"Eire" set

I think the photos don't do this piece justice (especially in this small size, please click on the image for full view), the wire's so much shinier in person.
Materials used: jewellery grade copper (it won't tarnish), anodized green aluminium, swarovski crystals (colour peridot) and glass doughnuts.
This was inspired by Ireland, its green fields and copper swirls reminiscent of its Celtic tradition.

Byzantine weave necklace

My order of Swarovski crystals finally arrived and they're really so beautiful! Now, of course, I have a thousand ideas of what to do with them, time's never enough but we'll get there slowly! :)
It was the first time I tried using half-persian to encase the medallion and it was an head ache at first but finally I got it right and loved the result, I think it's a very discrete and elegant piece.

Chainmaille bracelet

Another chainmaille E4-1 bracelet. It's made from 1mm wire and counts about 300 rings. I hope the new owner likes it. :)
