The headpins were made with the idea of creating my version of Sally's bib necklace that was on the cover of the April/May issue of Step by Step Wire Jewelry. Here is my necklace.
I used ceramic beads, along with some small copper beads to make the links on my cool enameled headpins. I decided to make the chain after seeing the beautiful chains my blog friend Patti has been making. So, I used 16 gauge copper wire and made infinity links which I linked together with jump rings. The hook is a variation of an infinity link that I saw used on a necklace on Pinterest. I wish I could remember when I saw it and who made it, but unfortunately, it's been a while ago. Here are a couple of detail pictures.
The headpins and the chain.
I also made a pair of earrings from two enameled beads.
So, there you have some of my adventures in enameling on my own! There are more pieces coming! I really love doing it. Its a very fast technique and you can end up with a lot of different components is a very short amount of time. Its very addictive!
I hope you are enjoying the quickly passing summer. Have a wonderful week. Thank you for stopping by and welcome to any new readers. I'm so happy to have you join me!
