Posts Tagged ‘challenge’

It’s been a busy few months for me on the home front, but I have finally got around to finishing my necklace for the’ Inspiration to Creation’ post.

Setting a mini challenge for myself was a lot of fun, if not a little time consuming. I can’t tell you how many pieces I have sitting in a box needing ‘just one more component’ to finish it off!  So I’ve had my silversmithing torch out and decided to create some copper component parts;  not just for this piece but also for some more necklaces that I am making as part of a new collection.

All that hammering and soldering has paid off and I now have a few more pieces that are complete, so it really was time well spent!

In the final stages of making this necklace, I didn’t use the solid ribbons that I originally chose as they were too flat and drained the colour from the beads. Instead,  I paired the beads with some soft printed silk, which I thinks works better and gives the necklace a lovely romantic feel.
