My first collaboration!

So, this week was a very big first for me! i have been taking advantage of the lockdown time to try to really grow and develop my Youtube channel as well as set up my new website and so much more!

First thing on my list?! Collaborate with a very talented chainmaille artist! The very fabulous Fleur Hastings. Not only is Fleur my lovely friend, but Fleur and i have worked together previously for Jewellerymaker, as well as shareing a common love for bare copper, metals, gemstones and sharks! so when we had a chance to work together on a collaboration piece I jumped at it!

Fleur works primarily in chainmaille but is also a very clever metal smith! for this project, i asked Fleur if she can come up with a chainmaille weave that will compliment the lampwork and wirework Pendant kit and tutorial that i have put together.

She came up with this beautiful inverted spiral chainmaille weave.....i love it!

Fleur creates beautiful chainmaille kits as well, so if you click on the pictures you will be taken to her beautiful website and a link to this kit! i have this kit, i received it yesterday and i will be making myself a necklace to go with my pendant!! (i will post updates!)

The kits for the pendant are on my website, so please go and have a look! they are limited and once gone will be gone!! these stunning handmade lampwork beads have been handcrafted especially for me by the very clever creeky beads!!!

all in all, i have had a very exciting and creative week!!! i wonder what next week will bring!?!?

happy crafting all xx
