New Tutorial in My Shop - Wire Wrap Daisy Ring

I first started making this dainty Daisy Ring exactly a year ago this month.
Didn't name it Daisy Ring then but always referred to it as sparkly ring instead.
Look here, here and here.

The tutorial is now available in my Etsy Shop. This link below will bring you there:

Tutorial will be downloadable immediately.
Now more waiting :)

This is a quick project.
Once you get the hang of it, you can complete one ring within 15 minutes.

Keep Busy, Blogging from Smartphone

This should keep me busy for many many hours. Lots and lots of Sparkly Rings are on the way.

I am testing out Blogger blogging app at the moment and if this post go live successfully, I may be using it a lot more in future.

The reviews on this app don't seems to be very positive so I am crossing my fingers and hope for the best.
Update: It works. I published successfully from my smartphone!
Happy Sunday my dear readers :)

Mayan Apocolypse! No...More Sparklies for Christmas

Today is suppose to be "the end of the world" according to predictions of the Mayan Apocalypse. Some of you may be believers but not me.
In fact I read in the paper this morning that the non believers include today ethnic Maya themselves, who are mostly Christian....hmmmm....

What exactly would happen I don't know but I am looking forward to tonight, tomorrow, Christmas, New Year including Chinese New Year, Valentine Day, etc. etc.

Whatever it is, lets hope it will not end today, tomorrow or forever.
Bring some sparks to Christmas and here are more wire wrap sparkly rings for your viewing pleasure.

These are jade wrapped with 14k gold filled wire and 3mm gold filled beads.

Of Failure, Pearls and Sparklies

Ah...I have been slacking in this posting department for a while now.
Inspiration seems to be taking a back seat for the last few months.
Few days ago I tried something "new", well not really "new" but failed miserably.
It was a request for wire names and I can't seems to get the letters right.
I thought it would be easy but I was wrong. Gave up altogether and feel very disappointed with myself.

Well, Christmas and New Year are just around the corner.
There are still few more pieces to work on and hopefully they all turn out beautiful.

At least these here turn out beautifully :)

Again, I have made lots of this sparkly wire wrap rings, if you have been following my postings. Probably the most popular and you are getting bored seeing the same rings again hahaha...

However, this ring is quite quick and easy to make. As such, it will make great last minute gifts, if you are a very last minute person like me.
Hehe! can't resist doing shameless self promotion here.
I have a step by step pictorial tutorial for this ring at my Etsy shop, click the link here - Sparkly Crystal Ring Tutorial

Simple Wire Wrap Rings

When I first started with wire wrap rings, this is the simplest method I started with.
You wouldn't believe how simple
it is until you try it out yourself.
Once you get the hang of this,
add it with your own creativity,
you can come up with a wire
wrap ring that suits your style.

For these rings here, I just added another loop around the beads/crystals.
Decorated the side/shanks with a wee bit of wire wrap loops to make it less boring to look at :)

Have a great weekend!

Herringbone Weaved Rings

When I managed to steal some time the other day, I revisited an older project and here is what I whipped up - few Herringbone Weaved Rings.
This is one of the techniques I fell in love with when I first started with this wire jewelry addiction. Eni has a free tutorial for it and it should be available at her JL site.

This ring variation was created by me back then, when I have not seen it done into a ring (now you see them everywhere! Can I say I made it popular?...wink! I am sure there are people who got something to say about this). I wrote a free tutorial for this ring and shared it with whoever were interested back then. You must be one of them who has gotten them...hehe... can't find the free tutorial in this blog anymore. I have since taken it down.

However, the tutorial is still available for Free if you purchase this other tutorial - the Caged Herringbone Weaved Bead. Yeah! my own variation to the Herringbone Weave.

The pearl HBW rings are quite pretty don't you think so?
Note to self - make more of them.

All the Glitters Wire Wrap Rings

How time flies. July is just a few days away.
In a blink of an eye half of 2012 is gone.
There were lots of plan for 2012 but looks like I have not been able and would not be able to fulfill lots of them. With only weekends for wire jewelry, sewing (yeah sewing! been at it since last year actually and planning to post something soon :) Stay tune), the boys and their activities, shopping, and many many other "hobbies", it is time to look back at my time management :) and priorities. Its going to be difficult, after all we only have 24hr a day.
Anyway, first thing first, here are some more sparklies or can I say Glitters, for your viewing pleasure.
These sparkly rings are wire wrapped with 14k gold filled wire and beads, similar with others made earlier. However, the wrapping for this batch is much simpler and straight forward.

 The pictures didn't do justice to these rings. They really glitter in "real life".

 Now you know why they really glitters in "real life" :)

Swarovski Pearls are Pretty

If I have the choice, I would always go for the real/original/natural pearls.
However, I am beginning to like the Swarovski pearls.
They look so much like the real pearl and all of them are perfectly rounded :)
There are few colors to choose from but I am sure this creamy colored ones would be more popular than the other colored ones....this is based on my experience with natural colored pearls.

How about you? Which one do you prefer?
The first two pictures below are Sparkly Wire Wrap Rings made of Swarovski pearls.

This bunch below are a mixture of Swarovski pearls and natural pearls.
Can you tell the difference between them in terms of color?

Closer view :) Can't tell by the color but their perfect roundness would give them away :)

Wire Wrap Rings, New Design

Sunday is almost gone and another busy week ahead.
I am not going to say a lot today.
Well, I haven't been talking a lot lately anyway :)
Just sharing two recently completed wire wrap rings.
One new dainty design, which is not that difficult to make if you have tried out my Sparkly Crystal Ring project. Instead of Swarovski crystals, I used 14k gold filed beads instead. Those in the pictures are all jade.
Needs more coordination though, while wrapping the wire around the ring shank to finish off the project. It gets easier the more rings you wrap :)
Feel free to ask if you have questions.

Twice Around the World Set

Its rainy days here in Kuching.
After 4 or 5 hours of rain this morning, the roadside drain is overflowed.
This rarely happen and I have a feeling lots of places in the city are flooded by now.
A friend got caught and stuck in the traffic jam on the way to work.
Hubby called to let me know not to go out this morning as most roads (on his way to work) are flooded and cars are stuck in between.
There goes my leave. I am suppose to get an official matter done this morning.
Anyway, this is a good opportunity to post my recent pretties for your viewing.
