Kiwiken's Blog

Yes, i now have a blog: http://kiwiken.wordpress.com/ I thought it's better to write about what I'm working on somewhere else than on DevianART, so I don't spam my watchers. Those who want to read all the nonsense I write can go there and have a look, but this journal will probably not be continued ;) And the rest can just look at the finished jewelry here :) My groups: #blue-club (https://www.deviantart.com/blue-club) :iconDevious-Jewellery: :iconJewelry-Makers-Guild: :iconJewelryClub:

Lariat Love!

Lariat Love!

I love Lariat necklaces. You don't know what that is? OK, I'll try to explain. A "lariat" is the leather sling that cowboys use to catch cattle ("Lasso" in german). In a necklace, it means that instead of having a clasp in the back, it just loops around itself - in front. The traditional style is just a single strand of leather, pearls or chain with decorative dangles on both ends. If it's short, it is tied in front with a knot, like this one: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30374450&ref=cat3_gallery_11 If it's longer, it can be worn as above, or doubled with both ends going through the loop, like this: http://www.etsy.

Fishing lure charms

Fishing lure charms

I recently discovered fishing lures as "bezels" for polymer clay charms. Still need to improve on them, but the first trial pair of earrings turned out OK. They come in different metallic tones like golden (brass), copper and silver (nickle), which go very well with jewelry. They also come in different sizes, ideal for earrings or pendants. I can't take credit for this clever idea, as I found it in Tina Holden's blog: http://beadcomber.blogspot.com She also offers similar "french spinner blades" in her artfire shop. But I got mine from a fisheries store round the corner. I really need to find an online supply though, if I want to make more
