It started when I ordered 2mm square silver wire instead of round. I didn’t want to send it back so instead I sat down and came up with these designs using it –
I hammered the square wire to make a very slightly wider but still thick and chunky bar with lots of texture, stamped the tiny letters, drilled the bar and gave it a gentle curve to sit on your wrist then used a nice and chunky silver chain and added a handmade clasp – it looks very pretty and discrete on your wrist.
I wanted to make a pendant with the same wire but keep it as sleek and simple as possible. I hammered the wire in the same way then hammered the top to make it wide enough to take a jump ring then stamped breathe from the bottom up.
The earrings I’m working on have been fighting back so I finished them today and they will appear tomorrow.
PS – The first BREATHE charm I stamped many years ago I ran out of room so have hidden in a draw somewhere a charm that says BREATH 🙂
