Looking through my site you will see that i mainly use sterling silver or silver coloured items to hand make my jewellery. I occasionally use some gold too but mainly for commissioned items.
I'm not sure why i choose silver, i suppose its because its what i like personally and what works with my designs.
Recently during a shopping session stocking up on wire to make my button bouquets one of my supplies Beads and More by Lois contacted me to see if i would be interested in testing out a sample of her vintage jewellery findings.
She said it would give me the opportunity to do something outside of my comfort zone!
So loving the idea of something new i said.... yes.
Initially i had a bit of a panic because I wasn't sure what to expect and couldn't really picture what colours would work.
As usual from the wonderful Beads and More by Lois super quick delivery soon stopped me wondering as a pretty little package turned up .
Not really sure what to expect i ripped into the parcel i was faced with a selection of headpins, chain a toggle clasp and jump rings but the more important parts where the pretty little charms decorative balls, bead caps, heart, bow and a rose.
I was very excited and inspired by these and instantly thought emerald green jewellery set!!
So i got shopping and found some pretty little emerald green crystals to go with the charms to create my masterpiece!!
I soon got to work to create a pretty set of earrings and a necklace.
This is a complete different piece to anything i would normally make and a completely new design but it certainly wont be the last.
I'm working on new collections all the time and next time when i order from the wonderful Beads and More by Lois i certainly will be including a selection of her vintage charms and findings and hopefully coming up with some more on trend vintage style necklaces, earrings bracelets, rings and lots more so what this space!!
Once more thing i would like to tell you before i share a photo of my piece is that i will also be doing an interview with the lovely Beads and More by Lois to thank her for inspiring me!!
