Custom order #2

I was asked to make this jewellery set for a wedding for mother-of-the-bride. She chose this stunning set from Scott David Plumlee's books

This is how it all started:
  • I've ordered quite a lot of sterling silver wire and findings
  • I've coilled all wire and made a lot if rings (about 1300 of them) using drill, knitting needles and jewler's saw

After all rings were ready I started to weave and stopped before finishing, to make sure bracelet and necklace fit perfectly. I had to remove one section in bracelet and add 3 sections to the necklace.

Before attaching Svarowsky crystals I've polished all items in special solution. It all became very shiny.

Crystalls are attached with tiger wire.

Necklace in black colours

I've decided to have a go at my stash of seed beads. For a long time I wanted to make leafy necklace using black-and-grey beads. I think it will be gorgeous.
