New pieces

I have spent the weekend (or at least part of it, did spend some time playing in the snow) making some new pieces of jewellery. I have spent quite of bit of time sketching and drawing out ideas and thinking about making, but not actually getting round to it. But this weekend I made some time and sat down and started making. I did a bit of experimenting and trying out the ideas that I had drawn down.
I am very happy with one of the pieces, which seems to have come out better than I was expecting (nice when that happens). That's this one below.

I started this pendant by curving the wire into the shape I wanted, I then hammered it flat. I also hand cut the flower and heart charms. I then attached all of this to the wire with a few beads. This one was a bit of an experiment, so quite glad it worked out. Have a few more like this planned 2!
The next piece I created was this butterfly cut pendant. I cut out the shape and bent it so that it became 3D. This pendant is made from aluminium which was drilled, cut, filled and sanded to finish.

I then went on to make some more flowers. I made this flower pendant from two hand cut aluminium flowers and put a pearl bead at the centre.

Last, but not least, I made this larger pendant from aluminium, it has a layer of recycled plastic and then another aluminium flower with a bead centre. This is larger and so make a bit more of a statement, but is still subtle in colour.
