Here are some newer versions of the wooden leaf pendants I blogged about a little while ago.
It’s been a very very very long time since I’ve posted, and I’m sorry! I’ll really try to post more now that I’m free from school for about 18 months! Longest summer holiday ever. I’m so happy to not be going back anytime soon, even though I’ll miss it. Also, I was in Portugal for ten days, so I couldn’t exactly post when I was there, seeing as I was in a house/tent in a rural mountain valley with no internet. It was lovely.
I’m making a lot of these, with maybe the intention of setting up an Etsy to sell them? I just don’t know if anyone would be interested. Would any of you guys be interested? They probably wouldn’t be over €15 so not exactly bank breaking. The backs can also have a custom design on them 🙂
Here’s some I’ve made lately (back and front).
I’m currently a tad obsessed with making these. They’re really easy and pretty. I just carved the wood into a leaf shape and then burned in the designs, a leaf on the front and other random naturey stuff of the back. I’ve made about four and I’m on another one right now!
I love beech nuts. To look at, to eat, everything. The only thing better is the tree itself. So why not use two of my favourite materials to make a pair of earrings?
A piece of copper wire stretches underneath the segments and holds the top in place, so they’re pretty secure.
I love making things out of natural findings. I was trying to make something similar with a hazelnut shell but it didn’t work ah well.
I found this awesome little watch face in Scotland. I was at a little fair in Falkland and there was a man selling old jewellery. I immediately saw this and my heart lit up. I could see uncountable ways to make this into many things.
I took it to the man and asked him how much it was, and he replied ‘oh, that old thing’s not good for anything. You don’t need to pay for it!’
I slightly melted inside and so as soon as I got home I made this using the same wirework technique as I used on those complicated wirework pendants a while ago but I just didn’t make it quite as complex as I only used one thickness of wire and so it didn’t involve too much work.
I also made it double sided so that both sides could be used because they’re both really pretty.
I’ve had an Etsy account for a while now, but only this morning did I finally make listings! So if anyone wants to buy any of my jewellery, I’m in the process of putting it up now. I think I will also make dreamcatchers and other things for it. These are the two items I have listed so far, but I’m in the process of putting up more.
I made these earrings a while ago as a thank you present. I cut out the shapes of the leaves and then used a wood burning tool to darken the veins, sides and back of the earrings.
Also sorry for not posting at all, I’ve just been busy with summer and all!
