So here are some sketches from my sketch pad. Sadly my artistic side is limited to jewellery, my handwriting is atrocious and my sketches aren't much better!

This pendant is supposed to be similar to one I've already made but with more gold on the front.

AKA this one.

This is also a square pendant but I've been playing with the idea of making a silver pendant with some resin "flowing" thru it as well as some set gemstones.

This idea I like the best but will also be the hardest. Its a silver ring (considering making it in gold) made out of loads of thin pieces shaped in different ways and then adding small gemstones. The sketch is of the ring before shaping it into an actual ring.

This is obviously a heart (one of my few sketched were you can see what I actually intended to make :-)) and the lines running thru it is supposed to be melted gold.

Bespokes jewellery

I haven't made jewellery for what feels like ages (and that's not counting the small beading project's I made at home because that's not really making jewellery now is it), but I just don't have the time with me working as many hours as possible & getting ready for my trip.

Adding in the normal hassles of live (cooking ,cleaning, sorting out bills) I just don't have the time!

And I'm starting to miss it something terrible, it appears I really can't go that long without making jewellery so I will just have to figure something out to be able to squeeze it in. Especially now when I need to make some extra money so anything I have time to make and sell would definitely help.

And working as much as I am is slowly melting my brain into this big pile of guu!

But on a happier note!
I have received a bespoke order on a ring! Will order stone today the when receiving it will work out material cost. That's because the customer in question is interested in having it in gold and I generally don't work in gold. This is for 2 reasons.
1: I prefer silver.
2: Gold is more expensive.

But if someone wants gold I will definitely look into it (because I can work in gold, that's not an issue).

Anyways once I've made it I will probably post some pictures. The customer made up the design herself so I hope it will turn out OK. :-)
Hopefully this will be start of me getting more time to make jewellery!
