I love Sunday night at 9:00 when I hear the Game of Thrones opening music. One of my favorite characters is Daenerys Targaryen, Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons. For the end game, my bests are on Targaryen and John Snow ruling the Seven Kingdoms.
Gina, aka Chasing Beads, created a beautiful necklace she named after me! It is a lovely piece of jewelry and I’m so touched and honored to be its namesake. Please visit Gina’s shop and show the necklace some love!
While you are visiting Gina’s shop, check out her other great jewelry. She designs beautiful necklaces and earrings. She also runs the shop Chasing Part II, featuring designs under $35, destash, and promotional bookmarks (by special order only).
Today, I took a Viking Knit class at Creative U, a relatively new jewelry/metalsmithing studio in Cave Creek. I’ve been wanting to learn Viking Knit, but wasn’t confident I could teach myself. This bracelet, the one I made in class, used 3 36″ sections of 24 gauge copper wire with 20 gauge copper wire for the connector rings and s-clasp. Isn’t it pretty? As soon as I get more practice, I’m going to make one in fine silver.
