I've had a bit of a break from paper crafting this week and had a few days making jewellery. The first one is made using wire weaving and the second one is Chain Maille and called captured beads.
I've had such a great time making them and was lucky enough to get both pieces shown on the Jewellery Maker TV Channel.

Wow this is so different for me! I loved doing it and I'm so pleased with the result. I'm going to use it as a cover for a cheap supermarket notebook.
Below are a few photos to show how I arrived at my final piece.
I started by using different stamps and different coloured inks.
I then took an open floral stamp which I stamped twice with Versamark and embossed.
Difficult to see but you may just make out the images.
I then covered the whole lot in different colours of PanPastels.
I then needed to erase the Pans from the embossed flowers.
I then outlined one of the flowers with black Wink of Stella, I thought it was a little harsh so added dots with a white pen before colouring in the flower.
The second flower I outlined in white pen before colouring in.

I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed making these pendants over the Xmas holidays.
It's so easy to sit with this work on you're knee - whereas when I'm paper crafting I seem to have out half my craft room!!
I'm so enjoying learning something new.
Happy New Year everyone xxxx
