This blog is kind of neglected lately...though I have been posting here at OrchidBliss :) Just because many of our orchids are blooming now.
That aside, today I am sharing Vera's creation which are based on my popular (hehe *wink*) Twice Around the World (TAW) Tutorial. It is always very nice to receive feedback from fellow students and wire jewelers after they created something out of my tutorials.
So, keep them coming please....and here are the pieces created by Vera.
Let me know what you think.
I think all of them are very beautiful with her own personal touch.
▼I told her and I am going to say it again. I especially like this earrings.
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?
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.
Stainless steel chain link and lobster claw clasp (non-tarnish, easy to clean and long lasting).
For the last few weeks I have not been very productive with my wire jewelry. There are few project ideas in the head but somehow time is not on my side, as usual ☹
Completed several commissioned pieces. Here's one of them - wire wrapped Swarovski Crystal bracelets. All of them wire wrapped with gold filled wire. Look simple enough but took me about 45 minutes to complete each.
That's roughly about 15 hours of work.

Hope to be wire wrapping more in the coming weeks.
