Just a quick post. This is a bracelet I have just recently made and one I have been thinking about and planning for some while. I wanted to make a delicate bracelet with lots of pretty flowers.
This is made with wire that I hammered and flowers that I cut out individually by hand, then shaped, filed and added a bead to to finish.

This post is to show how I work and how I make a pendant from start to finish.
With all of my jewellery I start off at the designing stage, I tend to have lots of ideas and keep these in a notebook. Sometimes I have an idea and get right on and make it, other times the idea sits untouched for ages and then I come back to it. I have lots of unmade ideas floating about as always!
This shows how I made a layered flower pendant. Once the design was sorted I begin by drawing the shapes I need on to a sheet of aluminium.
I then drill holes where they are needed and then cut these out with a piercing saw.
This is then filed and sanded to get rid of any markings, rough edges etc.
This could then be a pendant on its own, but for this one I was creating a layered pendant and so wanted to add other layers to it.
I did the same to make a smaller aluminium flower and also cut a middle sized flower from plastic. I also choose a bead that I wanted at the centre.
These are the finished pieces layed out ready to be put together. I then layered these up how I wanted them and glued them together.
I have been planning on making this ring for quite some while and have now finished it. I have worn it out a few times 2 and lovin it!
I made the ring from an old recycled fork handle and the flower from aluminium sheet and added a pearl bead for the centre.
I can make this item as a pendant or customise one for you, for more info contact me at:
