Bead Table Wednesday - The basics!

Hello dear readers,

As some of you might know, I am participating in an on-line jewelry making run by Deryn Mentock. It is called "The Build Zone - solid foundations in mixed media jewellery." I am enjoying myself immensely and have been practising a little most days since I started.

Like many courses, it starts with the basics and that is what I have been working on all week. So, needless to say that is what is on my bead table this Wednesday.

Copper hooks, love the cherry red ends. These have had Liver of Sulphur treatment

Copper S- links

Twisted jump rings

Some basics ( carnelian beads)

More copper clasps and connectors.

The growing pile.

 Briolette wrap with chalcedony -  I am finding these very difficult to get neat. ( 24 gauge copper wire.)

And that's it for me today folks,

Enjoy your day.

So cool Jenni, your wrapping skills are better than mine.

Jenni said...

A testament to the phrase, practice makes perfect! I love those twisted jump rings, they look so delicate and feminine. You certainly will not have to purchase findings for a while. Have a great day!

Really lovely work..and as far as the briolette..I think a wee bit messy is the charm of the over-wrapped style.
Love your blog and have added it to my list of favorites on my own blog :-)
