slowly but surely I am hoping to try all there wonderful tutorials to help increase my skills and techniques.

So the most recent tutorial I have tried is Celtic Coiled Bezel Pendant by Perri Jackson. A wonderful tutorial although I think I still need alot more practise on my wire work skills. This is my creation on the left. There are a few things different then they should be but all in all I am very happy with my creation. I have another of hers to try, beaded caps and will post when done. Be sure to check out her tutorials at ShaktipajDesigns .

The other people I will talk about in the near future is Corra and her wonderful designs and tutorials and lastly is Bobbi some more gorgeous designs and tutorials. I am sure there is more artist's to discover but for now I hope to learn and grow from them.

Wow Shona! Yes I think you do have the skills. This is beautiful work.

Thanks too for visiting my blog and commenting on my hearts (Symbols of Love Series). I appreciate it!

I'm anxious to see more of your work. It truly is beautiful.

You did an excellent job on this, Shona! Your wrapping is so beautifully done!

I have been thinking about giving this tutorial a try, but I do not have any wire jigs. Are they a necessary tool, or does Perri give alternate directions for making it without a jig?

Cheers!

pippi, perri has added a comment on the tutorial page for it on jewelrylessons. She explains how you can make a jig, cheap and easy.
