It’s been a busy few days of making. I’ve just about got together enough for my first attempt at a craft fair tomorrow – hopefully it will go well and I’ll sell a few things.
Here are a few examples of the things I have made – you can see some of the others on my new facebook page
Wish me luck 🙂
Now that she has it, I can share a pic of the necklace I made for Chris’s birthday present. It’s my first experiment with adding ribbon to chainmaille and I think it worked pretty nicely.
It’s just a simple band of European 4:1 with a few beads added and a matching ribbon woven through
Made a few pairs of earrings
They’re super basic, just tiny snippets of European 4-1 chain mail with an ear wire at one end and a bead at the other.
I don’t often use gold findings but the beads were pre wired in gold so I made the rest to match.
Just put the finishing touches to these two little adventurers
They’re for the raffle at Contraption tomorrow.
I have a few bits of jewelry I need to make for my course on Tuesday but other than that I need to take a short break from crafting as I have an essay to write for my OU course. It’s due next Thursday and as always I have barely even started making notes yet!
Not sure why I didn’t post this a couple of days ago when I made it
It’s a chainmail dice bag, made in the same way as I’d start a coif with an increasing hexagon, then there’s a few standard rows and a picot edging so it closes tight (there’s an instructable that explains the coif technique here)
I like that it opens out flat so you can have a good rummage through the dice. It holds plenty of dice too
This one is going to Contraption at the weekend as a donation for the raffle. The dice are staying with me 🙂
