Today we're going to braid. My dear colleagues Edith van Leeuwen of "ArtiChic" from Hillegom and Dani Bus of "Dani's ABC" from Nieuwegein have registered with the intention to obtain a certificate.
It's lovely sunny weather that makes the whole cozy already. In addition, the cheerful character of the two ladies and already the day looks top!
We start braiding with colored wool. So we can practice to avoid errors braiding the bracelet. After all, for this silver is too expensive. The technique does require attention, an incorrect act noticed too late, is hard to recover.
They both place a silver clayo rnament to the bracelet.
After drying and finishing, the piece of jewelry is fired. To finally get the bracelet nicely polished, a tumbler appears the outcome. It hardens the silver wire, which by heating has become soft and flexible.
In between we make time for lunch, and we enjoy delicious sandwiches and fresh orange juice.
At 16.30 we finish and the ladies go back home.
Edith and Dani, both thanks for the great day, soon we arrange a new metalclay date!
