Something New

As you may know, I’m currently reworking my shop and moving in a new direction which will focus on hand crafted metalwork jewellery.il_fullxfull.620804100_doui

This weekend I decided to take a break from working on the house and devoted my Saturday to making jewellery.  The hours just flew by and although I had hoped to get more done I am really pleased with what I’ve accomplished!

These Cross Stitch Earrings are made using sterling silver sheet which is hammered for texture and drilled to create holes for cross stitching.

I’m not planning to completely stop making beaded jewellery, however I love the feeling of satisfaction that comes with creating something completely from scratch – right down to the ear wires.

Keep your eyes peeled for more metalwork jewellery coming soon!
