I haven’t been keeping up with blog-posting my chainmaille or beaded jewelry! Here are a few of my more recent projects. The bracelet above has amethyst and glass rondelles with aluminum rings in byzantine. The chainmaille bracelet below is elfweave, the first I’ve tried from a kit from Blue Buddha Boutique.
The necklaces above are part of a going-away package I’m making for my co-workers (amethyst, blue aventurine, agate, glass rondelles). Yep, I’m the one who is going away to a new job but they’ll get the goodies. =) They were modeled after my original “Purple Thursday” necklace below (agate and glass). My branch has a routine or dressing in purple on Thursdays. It is just something quirky that we do!
I had just finished the necklace above (lapis lazuli, blue candy jade, turquoise, moonstone, blue quartz) and 15 mins later it was sold to a high school friend of my brother’s on Facebook. There was also a matching bracelet. The necklace below is something I made on a whim using a lot of different beads – amethyst, jade, tourmaline, garnet, fresh water pearls, red tiger’s eye. The rings on the project below are brass.
