Not made by me!

Morning all and I've set this to post whilst I am at work, trying to be more organised!
Mmmmm.  I wonder how long it will last?
It's the 1st of October too, when did that happen?

Now this is not something I have made but something my Mum bought me whilst in Aviemore at the Harley rally.  These are made by a lovely lady called Kate with a lot of patience.
Why do I say that?
Well, these are made with jump rings, yep, I said jump rings.  All are attached together one by one.
Sometimes you've just got to appreciate the work involved in a handmade item and share the love.
Don't you agree?

I am not a religious person but just loved the work on this cross.  You need to get up close to it to appreciate how many rings are involved and the bracelet is just lovely on.
Check out Kate's website here at Dragonsmaille.
I'm sure you'll agree she make some beautiful jewellery.

More from me tomorrow.  x

Oh Erika you are so right, what a lot of work has gone into these pieces. She must have endless patience to sit and attach all those jump rings together. Hope work is not to bad. Hazel xx

Oh! My! Word! Erika,
The work in those pieces is amazing.
I have lots of Jump rings, wish I was clever enough to use them up like that.

Hi Erika,
now these are really unusual and lovely too.
Sounds like very fiddly work to me, and a great deal of patience.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
