What Did I Make?

After catching up with hours of extra sleep over the last few days I felt well rested and up for making something today. I have been wanting to make something from Linda Jones book called Creating Wire and Beaded Jewelry for some time now.  With supplies to the ready I started to make the units for the wiggly wire chain.  I had so much fun making this!  I used  pewter coloured Czech fire polished beads as an added point of interest to the design.  The units are work hardened on a steel block with a hammer before being linked together.  A bit tough on the wrist but only light pressure is needed.
I am very happy how my contemporary looking necklace turned out. It seems that silver is very me!

Oh it is lovely, Simone! And it sits really nicely, which I imagine isn't always an easy feature when working on a design like this - very well balanced :) xx

Wish your face was showing, Simone, but I love your necklace! I think you are quite good with jewelry!
And so happy you are feeling better! xx

One of the most gorgeous things I've ever seen you make Simone. Totally different and just so pretty.
Wear with pride.
