New wire, new color

Sorry that I haven't been on for a while, but since the Bead and Button Show, it's been non stop commissions and getting ready for summer shows. Here's the lastest wire creations that I've been working on, Princess Royale. This time in my Parawire Antique Bronze color, and using the custom woven braid to craft a necklace. I'm very happy with the drape of the braid, it's very comfortable on. It finishes the design, and after seeing in my first show yesterday, I can tell you it's going to be a hit this fall. Luckily I purchased two rolls of it.

Let me know your feedback on this type of design, and the color choice. It's important to hear abuot it.

The Aftermath of Bead and Button

I went to my yearly migration to the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee this weekend. I came back with new and delightful things. I found beautiful but expensive bling balls, tiny 6mm beads, interwoven with Aurora Borealis stones, that glitter and gleam, and woven wire, by my favorite wire people, http://www.parawire.com/.

Parawire provided me a piece of the jewelry puzzle, a woven wire chain, made of the same beautiful wire that I use every day. So it matches, fits right in. The combination cannot be beat.

So, here is a Grand Dutchess, larger than a regular Dutchess, but better, so a Grand Dutchess is appropriate. Let me know what you think...I know you're going to love it.
