Here it is, my latest finished tree of life, a lot like every other tree of life I’ve made:
Yeah, I’m getting a bit bored with these but I suppose I ought to realize that if I ever do take this jewelry-making to another level, production work is something I have to accept. So it was a good exercise in that regard.
A couple days ago I showed a few UFOs (unfinished objects) I had lying around; here are two more I neglected to post. The teardrop-shaped wire is going to be a sweet necklace someday, with one of these “turquoise” stones in the middle of it:
And this . . . I don’t even know what to say about this, because I’m trying to do some wire wrapping similar to something I saw online years ago (somewhere!) but I have no idea how to secure an edging . . . and the back . . . how would I do the back? I’d like to work it out myself, but maybe I should find a tutorial somewhere, or buy one at one of those sites that sell you lessons. Might be worth it just to see what that’s like.
The stone is probably an aventurine donut. It was part of a corded necklace I got some years ago, which was starting to look really frayed, so I figured I could recycle it this way.
Here’s hoping the more UFOs I post here, the more likely I am to actually get them done! And here’s hoping I’ll finally get the mystery project done tonight so I can show it off tomorrow!
