Here I am again making jewellery, I find it quite relaxing and I am inspired by my friend and fellow beader Stacey! For this next piece I wanted to use acrylic.During last semester I was left with various acrylic rods and really want to chop them up and make a light of some kind (but will have to sweet talk my dad into lending me his band sew first!) So for this item I decided to make a necklace using transparent acrylic with silver wire wrapped around accompanied by pearl beads. I like neutral colours and feel the materials complement each other well.
One of the photoshops from my initial concept for my 2nd year radio project LIMBS.
This time I wanted to work with ribbon, I painted on the ribbon with acrylic paint and metallic pen.
I decided to use some more of the felt to make bracelet and ring to match the necklace:
I have revamped a broken necklace I found in my room. I didn’t want to use beads or metal so thought I would use felt. I wasn’t sure how strong felt would be but it is quite effective. Felt jewellery is a huge craze within the craft industry, just searching google thousands of examples appear.
New necklace made tonight, using up supplies from my 3rd year modules. I would really love to do some laser cut jewellery next year if I can get time on the cutter!
I love watches in all shapes and colours
Here are some extracts from a notepad my mother handed me with some interesting self-portraits in from 1997! cringe! I must have liked Adidas!
