Not much in the way of skill or creation with these ones…
Mum was getting rid of some of Gran’s marcasite jewellery, which I think are just gorgeous. All the earrings are screw-on, which doesn’t appeal to me, so I want to convert them to pierced fittings of some kind. These are the first ones I’ve done.
I went on a jewellery cleaning and tidying spree earlier this week. I didn’t like the way my necklaces were in the one section together — some rather fine and prone to knotting — so I folded some origami boxes to keep them separate, and keep matching sets together.
Might as well show failed craft projects too!
These were supposed to become pop stick wrist cuffs (click for tutorial), but I guess I need much longer sticks, because there is no way that I could get one of these to wrap around my wrist in any cool way… I guess I could try two together, but then I’d need to do too much cutting, filing, glueing and that seems like it would give it weak joints.
I did see some longer sticks at the shops the other day, but that doesn’t help me get rid of the packet I already have.
Wire ball earrings. I also made a necklace to match.
Wire pod necklace with blue seed beads
My first attempt at silver cutlery jewellery! It’s not finished yet… Not sure if I’ll bend the crest around or leave it as the style of ring that covers the next finger too. I couldn’t bend the top with pliers or hammer, I’ll need to heat that part with a torch if I want to curve that part.
I think I want to put something over the stamp in the crest.
