  • found me a hammer

    I ordered some things from Lavidalerie and she kindly sent me some earwires called "get me a hammer", so i got me a hammer and one of those very cute little anvils and had a bash, and made these which were also inspired by MissGeorges chalcedony earrings

    then got carried away with the hammer and started making links and made this necklace, again with the chalcedony and tiny beads of amethyst, blue topaz, peridot and citrine

    then carried on and made my own earwires and these moonstones and the same little beads

    i am loving my hammer they are all a bit wonky but its fun

        Beautiful! It's amazing isn't it at how one can be so creative with what is essentially a blunt instrument! . . did it make ya feel good bashing away with the hammer? Bet it did!

        I saw a pair of earrings on Etsy the other day . . spiral shaped . . made from S/silver wire . . they had been hammered flat.

        But I'm thinking it won't stop at the earwires will it? . . cos you could do a whole style in this way . . pendant drops . . bangles . . earring drops . . etc etc etc.

                Hi Gail - The earrings are gorgeous, you make me feel such a twit I would never have thought of using the earwires like that, this was how I designed them to be used but yours look better.

                ps "Get me a hammer!" free earwires offer ends end April, Mays free offer is going to be some sort of sterling silver & semi-precious bead dangle.
