I designed a simple causal bright set using chain mail and coral beads.
The bracelet is full of beads hanging from the outside of the weave.
I found very decorative to embellish it with beads.
I like to use the simple weave of chain mail in a pyramidal shape.
This time I chose to use red coral beads matches with red leather for the pendant.
The earrings are smaller but in the same design.
Enjoy looking or buying them.
This lesson shows how to develop chain mail brooch using fan shapes.
I show you how to embellish the finished work in order to add an extra color.
This tutorial allows you to use it in your finished jewelry for personal and selling use, but not to mass produce, lend or sell the tutorial itself.
The red and white day
is approaching. The day when most of people remember they love. I say we love everyday and remembering this makes us breathing, feeling, living. But Valentine’s day
is a coutume so let’s keep it like this – a pretext to give and receive presents. I present you some of my jewelry work for this celebration mixing the specific colors with the valuable materials as Swarovski crystals
, silver wire, Rivoli.
I propose you to learn together the first steps in the byzantine chain mail weave.
Hello. The week-end is approaching and the jewelry box wins a temporary most important place in your duties. Let’ open it together and see what we find today!
On my side of the world the sun is shinning today, it is quite warm and there is a good idea to have a walk in the part. In the evening is possible to meet some friends in a pub talking about the last skiing attempts (the snow is few this year here).
I propose you a fabric brooch small and discrete, barely covering the lapel. I used brown cotton fabric and light pink silk ribbon. It is part of a set will be use both in casual or classic outfits. The set composes a necklace , earrings, ring and brooch. On my opinion they could be worn together for a classic deux piece but for jeans and sweater outfits I’d use only the necklace and either the ring or the earrings. The brooch can stay on the lapel of the coat.
The flower design I created is between formal and modern. The brown stylized roses are more “artistic” than “sweet”and they give strong and firmness to the person wearing them.
I hope you enjoy!
The holiday is gone, the special dresses will be locked back in the closet and he casual suits are “welcome” again.
Any woman becomes easily bored by her “old”clothes and wants new ones. There are moments when getting new clothes every day could be a little difficult :D, but it is easier and more creative to decorate what you have them with jewelry.
I designed these smart casual earrings using the chain mail weave – organized and repetitive finished with red rice beads of coral. I created a diamond shape to bring a feminine touch to the jumper rings.
There are also pendant and bracelet options using this weave and beads decoration I am going to tell you about next time.
Take care and assort you well!
I love ammonites and I design them in many of my jewelry. This one is inspired from Eni Oken’s style. I used nuances of crystals from translucent to dark blue. I wrapped them in an ammonite shape. The pendant diameter is 5x5cm. The lace is silver sterling. 50cm .
3 hours work.
Material used: silver sterling, Jablonec crystals
Byzantine chain mail made with brass jumper rings. Variation of the technique decorated with faceted purple and translucent crystals (8mm). There are bracelet, earrings and ring for the set. Bracelet 18 cm.
I call this versatile jewelry “smart causal”. it looks bright accessorizing a “deux pieces” but looks “cool over a jeans and a “col a rouler”.
