A wonderful present from IndiviJewels, So Six days to go for what we have all been working so hard for and what another mad year. This last week has just flown by as we try and finish all our orders, I feel like Santa’s little elf in my workshop till, 2,3 even 5 in the morning but its all worth it. All things considered its gone pretty smooth, Not to many problems compared to other frantic years and I’m more organized with my own Xmas preparations this year which makes me even more full of the Xmas joy, Nothing worse than rushing around, Been there and it’s just horrible. Now trying to keep up with your social media while very busy is not going to really happen no matter how hard you try, As the saying goes “Not enough hours in the day” Now if Santa could wrap up a little helper for me for the New Year that would be a most welcome present! So before it all went mad I had managed to take some photographs of our new bits which I referred to in my last blog, Now this particular bracelet was an absolute joy to design and make. I love the design so much I have decided to make it with sterling silver and gold fill, Now finding all the components might be a little tricky but hay-ho when I have my mind set on something I’m like a dog with a bone. So this jumbo bird’s nest is wrapped with approx 70 inches of 14k Rose Gold, So that’ s a lot of wire to wrap, Nothing worse than getting near the end and you realize its not the sphere shape you hoped for, Yes that’s right it’s happened a few times! It gets a lot more tricky when you entwine the pearls as well but I think it’s worth it when it’s finished, Totally unique to IndiviJewels and to be honest I don’t think many people would have the patience to try it lol. So I already had the silver and rose gold rondelles from another design, When you put the two metals together they really do pop, Much better in the flesh than photo’s could ever show, I love how the Rose Gold are just the slightly bigger than the Sterling silver donuts, If you go to big I think you lose the look and elegance you are looking for so for me just perfect. When the Bird’s Nest is added to the charm carrier it just all comes together and overall it makes a truly unique piece of jewellery that I’m over the moon about. Again I have gone with the magnetic clasp, I really love using it for this kind of design so it’s easier for you guys to just throw it over your wrist and let it do it’s job.I must admit I actually loved wearing it but that was only in the work shop, Didn’t want to get strange looks as walking down the street as lets be honest it’s not very manly. I have managed to get my hands on the sterling silver and Gold fill versions of the clasp so now I just need the bigger rondelles in those metals and Hay-Ho there’s no stopping me. So that’s me for another blog, Saturday night is here and to be honest I need some sleep or I will have to hold my eyelids up with matchsticks. Kids finished school yesterday so they are all pumped up looking forward to the big day. I hope to get back on with another blog before the end of the year as I have some catching up to do but it is Xmas so we will see what happens, If not then I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
