Jump Ring Silver Necklace

I made this for my auntie for Christmas.

I had one hour and all the jump rings turned up the wrong size!

I leave this here as a reminder to always get the right gauge of j/ring!!

She, however, loved it and my little experiment taught me a few lessons about this kind of jewellery!

Freshwater Pearls and Tourmaline Birthday Bracelet

Tourmaline and Pearls

A client had purchased some pearls whilst on holiday and wondered if there was anything we could add to them to make a present for his mother in law for her October birthday.

As the birthstone for October is tourmaline, I used a strand of fading colours from pink to green in a twisted design and a big T-bar clasp so she could undo it and do it up herself.

Making Something Old Into Something New

A customer came to me with a piece that she loved the stones on but couldn’t wear.

It was strung as a half three-row and didn’t sit properly on her neck. All of the beads were drilled diagonally so the whole necklace looked twisted.

Taking out the plastic beads, we made it into different jewellery that she now enjoys wearing.
