View Full Version : Finally....I've finished it!

We'll nearly. I've loosely attached a clasp but I'm looking for a nice gem clasp to set it off. Not great pictures :)

What do you think? Do you think a gem clasp would look better?

Looks great and I really don't think it needs any additions, the beauty of the metal speaks for itself.

That work speaks for itself, and great value for only 10p. No seriously, let it stand alone or you will be gilding the lilly.

A fabulous result, Dennis.

that is lovely, and i like the clasp that is attactched. Ican't spell tonight.

Thanks for your kind comments. I think I will keep the clasp until I find one suitable. I liked this one because it's a dragon and goes with the weave :)

Beautiful - I love close weave work, how long did it take? :)

Hi Murano Silver, I didn't time how long it took :) I would say a few days? I mainly worked on it at night after the kids were put to bed. I ran out of wire so had to wait a while to finish it. I'm really pleased with it but not sure I would attempt another one this size :)

Hi Karenl, your work looks great! I think it is just fine like that without any changes. :)

I'd also vote for leaving the clasp as is - it seems just right. From a distance it adds some extra textural interest without calling attention away from the lovely weave, and the dragon ties in with the scaly look very nicely.

Beautiful piece of Dragonscale, and I like the clasp as well, it goes very well with the weave. Where did you get the clasp, or did you make it?

this thread's almost 18 months old, and the OP hasn't been back since.

However, I can tell you (as I did the OP) that the clasp came from http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1x-STERLING-SILVER-7-STRAND-DRAGON-PEARL-BOX-CLASP-N506-/200678188893?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2eb95a275d#ht_541wt_956

The new series of the Walking Dead is imminent so perhaps she was getting us ready for another zombie invasion.

Is that season 3?

yes Peter scheduled for 2nd week October US and for us shortly thereafter unless you have a US I tunes account.

Thank you George. I really ought to look at post dates - another lesson learned.
