Rose Locket II

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I'm a bit obsessed with lockets at the moment ;-). This is the second one in my little "Rose Locket Series", inspired by Mary Tucker's gorgeous new lockets (please have a look at them, she's wiredelements on facebook and flickr), this time with a different weave and a simple hinge. You can find a free tutorial for the locket in the learning center of Mary's wiredelements website (http://wiredelements.com/learning-center/free-tutorials/). Again I've used a Rose of Sharon to attach the rivoli in the center (without the outer coils, like Perri's here: http://www.jewelrylessons.com/gallery/dahlia-volcano). You can find her tutorial here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/112055690/rose-of-sharon-coiled-faceted-birthstone. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Begin with Mary's Locket Tutorial and Perri Jackson's Rose of Sharon Tutorial. It needs some practice to combine them.
