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:
Let me know what you think, they are also for sale at my Etsy shop and even have curly tails!

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.
I then saw out each elephant with 2/0 saw blades or a blade if I’m lucky! I then use a small pointy tool to create the eye with a gentle tap with the hammer.
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)

New vlig post Lovely Vlog – Week 2 – Mum’s Bracelet Complete + …: https://youtu.be/AjYA7KjvmOE
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.
