601  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Chain experiment necklace and a wire ring. Updated: Close-up picture. on: January 25, 2008 01:41:33 PM

**Link to a tutorial I made for this chain: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229562.0**





Hey everyone, just posting some more work to let you guys get to know me. I enjoy working with metal immensely!

This necklace is the result of an experiment with different chain making techniques. It is made from square sterling silver wire. The beads are fluorite and moonstone.


Next is a ring made of sterling silver wire as well. It was a royal pain in the arse to make this ring. As you can see, it is very detailed. Detailed wire work and stubby fingers do NOT go well together.


Enjoy!  Kiss

Edit: I forgot to mention the stones in the ring. The focal stone is sodalite and the accents are moonstone.

Edit: Here is the close-up!

WOW! I really LOVE the Kristen bracelet!!! That is just the best name ever! LOL! Actually it's my name too hehe. Grin They all look very nice. I like the blue and green on clear too.

It actually says "Kirsten", which is my name as well. I'm particularly sensitive to those who see Kirsten and automatically think it says Kristen. It happens sooooo often.  Roll Eyes

Thank you for all of your kind comments. I'm really glad you like my work.

My opinion is that they are beautiful! I love the second pair. The shapes are very interesting.

Whatever you make, just put yourself into it, and it will look great.

Totally spazzed on the measurements. It measures 2.5 inches at the widest point and 2 inches at the tallest. Also, it strangely looks bigger than it actually is.

I'm a bit disappointed that the hammering didn't show up too well. It's also a tad shinier than the picture reveals.

I guess I have to hone my photography skills.  Undecided

The first two sets are adorable! If they had cheeks, I would be pinching them so hard right now. Grin

I am new to Craftster and this is my very first project post! Be gentle with me.



This is my newest project. It is a pendant cut from sterling silver sheet metal. It has a matte, hammered finish. It is designed to be highly customizable depending on how you string it. Let's say you string it on a piece of beige suede for work, and switch to a black lacy ribbon when you want to go out to dinner.

Comments and questions welcome!

Edit: I am not pleased with how the above picture came out. Here is what I believe to be a more representative sample.



Edit edit: It's not really matte anymore. Ok, SHINY hammered finish. We all love shiny things here, anyway.  Roll Eyes

I definitely need to try this technique. So lovely.

Not only do I love the design, but the color variation has me in a trance. (A good one!) Love, love love.
