Monthly Challenge- Chainmaking

Our October challenge was to experiment with chainmaking. This month didn't need to be a finished product but we do have two gorgeous bracelets that were completed. Chainmaking is such an intriguing challenge, there is so much that can be done. Enjoy and I hope we have inspired you to make some chain of your own.

This is a handmade curb chain with a little turquoise heart. Chain making is one of my favorite techniques.

 The photo is of a few sample pieces with different finishes on two different chain types I made. The double U shape sideways is a cast element from a wax I carved. I've been wanting to make this bracelet for a while, so thanks for this challenge! The second is hammered silver circles soldered together to make a unique statement chain with so many possibilities. Great challenge!

I am very fascinated by chain weaving, it's so great what structures are made of wire. The second pic is a great sampler of multiple chain types.

 I tried to make some chains that would match earring designs I've been working on lately.

This is actually 2 chains that are connected together at the moment. They can be worn as 1 long chain or as 2 individual shorter chains.

Monthly Challenge- Halloween

Happy October! We are starting the month off with a few Halloween inspired pieces, enjoy.

    Cynthia Kurth- Schmuckburg

That´s why I love to be in the etsy metal team. I create things that I would never have done alone. In fact I don´t like Halloween so much. It's so easy to scare me.
And I´m really scared about spiders. And now take a look: I even made a spider with fat black legs on the backside - and enjoy it!

    Elise Worman- EMW Metalworks

I was inspired by Halloween to make masks. This was so much fun! These pieces are made from sterling silver and can be worn as a pin or a pendant. Most of the metal I used came from my scrap box.

For me the kick-off to Halloween is buying that first bag of candy corn as soon as the Halloween candies hit the store shelves!!
