Handmade jewelry, Maille

.:: Previews ::.

Update (04/17/2916): Blue Buddha Boutique is closing its door permanently. The link to their website (below) is no longer active.

So, here are the pieces I was working on when I wrote this blog post >>> http://wp.me/p1KZjL-m7

1.

Captive inverted round weave, with grossgrain ribbon.

This one might very well be my very first original chain maille weave. I did some online research and couldn’t find a similar weave elsewhere.

As usual, I make the necklaces using Blue Buddha Boutique‘s premium anodized aluminum jump rings; and the pearls I are Swarovski Crystal Pearls

The crystal pearls have tiny drill holes on them. They aren’t very visible unless you look really closely at them. And, if you want to hide the tiny drill holes, you can push/poke at the pearl a bit so the hole will be hidden by the handwoven chain that hold the pearls snugly.

I realize that some people might not be bothered by the tiny drill holes; but, since I cannot find any other material that gleam as beautifully (yet?), I decided to use them nonetheless.

I’m still looking for better materials, though

Stay tuned :)
