But anyway, here are a couple of necklaces and a ring. Let me know what you guys think!
This is a two-finger ring featuring Karl Lagerfeld!!! I always get tons of positive feedback on it. I'm planning to do a few more in silver, with Karl Lagerfeld, Amy Winehouse, Kate Moss, and a few other notables. Let me know if anyone is interested in buying one -- I love to work for a purpose rather than just make stuff for myself.
I made this necklace with a handful of different coins from all over the world. It is cold-connected, meaning no heat, soldering, or melting was used. It is held together by hand-made rivets, which are basically wire that is hammered to flatness on each end. VERY tedious, but well worth it - each coin moves, and is not just stuck together. I think that gives it some life, oui?
This necklace was shown with my Valentines Day outfit here. It is made with about 25 feet of wire and some stone chips from one of my grandmother's necklaces. The pendent at the end is held tightly in a hand-crocheted net. It is for sale on my ETSY shop.
This is another hand-crocheted piece. It is a multi-strand necklace made with 75 feet of wire! It has rose-quartz chips woven directly into it. I always get a lot of compliments when I wear it (not to brag! Does that sound too braggy?) and people are always shocked to know that it is made with 25 yards of wire!! It's also on my ETSY shop.
Let me know what you guys think! I hope you like them. Send me links of your jewelry too! I really love the rings that Ugne. K posted on her blog. Check 'em.
