After the success of my copper chainmaille bracelet last week I started a sterling silver version..... well I got it all finished and took pictures with a view to adding it to the website....only to discover that when I weighed it, it was 9g....Arrrggghhh!! In order to sell the bracelets I have to now get registered with the London Assay office....at considerable expense and start getting my pieces hallmarked....I'll even get those below 7.78g done to give my customers peace of mind. So although it's an expense I hadn't considered so early in the business I am going to go for it. Makes me feel like a real jewellery maker tho so am now quite excited!!
Anyway....here is the 'offending' bracelet
I so enjoy making these.....even tho I can't seem to do any other weaves....the persian 2-1 eludes me despite looking at several tutorials.....will have to stick to the byzantine.
Am disappointed that we didn't get any snow this weekend....just heavy rain :( so I am going now to head on over to Handmade Monday over at 1st Unique Gifts to see if any fellow crafters had more wintery weather than we did here. Massive thanks again to Wendy for doing this now for a whole year!!! Happy Birthday Handmade Monday!!
Bye for now
