I just finished putting that photo tutorial together on my personal blog and you can read it here, if you like. What a lot of work! I really, really appreciate all the bloggers who take tons of time putting those together so that the rest of us can try and create new and wonderful things. If you do choose to take a look at my personal blog, keep in mind you’ll see my personal opinions there. I have no intention of offending anyone with my own opinions but “you can’t please all the people all the time.” I enjoy making things and I love the idea of photo tutorials. I think, though, that considering the fact that it took me approximately 2 hours to do the photos and 3 or more hours to put everything together in my blog post, I won’t be doing too many of them.
I will be working on a jewelry set for a special event which is coming up soon. Our theater group hosts an awards ceremony every year and it’s a pretty fancy event. It’s a lot of fun! So I’ll be using bright aluminum to create the pieces for this event and if I can find some Swarovski crystals which will really add to the pieces, I’ll be using them as well. I have the base pattern down in the earrings but I’ll have to make sheets for the bracelet and necklace. They’ll take a considerable amount of time to put together but should make nice conversation pieces when completed. Wish me luck!
The rosettes are also called Mobius Weave by some. If you’d like to learn more about why, here’s a link to some info on the mobius strip.
