Me again! ;)
Finally, I've finished my Blackie!
It is a commission piece. I was gven a task to make something black with bronze, small and elegant, wearable after work to a bar to take a glass of whine with friends. Don't you just love these customers who give you completely free hands and just allow your creativity to flow?
Blackie is a composition of coralls and russian leaves wrapped around a large Czech crystal pendant. It asked for a sturdy rope, which I wanted to form a spiral to match swirls around the focal. Now, listen to me carefully: I HATE SPIRAL BRICKSTITCH ROPE and will never make another one again unless I absolutely have to. Because it takes AGES. And it is incredibly sensitive to the tension of your thread. Making the focal was a great fun, but making that particular sort of rope was a definitely wrong call. However, it looks great together (IMHO, where "H" stands for humble) ;).
This is it for today!
