Have you taken a tour around the other participants of Handmade Monday yet? I usually look at a few more each day through-out the week. Loads of great products and ideas out there.
Last week on Ali's Craft Studio blog, I spotted her Art Nouveau inspired stain glass window, and it set me thinking.
Some time ago I came across Linda Jones' wirework design for Art Deco earrings. I just HAD to make it. That first pair are a firm favourite in my jewellery drawer, but a variation exists in my Polly Polkadot shop too.
I found a little quiet time to work on the individual wires.
I worked in 0.8mm silver plated wire, because it is easier to manipulate but long term I would like to try 1.2mm wire for a chunky pendant.
And attached the wires to a header and footer bar. As you can see, this is still a prototype, accuracy with lengths and angles is needed for a finished product.
first handmade Monday about pre-conceived ideas, here are a few others ways it could be used.
