Worth the Wait

At long last Din had sometime to take pictures of my creations. It took a while since he came from Malaysia. He came back exhausted, sickly and stressed out. To top it all, the first Monday when he got back he had to be at the office to entertain a visitor from the project he was into. That first week back was hell for both of us. Luckily the second week was a bit slow both in the home front and at the office. Yesterday, I was so happy when he told me that he will be taking pictures of my work as soon as he gets up. Yay!

And so here they are:This was the first ever wirework I did. After burying myself at Donna Spadafore's site and at Jewelry Lessons by Eni Oken and friends, here is the finished product. I used a murano glass like centerpiece, copper coated wire for the base wire and copper wire for weaving. Thanks Donna for your inspiration and tutorials. Thanks too at for the tips, techniques, tutorials and the gallery. Cheers!

My second attempt. I think it turned out to be just fine. It took me the whole evening to make this. I used murano glass like for the center bead, aluminum wire as base wire and copper wire for weaving. I really had a superb time coiling manually. It took my breath away! Maybe I should try coiling with a drill sometime or better yet get myself a coiling gizmo! Saves time but would strip me off the happiness I feel for every coil I make. Haha!

It was really worth the wait. Thanks Honey for the great pictures. I owe you one!
