Something A Little Bit Different

Predominately the items that I currently create are centred around charms and macrame jewellery. So I thought I would add something a little bit different in to my Etsy store….

Macramé Bracelets

I’ve really been enjoying learning how to make macramé items, and I’ve now moved on to making macramé bracelets. I’ve got plenty of other ideas of things I’d like to try, but I’d thought I would post what I’ve created so far. I’ve made a number of items, both in a single cord colour and also in two cord colours. I have found it gives the bracelet a completely different look and feel when you add more than one cord colour.

First up, are the spiral bracelets that are created by using half a square knot, which creates the spiral effect. In this case I made the spiral go in the same direction throughout the entire bracelet, although it is possible to create sections spiralling in one direction and then the other.

Next up, are the bracelets where I used the square knot in an alternating manner to create this pretty dainty pattern. The green and pink bracelets were a custom order.

Lastly, I’ve created a number of items using the square knot, either by itself or with other components like rings and beads to create different looks.

I have other ideas I’d like to try, one of which is to create a more personalised macrame bracelet utilising letter beads. Plus, I’d also like to try out different macrame knots to create some more intricate patterns, particularly making use of several colours at once as I really like the look that can be created, as I find it really emphasises the patterns created by the knots.

Purple Wyvern Jewels On The High Street!

As of last Saturday, Purple Wyvern Jewels can be found on the high street. A selection of my jewellery and bookmark items can be found in the Community Pop Up Shop located in the High Chelmer Shopping Centre in Chelmsford, UK.

The Community Pop Up Shop, makes use of an empty retail shop whilst raising money for charity and giving local artists and crafts people an opportunity to show off their items to a wider audience. The Community Pop Up Shop was originally open back in March, and had expected to be only open for two weeks due to lease reasons, but ended up running for eight weeks, before having to close. It’s now back again in a slightly different location within the High Chelmer Shopping Centre and this time I’ve taken the opportunity to showcase some of my creations there. (I don’t have any photos of the shop to share, as I forgot to take my camera with me, so will hopefully add a picture or two when I next pop by the shop.)

Included amongst my jewellery items, are some children’s bracelets that aren’t currently available elsewhere. My little boy, has been asking for some time now for me to make some jewellery for him, which I finally got around to a little while ago. The elastic bracelet I made for him, is made from plastic beads in white, with teal and a splash of orange and yellow being in sparkly glittery colours. Here’s my little boy even being a willing model for me:

Tuesday Treasury – Canada

Every week my little boy’s preschool does a different theme. Recently their overall theme has been countries and this week they were covering Canada and USA. Given that it was Canada Day on the 1st, I thought I’d do a red and white theme of items consisting of Etsy sellers from Canada.

New Jewellery Items In Store & Next Event

In preparing for the Pamper Party Event that I attended at the end of last month, I made quite a number of new jewellery items. Unfortunately, the event was a lot quieter than hoped, and therefore only a small amount of people attended. So now I have lots of extra items to list in my Purple Wyvern Jewels shop. I have managed to photograph some of them and have been listing a few of them.

Pendants

Green Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

Green Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver

I brought the green agate gemstone in this Green Agate Pendant in Sterling Silver from a fellow Etsy seller. I purchased two of these tear drop shaped agate stones. I was looking for something to turn in to a birthday present for my Mother-In-Law and whilst emerald is the modern birthstone for May, agate along with emerald is a traditional birthstone for May. Agate is also the birthstone for the Zodiac sign Gemini (21 May – 21 Jun). So I chose this agate stone due to it’s lovely green colour, as unfortunately emerald would have been too expensive for me to use for the present. One of these was given away as a gift and the other is currently available for purchase in my shop.

I have two more new pendants listed for sale in my shop, with a couple more yet to be photographed and listed. The first pendant features a dyed purplish red crazy lace agate gemstone. Although, this particular stone doens’t really have any purple tones to it, it has more of a red colouring with some white tones to it. The second pendant features a fire agate gemstone, which has tones of white, ivory, peach and orange to it, along with an unusual crackled pattern.

Bracelets

I have three new bracelets listed in my shop, with one more that I need to list. The first bracelet features small green agate tear drop shaped gemstones, that coordinate with my Green Agate Waterfall Necklace in Sterling Silver and Green Agate Wire Wrap Sterling Silver Earrings. The second bracelet features regtangular faceted amethyst gemstones with sterling silver beads, that coordinate with my Amethyst Wire Wrapped Sterling Silver Necklace. The last bracelet is a unisex wrap bracelet that features tiger coco beads.

Next Selling Event

I’ve been looking around for other local events to sell my jewellery at, and I’ve found a couple that are very local and happen on a regular/semi-regular basis, but unfortunately they are booked out at the moment. Hopefully spaces will become available for those at some point. In the meantime, I’ve found an Indoor Market over in Maldon, Essex that happens the first Saturday of each from 9am – 2.30pm. So on the 2nd July I will be there selling my wares.
