Just some jewellery creations I managed to do during our recent Cape Town Trip. With Conroy attending 10 to 11 hour sessions, four days in a row and only getting back to the hotel room at 6:30pm, I had a few hours every afternoon to at least get rid of some creative urges. So here's some proof that I haven't been totally useless for the 5 days. The above necklace are one of my favourite creations and it was the first time that I used those little silver ring spacers on a necklace, which I just love. The rest of the necklace has been created with glass pearls, tube beads and sarovski crystals.
Also managed a few watches. Wanted to do these antique looking watches for a while and at last I got round to creating them. The glasses I used as props are inheritance pieces from my late Mom and Dad. Just love the bubble effects they create. They of course also look great filled with wine.
