happy handmade

It is cost effective to practice a project on copper wire before before working with silver but you can end up with something you really like.

These earrings are very basic and were really easy to make. I wasn’t sure about it after I made the spirals but the hammering and texturing really made a difference. Sometimes the simplest things can be come something very nice.

They’d make a nice Christmas present, don’t you think?

love knot ring

This is my 2nd attempt at the love knit ring in copper.

Not bad for a first try plus it fits! :) I already know where I want to make changes to improve to look of this ring. Ultimately, my goal is to do it in sterling silver in a heavier gauge. :D Question is… should I make it for me or someone else. Hmmm … decisions, decisions… ;)
