Handmade Monday time again!

I've been a bit rubbish at keeping everyone updated lately, partly because I've been so busy and partly pure laziness! In an effort to get a bit better at it I've set myself a reminder every week to take part in handmade'd think I'd remember with it being the first day of the week but I usually forget until at least Wednesday!!!

I'm focusing a lot on chainmail at the minute and I'm very pleased with myself this week for managing to get the hang of the full persian weave :) and completing a's made from 6mm Sterling silver jump rings and only took me about 4 hours once I'd got into it!

I had some really pretty pink anodised aluminium rings delivered last Friday and have made this pretty charm bracelet, I've haven't found anywhere that I can get coloured clasps from yet but as the charms are sterling silver I don't think the clasp looks too out of place?

If you have an interest in chainmail keep an eye on my facebook page The Silver Shack, I've got a couple of fairs coming up in the next two weeks so I'll be making like crazy and updating details of where I'll be!


  1. Lovely chain bracelet, I'm looking forward to seeing more.

  2. That's lovely. I did a course last year which I really enjoyed but haven't done any since - good intentions and all.

    I like the pink bracelet to - I think silver goes with pretty much everything.

  3. Very nice, and thanks for the link to your FB page, I always enjoy "liking" everyones FB pages!

  4. Love your creations, the little shoe charm is so sweet

  5. Lovely pieces.

    The key to organised blogging has got to be making draft posts - so easy to update and publish then! x
