Sneak Peek

Skutt kiln at Alaska Handmade JewelryThis is so nice that I want to share quick peek with you before the creation is completed. These are the earrings that will accompany a necklace.

As you know we have been expanding in wire sculpture, aka wire wrap jewelry. Each component and completed piece is different. This provides a very unique look for the person who wants one of a kind jewelry.

German Silver is the metal that is used in creation.

Often the more intricate wire wrap is called wire weave. Looking at these earrings can certainly see why.

Keep a watch out for the completed set to be listed in New Creations.

Hope you enjoy the sneek peek.

Wire Creation

Silver wire wrap creations at Alaska Handmade JewelryWe wanted to share with you a look at a creation designed by request. It is done in sterling silver wire and meets the client's desire for their favorite colors of rich pink and Abalone.

This free form wire sculpture necklace provides a rich pink color with Rhondite and Abalone including a nugget of Abalone with deep creme colored accents of River Stone. It accents a joyful, happy and full of life spirit.

It is an honor to do specialty creations for clients. I feel very complemented to be asked to do so. The creation ends up being quite an accent for the new home it goes to.

There is always the challenge of finding just the best color, texture, mood and over all feeling of each part of a creation. And from that experience comes our adventuring into creations made from copper.

Celebrities Visit

This morning we were surprised by two very Alaskan celebrities. Our very capable IT department quickly grabbed a camera and snapped pictures of them as they approached the back door.Alaskan moose We remained very quiet knowing how they shun the spotlight.

Time to reveal the names of the Alaskan celebrities. Momma Moose and Baby moose (aka Moose cow and her calf). Moose are celebrities here. People visit and want to see Moose. When you look for them, typically, you don't find them. And their antics are always surprising.

By the way, right now they are very happy if anyone has left out a Halloween pumpkin. Pumpkins are like candy to them. To bad that in Spring, tulips are the same.

Thanks for sharing the fun of Alaska.

Wire Adventures

Here is the first peek at our adventure into Wire Sculpture jewelry.

There are several points to perfect. Wire Sculpture is a free form creation. Wire Sculpture Earrings Even if repeating the same design each piece will be a little different. This fits right in with our style of handmade one of a kind Alaskan jewelry.

You will see different gauges (sizes) and shapes of wire used. Three of the more common wire shapes are: round, half round and square. There are different hardness levels of wire too.

As you can see from this post and the previous one, we are making progress in adding to the choices you have here at Alaska Handmade Jewelry.
