Summer made a brief appearance this year and now Winter is hanging around, threatening to mug Autumn of its allotted time. I had an idea to just make something that would make me smile, something to bring a little warmth and sparkle. This bracelet is make from 1.5mm silver plated copper non tarnish wire with a Sun Charm. And I must say, it looks really pretty on and makes me smile!
I know my last post had a different title, but think that from now on I will use ‘JewelleryImani’ to describe my ever growing collections.
As you can see, my current pieces have a spiral or swirly type vibe, which seems to be echoing my abstract art.
I thought I would start off this post with a photo of some of my Aluminium Wire bracelets, I just love the colours! Aluminium Wire comes in a large range of colours and gauges, from 0.8mm to the largest I have used which is 3.5mm. I especially like Light Green with Silver being a close second. This wire is light and easy to wear, maintains its brightness and does not tarnish.
All of the above bracelets were made with 2mm Aluminium Wire.
The bottom two bangles in this picture are made with 2mm wire, I used 3.5mm wire to make the top bangle.
I made these bracelets from 1.mm Aluminium Wire. Several strands were woven together to create this design.
For the last couple of months, I have discovered a new hobby, making jewellery from wire. I just love working with various types of wire to create rings, earrings and bangles, I never knew I could have so much fun, each piece is unique and I am always surprised at the finished result! The following photos are just a small selection of my work so far.

I have found a new creative passion, taking my love of metallic ink to a whole new level, designing and making my own jewellery, So far I have made earrings and a couple of chain bracelets and these rings are just a part of a growing collection.
