Filigree - how did I do it?

Sterling silver filigree....

Freeform hearts in sterling filigree. I am not good enough yet, let me make a few hundred... LOL!!!

This is it...

Tools, wire....!

Lets see: This is sterling silver:

The wire is a standard filigree wire.

I use a couple of common pliers to bend them.

So. Put the nice little roumded wires into the frame... and solder it.

Make jumprings, cut them, and... swirl! ...roll, bend....

Sorry! It should not be legal to take photos indoors wintertime!!!

Its not possible for me to make two of them the same11 I am out of my mind. On number two I loose my concentration...

So the roses. I bend a flat wire on a homemade jig.

Thats it. sorry for norwegian... but a picture tells it all.

Then: Polish, ppolish, polish.. oxide, polish...

A few of Auds beads. She did not agree with me whan I shopped them... I did :-)))

Have a nice day! *Trollsmed working* .

Red is great! Look what I got on my table...!

A tiny bead from the sun through the grey winter fog....

And I have attacked my red porcelain beads.. finally I made it!! Red glaze is not easy.

Dancing in Red... handmade porcelain, handmade sterling filigree ....

I love the handmade african beads from recycled glass. I buy them direct...

And with a little bit of handmade sterling, here I made a lariat...

One more... I am not sure wheter I am happy with it or not...

Red, more red... enough now Lise...
