Last weekend we saw a guy selling these at the Cardiff food fest, I could tell my wife really liked it (she's a vet, really has a thing for pigs). I didn't buy it for her though, when we got home I did a bit of research, found some old 1920's Irish half pennies on the internet, then a couple of busted jeweller's saw blades and some tedious viking knit later, ta-daa! She gets home tomorrow, can't wait till she sees it! Cheesy

Finished another commission recently for a friend's sister.

Organics Necklace Full by fecklepie, on Flickr

The lampwork beads, bead caps, clasp and extender chain are all handmade. All the beads went in the tumbler - I'm trying to avoid etching when I can.
I haven't had any problems with losing bits of silver (yet!).

Hello everyone! Long time no see - I haven't touched the torch in a month (and then only to finish a necklace that I promised to someone), but I've been into wire-work for some time now.

I'm currently in Czech Republic (or how do you say it in English? We Dutch call it TsjechiŽ) on vacation, but before I went there, I made this piece of jewellery. I'm quite proud of it so I wanted to show it to you - I feel that I'm getting better and better at wire-work.





I'm really getting into silver smithing and other 'raw' techniques, and I'm thinking about doing a workshop or course on gem cutting! (I love gemstones and I would love to learn more about them and to work with them). I guess that lampwork just wasn't really my thing (what with my unstable hands and fear of fire hahahah) Sad But now I have a new focus. What do you think?

I have made a New bracelet, its for a good friend of mine as a late birthday present. I'm not good at making my beads into Jewelry, mostly because most of my beads are Experiments of some kind.  I think I will try to make a similar one for myself, but perhaps choose only Three or so different kinds of beads.

I've had this pair beads on my bench for months now, and finally got round to making them into earrings today.
They are Effetre medium amber (I think), Purple Rose frit and silver foil. I have sealed the copper wire so my ears don't go green Smiley

Here is a New necklace I just finished. This is to be a gift for my sister I think. I haven't sold any of my Jewelry as of yet, as I still feel I'm a novice at bead making and only want to sell Perfect beads. I also find it hard to set a price, People have asked to buy a couple of Things that I have worn my self, and I don't even know what would be a decent price. I have read the threads in here about pricing, and it is not easy to decide.

I can't offer advice on pricing, I'm rubbish at it.

Looking at the beads in that necklace, I'd say you're a novice no longer.

I love the necklace Irene and I agree your beads are lovely ! You should feel confident in selling them . Smiley As for pricing I ask for what I think I would pay for something myself, and if it doesn't sell I reduce the price after a while. But I still find it hard to know what to charge.
