Sea Glass brooch and earrings set - a gift for my sister-in-law
I have been venturing into the world of sea glass jewellery and when my sister-in-laws 50th birthday came up I thought what a great opportunity to create something unique for her!
She likes beads and glass so I thought she would appreciate a sea glass creation.
I used a 3 hole kilt pin which can be used as a brooch or to hold a scarf in place, and small white, green and brown sea glass shards and silver star spacers.
I drilled the glass but found the pieces chipped slightly on the bottom, this was covered up in most places by the silver pieces but I want them to be perfect so I must work on my drilling technique!
All the pieces of glass were drilled with a diamond drill and I used 20 guage wire for some of the findings,others were purchased from a local craft shop.
I want to have a go at wire wrapping next.
My sister-in-law loved her present, now I need to make a set for myself.
Great work and we love the pics!
To prevent chipping, you might try drilling 1/2 way from one side, then finish from the other side.
This DVD includes drilling glass as well as many other useful tips.
