My First Attempt at Wirework Roses

Hello Everyone

It was my sister's birthday this last week, and I wanted to make a ring for her.

I found a tutorial for lovely wirework roses and decided to have a go at those (I will add a link when I can find the tutorial again - it was on this blog - updated - I found the link to the tutorial here.)  I made my first one into a stretchy bracelet with Black Tourmaline (October's birthstone - well I think it's supposed to be pink tourmaline really but I didn't have any of that).  And then I made a ring - but I'm not showing you the ring shank as it's not very tidy LOL!  I think I might just put a ring mandrel on my Christmas list.

And this is the card I made, using a Saturated Canary image, called Belle.  I've coloured her with Promarkers.  I loved the paper so I didn't want to cover it up with too many layers or embellishments, so just added a punched flower, a pearly stem which is barely visible in this slightly blurred photo, and a Lakeland sentiment.

I would like to enter this card in this week's Crafts and Me Challenge which is Anything Goes.

I think that's enough from me.  It's very doubtful that I'll have chance to create anything this week as I have three nights out at meetings for work and will then have three sets of minutes to get typed up quickly - I already have two sets outstanding!

I would love to have another attempt at wirework roses - and I might even make some small ones to add to a card sometime.

So I'll love you and leave you :)  Have an enjoyable week.

Love, Andrea xx



Gorgeous Andrea !!
