Jewellery and bujutsu?


This blog is about two important parts of my life: martial arts (under the Dentokan umbrella) and making jewellery.

Please join in - there'll be ponderings on processes, and pictures of processes (maybe not in my gi, though...) but in both jewells and bujutsu I've got sooo much to learn, and waffle on about.

Commission sent, received and liked!

It's a little nerve wracking to make something to order, especially if contact is online only. But I've just finished a set for a lady in Bucks, following email communication only and it has gone very well.

The necklace, earring and bracelet set is to be worn at a wedding, and is called Alice. There is a wee teapot charm amongst the bracelet beads ... so you see the connection?

It's based on an earlier necklace, called Space and used
the same satin wave beads with swarovski, grey silver foil and general pattern. The bracelet used 70 wrapped beads so is wonderfully shaky and jangly.

Feedback from the lovely lady included 'really listened to what I wanted', and 'professionally made and finished'. Wonderful to hear. She is also going to spread the word if and when she gets the chance at the wedding. Marvelous!

One lesson from email commissions - descriptions, questions and 'through the process' pics took longer than I imagined to carry out. Therefore profit dropped. But overall, a good experience!
