Yesterday I was too lazy to work with my wire. Instead I managed to read all my emails and then watched my favourite cooking programmes on tv, cooking being just on equal footing with jewellery making! After that straight to the kitchen to get dinner ready. I wish I could say it was masterchef class, alas the couscous was soggy and the chicken overdone! But it was edible.
Today was straight back to my bridal project at hand; the bracelet is almost completed. It took a while to figure out the correct ring size to do romanov on 8mm Swarovski crystals without the rings bunching up into a cupshape. The bracelet alone took 160 rings. Will see how many I need for the necklace, must be over 400. Which means I still have to coil 8 metres of wire by hand and cut the rings, again by hand. This is definitely not the most exciting aspect of the work! What is exciting is the finished product, when everything has come together as planned.
There is one romanov bracelet I made a while ago, so I post a picture of it for all those who have not tried it yet!
