Interesting day today. I spent a few hours searching for fun jewelry tutorials, and 2 or 3 more hours taking apart thrifted jewelry for the beads and findings, then sorting through the beads to see what I have. This is what I ended up with:
I ran out of the little containers, so I guess I’ll have to go pick up some more tomorrow or Friday.
I’ve been wanting to play with wire wrapping lately, so I decided to start with an “easy” tutorial. My result:
I’m not completely in love with this result (the best of three tries today), but some practice should improve the outcome.
This is a small piece of Chinese turquoise that I found in a box of just over a pound of turquoise beads at Michael’s. Some are nicely shaped and polished, like this one, and others are nuggets or chips. The wire is just craft wire (24g I think), so the materials aren’t expensive. Perfect for trying new techniques.
As of now, I’m still not sure what I’ll be working on tomorrow. Guess we’ll all be surprised tomorrow evening!
