My very first attempt in making jewellery

Hi everyone,
Like I said, this is my first try with jewellery and I can say  that I'm totally hooked already! LOL
And this is not all, it is also my first try with art silver clay! It is FANTASTIC!!! Pure magic and sooo easy to work with! I'm really delighted, this is soo much fun!
For this necklace I have used silver wires 18 and 22 gauge, silver chain, lapis lazuli and turquoise beads and art silver clay for making the butterfly. After I fired the butterfly I oxidized it a bit in a liver of sulphur solution. The colours are truly beautiful. The wire bead and toggle are made after taking a class with Lisa Niven Kelly at
I hope you'll like it as much as I enjoyed making it!

And some details:

Thanks for your visit,

Have a lovely Sunday, lots of love,
Sanda xx

I can't believe this is your first attempt!!! If you could only see mine..You tackled more advanced techniques such as the wirework and metal clay. What a beautiful necklace!!! You must be so proud. And watch out...this is just the beginning, you'll be as addicted as the rest of us! :-)
