Handwoven chain- the whole process

So I finally finished this piece I made for a friend. It took me a while, and I enjoyed it so much. I’ve made a few of these for myself, but this is the first commissioned chain, and I’m glad it has a nice home with Bill.

I tried to document every step of the long process, but a few slipped through the cracks. You get the idea though, right? I like to see the progression of the metal, so fascinating.

Loose ends

I started this chain who knows when, I already forgot…  These kinds of projects I do for myself because they take a lot of time & effort and, sometimes, a ton of silver.  And I love the look and feel of classic handwoven chains. The ones I have I wear all the time, so the investment was paid off a long time ago.

I’ll post a photo of the stone clasp when I finish it.

New necklaces

These colorful necklaces will be in the shop very soon (some of them already are)! They’re made with waxed nylon cord and doughnut beads. The necklace is very durable and adjustable, so you can wear it long or short, your choice!

Black and gold

My gold plated Skinny Zebra ring was featured in this lovely treasury. I love the combination of black and gold, don’t you?

Web page- in process

I’ve been tweaking my Cargo Collective page so that it’ll eventually be my main site. So far so good, I think. I need to read a little about CSS since most of what I’ve done so far involved a lot of google searches, trial and error,  and luck.  One of these days I might get all fancy and use my own domain.

I really love my new logo <3, it looks so pretty with the jewelry pictures!
