Some new jewellery playing this weekend

Hi all. Well my plan on Friday was to make some Christmas cards but that didn't happen as the day didn't go according to plan. I haven't been slacking this weekend though as I've still been creative. 

I've been trying out some new techniques. The first on Saturday afternoon  was learning how to make jewel enamel pendants etc with some fellow jewellery makers. Here's the pictures. 

Then in the evening I was so hooked on my new found technique I decided to have another play. I made these. 

Then on Sunday Morning I decided I would play some more. I made some more pendants by filling bezels. These I have added resin to the top to give a lovely domed finish. I also added resin to one of the pendants I made on Saturday. 

I also used some resin in some moulds to create various pieces. 

These two hearts have been coloured with perfect pearls and die. 

These two I have added in some guiding flakes. I did these ones in two stages. 

I also made some earrings. They still need to be made into earings but the bezels have been filled. 

In the afternoon have a go at making the cabucons I had created into wire wrapped pendants. 

Here's how they turned out. 

I still have some of my jewel enamel pieces to make into completed projects so watch this space. 

Bank Holiday Monday and this morning was playing with more wire. But this time I have been playing with wire and beads to create wire herringbone bracelets. I have made 7 bracelets in total. 

Here they are:

This first one is amethyst and fire polished crystals. 

This one is rainbow pyrite. 

The rest are made with beads from my stash (pearls, crystals etc). 

Well that's it for now. Off to be creative again. I will check back in tomorrow. 

Take care and thanks for looking.
