more jewellery..

I've been trying some different things recently and these two necklaces are some of the results

I've called this long necklace SUNSET. I made it by filling some silver coloured circles with red tinted resin, but left the centre empty. When the resin was partly cured I added yellow tinted resin to the centre - where the two colours met it created a lovely sunset effect.

This necklace and earrings have hand coiled and hammered spiral of silver. I made the coils from 1.2mm silver plated wire and then hammered them flat which also work hardened the wire to make them rigid.

I've also made lots of new sweetie pendants and beads for Just K Beads and have some more to finish...

butterfly bracelets

I've reworked two butterfly bracelets I had for sale on JKJ - I needed some of the charms for a bespoke bracelet and it gave me the opportunity to incorporate some of the millefiori butterfly beads

Both of these bracelets are now on Just K Jewellery

millefiori butterflies...

I seem to be neglecting this blog. I've been busy recently working on orders - just posted an order for resin pendants.
I've now got a cupboard store on Mums Making Money - all items reduced for one week from time of listing... click here to visit MMM
I also have a 50% off sale running on Just K Jewellery - selected items only & no gift packaging - see Special Offers
I bought some gorgeous little millefiori glass butterfly beads recently & they've just arrived - I was looking for something else & couldn't resist them. I haven't made them up into any jewellery yet but watch this space...
In the meantime here's some new jewellery recently added to JKJ
