No camera!

I'm currently without access to a camera. Hopefully I'll be able to replace the card in the next few days, and I can get back on track. I think I'm going to have to skip a couple of weeks of the YOJ. Either that or whip up a bunch of earrings and use them.

Check back soon, please!

YOJ week fourteen

I used memory wire as the core of this caged bangle. The additional strength of the steel is the main reason for the choice, but it is also more economical than silver. I found that the wraps all go the same way, which surprised me, and while I chose to continue that way I think I like it better when they spiral in both directions, so I guess I'll have to figure out a way to do that next.

This next photo is of several of my Caged bangles in a stack. I think they look fabulous that way, although it would be rather heavy on the wrist to actually wear them like this. Still - might be worth the effect to do so sometime!

Altar is up on Etsy

I bit the bullet and listed my Altar print on Etsy.
I really want to get one of my ammonite prints up too, but I don't have the packaging to ship it when it sells. Need to get that first.

YOJ week thirteen

A claspless caged charoite bangle, with a single Thai silver bead. As always, the caging wires are sterling. The centre wire is also sterling, although I am planning to try memory wire next. I bought some, so now I just have to figure out how to joint he two ends invisibly. I am hoping the memory wire works, because it will decrease the cost and should increase strength, and because it won't be visible it shouldn't make an aesthetic difference.
