Pugs!

As you may know I have two very lovely pugs. A puppy (who’s not much of a puppy anymore, only in spirit) an Gizmo who is 8 years old.

So I thought I would make some cute pug earrings in honour of my lovely pugs and yes I have been a bit obessed with making earrings at the moment.

See my handmade tiny sawn pug earrings below:

Elephant Earrings

I thought I would show the process of how I make the tiny elephant earrings.

First I doodle what I would like make and then draw it in illustrator an print out the design to the right size. I then cut out the design and stick it to the silver using spray mount.

Next I gave the elephants a rub down with emery paper. I placed them on a doming block to give them a slightly curved shape.

The little elephants are now ready to be made into earrings. With a small flame a little bit of solder an flux I added the backing posts.

The earrings then went for a tumble in the barrelling machine and then had a quick polish on the polishing mop to give them some extra shine! (Please excuse the bad photos)

Double Twist Silver Bangle

I decided to go back to my favourite style which is shiny twisted things. So I made this double twisted bangle for my mum’s birthday present, as whatever rubbish I make she always loves it an is very grateful.

I started with two 4mm pieces of square wire, bent each piece into a peg shape. I then hammed the middle down when the bend occurs and then pulled out the ends to make the twist. Next I soldered the two wire pieces together and sanded it down so it looked like 1 piece.

See the photos below, any comments would be greatly appreciated.
