I made a small foray into jewelry making back in 2012 . I soon lost interest in it, However, I had picked up a few tools and supplies that would be sufficient to make quite a few sets of earrings etc. In a small attempt to exhaust my supplies, I decided to make a pair of earring for this project . I had enough to make one set of brass earrings. Whats needed :
- Basic Jewelry tools
- Brass Tubes (5)
- Brass Beads
- Jewelry Wire
Hooks For each earring you will need 2.5 Tubes, 3 beads , 1 Hook , and sufficient length of wire First cut 1 tube into 2 half’s
The rest was easy. Starting with a Loop , Thread a bead , pipe, bead , cut pipe,bead, pipe and then loop in back into the first bead . The remaining wire needs to be wound around the loop and the balance cut off.All that remains to be done is to attach the hook to the loop .
Da Da DONE!!!
As usual I went missing after i Appeared in February. Without giving any more excuses, I wanted to say I have started working on My Alphabet Craft Challenge . I hope to accomplish 26 New crafts in 26 odd weeks remaining this year.
I have a Few Crafts Planned in a spreadsheet That looks something like this
The First Alphabet of the English Language being A, I was looking at Making something with Air Dry Clay Immediately.
I Use the “Shiplakar” Brand From Pedilite.
I don’t have much experience with Airdry Clay and this is my first experiment with this Medium .
For this particular Project, I used a scrap piece of wood as my Base. Using Madhubani for the Art form , I used the airdry Clay for creating the lines
and used Acrylic Colors to fill in .
This key holder is a gift for my FiSHY loving Sister
I finished the same with Acrylic colors and bejeweled the eye with a kundan and Done!!
I Am rather Happy with the experiment .
