My latest piece is done and will be going off to a new home next week. The Mookite and Jasper semi precious beads are encrusted onto a wired needlewoven base. I’m pleased with the warm neutral colours and I think it will go with loads of outfits. I looked up Mookite in my ‘Crystal Bible’ and it says it helps improve organisational skills and increases versatility. The perfect stone for the lady who will be wearing it!
I’ve been experimenting with Photoshop in order to try out some repeat patterns and colour schemes. When I was working as a graphic designer I used Photoshop a lot, but haven’t used it for jewellery ideas so this has been an interesting exercise. Below is a tiny stitched sample and my experiment from it in Photoshop. A good starting point for a collar style neckpiece I think.
My silversmithing course starts tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it goes.
