When my colleague, Wendy, first showed me the crystal dangling ring she made, I was inspired! That was what caught my fancy, and got me interested in this, my new-found hobby! Thanks very much Wendy, for showing me a whole new world!
Well, I couldn’t get the dangling ring out of my head, so I just couldn’t resist the temptation of challenging myself. Yes, I know I’m only a beginner… but you can’t discourage me from trying. This is my 2nd attempt actually. I left the wires too long in my first attempt, so it didn’t look nice. In this 2nd try, I cut off over 2cm of wire off each strand! And it does look a lot better than the first one.
I showed Wendy my masterpiece, and she was all praises that I figured it out so quickly. She also suggested that the ring would look much better if I had chosen larger sized crystals. Sigh… guess I’ll have to try again! But it won’t be my 4th project… as I’ve started on a pearl dangling ring already! I’ll show you guys when that’s done.
So what else am I planning to make? I have this idea of a lovely dangling bead belt, so I think I’ll try that next.
