Bead Shelf


I continue to work my way through Mary Hettmansperger's book Wrap Stitch Rivet. This is my next piece for the challenge, the bead shelf. I find i really practiced a lot of new techniques for this one. Not only was this my first time working with self-annealed metal, it was also the first time i had succesfully drawn beads on a wire. The top of each dangle there has a bead on the wire.

Now i need to get my butt in gear, and get pictures taken before Deryn Mentock's challenge to work through the book is over, for i've also finished the mixed metal pendant that comes next, and also the pea pod project.

Great work, Dale! I'm so glad you're still working on the projects. There's so much to be learned about technique and creativity!

this is so very lovely! the metal is just gorgeous. i can't wait to have more time so i can try some of these things out for myself, though i fear my jewelry making abilities are seriously lacking. will be good for a nice laugh, at least. :)
