Handmade Wire Jewelry ~ Messy Diamond Earrings


2nd April 2014 @ 5.10pm (Wednesday)

Hello ... I am making my "appearance" again after a lapse of nearly a month.  

Here's a pair of earrings which I crafted using silver plated wire.  The two triangle components are  joined together in the middle with amethyst beads and  thinner gauge wires were purposely tangled to form the base as part of the earring design.  

I wonder what name should be given to this earrings...... Let's call it

MESSY DIAMOND EARRINGS

New Wirework Jewelry Tutorial ~ Twisted Wire Flower Link

7th March 2014 (Friday) @ 11.55pm


Code:   ESP 6/2014

Price:  USD 2

Inspired by a flower pendant I bought years ago, led me to create this tutorial which I've released and is now listed in my etsy shop, www.etsy.com/shop/emilysecretpassions as instant download in PDF file.  

This tutorial is suitable for a beginner who already have basic wirework skills or for those who just want to have fun making it.  It teaches how to make this free-form flower link from a long wire that is twisted together, and then hammered, to form the flower.  The main photo above shows how it is used in a beaded necklace and a pair of dangle earrings but this tutorial also has a step by step instructions on how to make a pair of twisted flower ear studs to match the necklace.  

You can create other designs from just this flower link ~ namely necklace, bracelet, earrings, lariat, choker, pendant and even a book mark.  

I'll bet you just can't stop at making one!

A Flower Pendant Inspired Me

2nd March 2014 (Sunday) @ 3.00pm

A flower pendant that I bought from Vincci many, many years ago inspired me to make a flower made from twisted wire.   I have never used any other kinds of wire except colour coated copper artistic wire, so when I thought about making this flower, I thought about twisting the wire to get the twisted design and then hammering it to get a flat surface.  The funny thing is that I have never worn the necklace which I have kept in my dressing table drawer for many years ....... meaning even before I started my wirework journey.


Inspired by this ....... 


Twisted wire flower links 


To this ..... a pair of beaded dangle earrings



And this ..... a beaded necklace with the twisted wire flower links as part of the design.

One can create many types of jewelry from this multi-purpose twisted wire flower link ~ namely necklace, bracelet, earrings, lariat, choker, pendant, brooch and even a bookmark.


A sample set of matching beaded necklace and 
earrings using the twisted wire flower links


Photography in session.

I am in the midst of  the editing the photos and writing the step-by-step instructions in the tutorial for this twisted wire flower link and a pair of twisted wire flower ear studs, which I will be listing in my Etsy shop , www.etsy.com/shop/emilysecretpassions soon.

Ok, now back to finalising the tutorial right after this.  
Have a wonderful weekend and productive week ahead every one !  :D

A Pair of Vintage Ear Clips

18th February 2014 (Wednesday) @ 12.38pm

Found this pair of vintage-looking mixed-media ear clips while I was cleaning my late mum's possessions.  It is made with wire, has coloured plastic pearls and raffia strings that has been weaved into the design to form leaves.  
I think this ear clips are more than 50 years old if I'm not mistaken!  I've seen them stashed away in my mum's jewelry box when I was a little girl. My mum may have bought them when she was a young lady but I have never seen her worn them.  
Anyway, it's gonna be mine now.   :D




Thanks for looking &  have a nice day!
