In the Sasha + Max Studio, I have finally ventured into making my own earring hooks, reading lots of "how to's" ( thanks Beth Hemmila for the links on her blog last year -that got me motivated), practising on the cheaper wire first, and then having lots of fun bending sterling wire and getting my hammer out and making lots of noise.
I hope one day to be able to get my skills up to the standard of the husband and wife team of Atlantis Glass and Bead. from who I have bought quite a lot of pairs. This would involve investing in a tumbler to get the fabulous polish and shine, and lots of hammering practice - not sure what the neighbours might think! The next pair I have made use their gorgeous hooks .Wonderful sensuous curves by AGB contrast with the beads by Humblebeads.
Have a lovely week and I hope to be a regular blog poster again.
