Have you worked with brass wire before?
If you have, then you know what a bugger it can be.
Stiff and hard to work with…even the thinner gauges.
Sometimes when I look at my hands, I realize just how strong they have become
since I start making jewelry, especially working with wire and metals.
Fighting with the brass wire made the time spent
on these five pair of earrings way too long.
“And my finger tips are sore, too,” she whined.
Of course I had to redo one, because I realized I had miscounted the beads.
These are all just fun and flirty earrings for a craft fair this Saturday.
Also made these two front closure sterling necklaces.
What joy to switch to sterling silver !!
The craft fair is part of an early Fourth of July celebration for families…
with music, used book sale, games, and a parade.
All at the local library! I’ve said it before, and it’s worth repeating…
I LOVE my library!
NOTE…please come back this Sunday to enjoy
the Pearls, Pearls, Pearls Blog Hop,
hosted by MiShel Designs,
and see what I’ve been cooking up for it!
