Wirework

May 3, 2010

I got this beautiful carnelian stone in a gift shop in Pike place, Seattle a couple of years.  At that time, I didn’t know what I would do with the stone and  it was lost in my big pile of jewelry making supplies. It resurfaced this morning when I was clearing some shelves to move all my supplies to a new workspace.  I  quickly dropped all my other chores  and sat down to make this striking pendant.  I used 22 ga copper wire for the wirework .

How do you accessorise an outfit

July 16, 2009

I always wonder what goes well together.  Should I wear  earrings and a necklace to match my blouse or should I just wear a striking bracelet . What is in fashion and and what appeals to the eye.

When I was younger, I didn’t like to wear necklaces.  I would just wear  a matching earring. Nowadays, with me more involved in fashion jewelry, I try to wear an earring and a coordinated  bracelet and rarely do I wear all 3 matching pieces unless it is a special occasion.  It all depends on  my mood that day and how much time I have to get dressed.

What I find though is, however we wear it, if its a fine piece of jewelry and if its unique, it always catches somebody’s attention.

So how do you like to wear your jewelry?

I strung the amethyst stones on an elastic cord. The amethyst stones are separated by  silver plated spacers to enhance the colour . I have followed the same pattern on the earrings as well
