It has been ages since I showed some creative process and although I show some newly made stuff often, the process is often so intense that we forget to take pictures :)
Today I was busy with a sterling silver necklace with a rough quartz, as silver's process is a little slower I remembered to take pictures shortly after starting.
After drilling the silver plate I stuck these cute handmade ball pins in it and soldered them to the plate, I had the pins placed at specific places according to the shape of the stone so that it will stay nicely in to place.
After that I marked the shape of the stone with a sharpy and sawed it accordingly, accentuating the shape of the stone in the silver.
After being in the pickle, it was washed cleaned in the tumbler.
Tadaaaa, the stone fits perfectly, it was already evening by the time the pendant was ready but to give you an idea :)
It also has a soldered bail at the back and I need to make the chain for it, but I am happy with the result :)

We have been a little quiet lately, actually extremely and unusually quiet! Time flew by so fast these past 2 weeks and here we are in 2015 already!
We have been very busy with coming up with new unique pieces which will slowly appear in the shops, even today the first day of the New Year new pieces are flying out of our hands, I guess we are in a good creative vibe, we just didn't get around to show it to you, which we will :)
Here by we are wishing all our readers a wonderful, happy and healthy New Year, may some of your dreams come true, but not all, as you have to keep some for the years to come :)

We want to share with you what we learn on our lessons. The Trabzon work is really hard and it will take a while till we have something to show here. But we are learning other cool techniques too.
This is one of the many types of braiding, done with the help of a small vice.
You put any even number of wires in the vice, depending on how wide you want your braid to be. In this case I used 10 wires. Divide the wires alternating up and down, here you see 5 wires bent up and 5 wires bent down.
Take the wire that is most left and under, bring it across all the way to the right pulling with all your might and fasten it at the right side in the vice.
Then take the first wire from the upper left side with your left hand and the first wire of the down side with your right hand, and cross them, inverting their positions.
Do the same thing with the second, third and forth pair of wires.
Remove the wire that you had fixed previously in the vice and cross it with the last remaining wire.
One goes up and one goes down.
Now all ten wires have changed position.
Pull outwards as hard as you can to smooth the wires
Open the vice slightly, push with your thumb till the wires are again flush with the jaws of the vice, and tighten again.
You have to do this after every row, but don't remove the braid off the vice till you are done.
This loosening and tightening again of the vice is tedious and time consuming, but you need to do it, in order to get a flat and even braid.
And than you start the following row by putting the utmost left-down wire across and fixing it in the vice.
This is the result. There is lot of room for improvement, my braid is by far not tight enough. It is really hard on the fingers!
Despite all the imperfections, Estella succeeded in making really cool stuff with my little braid!
