Hey all, New here as of tonight. I’m just getting started with making jewellery. Setting up my work area in our new home this week. I have made some chokers, earrings, woven wax cord bracelets and a couple of necklaces before we moved from the South to the Northern part of New Zealand. I’m in love with Victorian era designs and I also like the ‘creepier’ things like skulls, spiders, bones and bats. I’m a hopeless romantic however and adore femininity and pretty things within my work. At the moment due to my financial limitations and newbie status I’m only working with inexpensive alloys and aluminium, using cold connections, glue and wire wrapping techniques. Eventually I’d like to become a skilled silver smith able to make everything from scratch.
