End of an era

It’s very hard to depart with something that was overall reliable, a joy, and the main thing got me round to and from places especially from York and Canterbury. But now since it’s on its final run and chapter it’s time for me and the Punto to depart separate ways. However the next one is bigger, faster and better than the Punto and takes me even further than more meaning different areas of photography, places to see and new people to meet. So where shall I go on my next adventure.

forest fairy jewellery set

It was originally called a watermelon set however I renamed it to forest fairy. I used the red tiger’s eye as spacers and the agate and quartz has beads. I started making the bracelets, earrings and a hair come.

Then I realise have I got enough red to make a necklace, which I did. Also keeping to the forest theme I made a tree pendant out of memory wire to finish the feature off.

I discovered some silver beads on sale at the jewellery maker website along with some thread. So I experimented with the designs and manage to make five different coloured macramé style bracelets.

After receiving two gemstone strands I wondered how am I going to make jewellery with these. I nearly added them to the stash box. Then something hit me. After doing the green goddess themed set I wondered if I can redesign the bracelet. Ten minutes later a new bracelet was forged then a few minutes later a hair come/pin piece was forged.

 


Using the charm idea from the bracelet new earrings was formed.


 

Finally I tried something different for the necklace main feature. I made a flower type thread with the gemstones with a long dangle.
