Minlet - Garnet, Sensual

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

Another two Minlet wire wrapped with faceted Garnet.
My birthstone and I am running out of this faceted gemstones already.

These Minlets here are wire wrapped with two different chains. One is with box link stainless steel chain while the other is curb link, also stainless steel chain.
I prefer the box link chain :)
How about you?

Sunday, October 05, 2014

These two Minlets were made for an old friend whom I lost contact with for a while.
She saw my Whatsapp profile picture of an almost similar Minlet and the rest is history.

Material:

  • Stainless steel box chain link and lobster claw clasp.
  • Gemstones - 6mm Amethyst, 5mm faceted Garnet and 5mm gold pearl.
  • Length - about 7 inches (18 cm).
These two Minlets are without additional jump rings as she gave me her exact measurement.

Minlet - Pearl for Wisdom

Friday, October 03, 2014

William's requested for this Minlet.
A farewell gift for his Class Teacher who is retiring this week.
He passed it to her this morning but not sure about her reaction to this gift.
I hope she likes it.

Pearl is for Wisdom and I think all teachers are full of wisdom.
Their contribution to us and our children are priceless.
And this little gift is how he shows his appreciation to his teacher.

Material:

  • Stainless steel chain link and lobster claw clasp (non-tarnish, easy to clean and long lasting).
  • Pearl - 6mm.
  • Length - about 7 inches (18 cm). 
  • Adjustable to 8 inches as I added 6 jump rings.

Well this Minlet belongs to me, Yours Truly. Been wearing it for many months now.

One of the first, before I even call them Minlet. A bit of variation where Garnet (my birthstone :)) and Amethyst beads is wire wrapped close to the clasp.

Introducing MinLet - Bubbly and Vivacious

Thursday, September 18, 2014

I am not very good at naming my wire jewelry creations so took me a while to name this bracelet collection. This is a very minima or minimum designed wire wrap bracelet.
Just the way I like it and am sure a number of you also have the same preference *wink*.

So, the word minima, minimum, minimal or min must be in the name. Not forgetting the "bracelet" word as well. First, I was going to name it "Min'm Bracelet" but I think it is kind of long. Then I shortened it to "Min'mLet". I like this name but is a bit of a tongue twister and I don't want to get your tongue entangled and twisted just trying to mention the name.

Finally decided on naming it simply Minlet (Minimum + Bracelet).
So, here goes the first batch of Minlet by WireBliss - Bubbly and Vivacious because they now belonged to two bubbly and vivacious girls.

Material:

  • Stainless steel box chain and lobster claw clasp (non-tarnish, easy to clean and long lasting).
  • Swarovski Crystals - 4mm and 6mm Bicone AB color, 8mm purple crystal
  • Length - about 7 inches (18 cm). Adjustable length by adding jump rings.
