    Travel TTC Pregnancy Twitter Upcycling Valentines Gift Vintage Website Wholesale Windchime Winter Warmth 2015 Work In Progress Creative Exchange Part 2 2nd June 2010 I ve been working through ideas of what to do with my pieces of coloured acrylic and because the clay pieces that also came in the box along with the acrylic are flower like I m going to use these as a starting point for my piece s I want to make something wearable and tactile and bright something evoking spring summer that s got movement and a flow about it So I m thinking along the lines of making a set of jewellery maybe a neckpiece with earrings to match and or a bracelet Or maybe some sort of brooch or collection of brooches We re surrounded by buttercups and daisies at the moment and I love them I love the bright yellow of the buttercups and I love the delicate little petals of the daisies On a recent dog walk I collected a load of buttercups and made them into a chain whilst in transit and this got me thinking about some paintings by Kirsty Lorenz that I saw on her website Really beautiful depictions of simple daisy chains I really love the way the flowers join together and the shapes and angles of the chains I love the way they lie and the shadows they produce So it got me thinking about neckpieces and I set about trying a few things out with buttons and silver just to see if I could emulate the same kind of feel of a daisy chain It was difficult figuring out how I could make some simple links in silver incorporating the buttons eventually acrylic without melting them I didn t want to thread the buttons onto silver and bend the ends to form loops and connect them like a traditional chain I didn t like the results too clunky it didn t flow like a daisy chain Here are some illustrations fom my sketchbook of what I wanted to achieve So what followed was a a lot of Googling and trawling through books to discover how to do what I had my heart set on doing I found some really interesting articles on how to adjust rings without damaging the stone set in place and this gave me enough info to start playing around and putting what I read into practice Here are some of my tests using thick silver wire and some small shirt buttons It s a tricky process but totally do able I wasn t so keen on the thick wire though I initially used 1 5mm as I thought this would be best as it wouldn t distort very easily but it s out of proportion with the buttons and makes the piece look too chunky So my next attempt used 1mm wire and I think this give a more dainty look and feel My only worry is that it s more
