Why I Love to make Metal Jewelry

Firstly because it is Addictive and a whole lot of fun. And a lot more fuel for creativity than other forms of jewelry making that I have tried. With metal, it is a whole world of possibilities ahead of me. I take a wire and twist it and turn it and coil it. Do whatever comes to my mind. And the types of designs one can make is endless.

The only challenge is while making earrings. i.e. creating a piece identical to the one that has already been created. It involves a great deal of patience and concentration. One blow of hammer delivered harder than the other and you have to start from the beginning. But the end result is satisfying. 

Time for pictures of the brass (and a little copper) earrings I recently made:






How are they? Which ones do you like the most? Tell me so that I can bring better designs to you. Thanks :)

Banners and signage for handmade jewelry exhibitions

Every time there is an exhibition or a craft show coming up, my mind races with thoughts on how I can put up a good display with the resources that I have handy. I have a particular disdain for the typical metal stands and plastic boxes that seem the be the norm these days. I my opinion they looks very impersonal. And being a starving artist and all that I cannot even afford to spend crazy amount of money on the fancy parrot cages and mannequins. And my constant quest to achieve a --- between innovative and inexpensive ideas does not stop at jewelry display ideas. It extends to displaying the name of my brand. I hate flex boards, so that is out. And most banners and streamers I have made from chart papers using crayons and sketch pens usually seem to fade away in the bling and bright lights around at a craft show.

These are the things I have made and used in the past…. 





This time I went and got these rolled up black boards…. they served as perfect banners for my stall,.. Not only that- I could rewrite something new or draw newer designs everyday!! 
Trust me, I am hooked on to these and not letting them go for a long time.. :)


So who all agree that handmade=awesome \m/ ??
