I have some new supplies in antiqued copper and brass that I’ve been playing with, including some lovely filigree flowers and heart lockets.
I’ve made my first necklace with one of the filigree flowers, for which I worked a Swarovski rivoli for its centre. I have half a dozen flowers in different colours so I matched the crystals to the colour of the flower.
I’ve also been busy taking new photos of some of my existing work and the new packaging.
I started off my day by packing my first ArtFire sale that was bought by a lovely customer as a gift for a friend of hers. I am making all my own jewellery packaging at the moment. The item is wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and bound by ribbon, then it is placed inside a handmade pillow box. I am constructing the pillow boxes from black cardstock with a wide ribbon, on which I stick my homemade logo stickers. I print out 30 stickers on each A4 sheet of peel-off adhesive silver foil for InjJet printers.
I also packed a little gift for the customer herself, as a little ‘thank you’ for being my first ArtFire customer. As soon as the packing was done I went to the Post Office and sent both packages off.
After my walk to the PO I was happy to do some beading. I started a pair of earrings with pretty little glass flowers in a delicious violet/raspberry colour with coordinating seed beads and fringe beads.
