Well, it's not Jade and it's not a ladder,
but that's what I'm calling this bracelet I made
at this week's jewellery class -
Jade Ladder Braclet.
This was rather time consuming and a bit fiddly,
so I finished it off at home.
It started off with two lengths of chain
(measuring around the wrist plus 3cm)
The two lengths were attached to a
jump ring and clasp.
Some wirework was involved - creating a little
coil at the end of some silver wire (16 gauge)
the wire was then threaded through one of the links
of one of the chains, beads added, threaded through
the other chain and another coil made to finished that 'step'
of the 'ladder' off.
As you can see, I found it a little difficult
lining up the two sides of the chain so each step
looks a bit on the wonky side!
When it's on though, it does look ok (I think!)
Here's the finished article.
Practice makes perfect, so I'll keep at it!
Thanks for looking :)
