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.
I have been keeping up with the vlogging and have made a new post today.
Let me know what you think, thanks :)
This is my very first Vlog! I hope you like it.
Any comments or advice are very welcome, it’s so tricky making your first video and getting out there!
In Cambodia we visited the Artisans Angkor craft centre where they create the most beautiful art work, they give work to less fortunate young adults who live rural areas and train them to make wonderful pieces and have a great training program.
The Artisans Angkor offers good working conditions and social advantages to its employees and has now opened 42 workshops in Siem Reap province and provides employment to over 1300 people, including more than 900 artisans.
It’s wonderful that tourists can walk round and see the locals hard at work and it was just fascinating to see the artists hard at work.
Artisans Angkor has become a real showcase of Khmer workmanship for its silk fabrics and garments, stone and wood carving, lacquer ware, polychrome products, silver plating and silk painting.
Below are some photos I took on my show around and I really enjoyed seeing the process of how each item was made.
Above is a step by step guide of how they create these lovely stone elephants.
I really enjoyed my visit and if your ever in Cambodia its a must take trip
