    Default A sneak-peek at a future collection

    Hi everyone!

    We made a couple of custom pendants a while ago from an original idea that we had, and they were so popular with everyone who saw them that we've decided to make a collection based on the same techniques.

    Have a look at our blog: "Elements" collection in progress - Nezumiz Diaries

    What do you think? We just love the contrast between the silver and the enamel! A tricky piece to make with so many stages that can and do go wrong, but very rewarding!
    We even had to make our own tools for blocking out areas when enamelling...
    Anyway, we'll post a pic of the finished pieces! ^_^

    If you'd like Mochi and Mocha to keep you posted on anything that's happening in their happy little burrow, you can suscribe to our blog newsletter!

    Happy tinkering!

    They are very pretty! Do you have to get them hallmarked before putting enamels on them or can it be done afterwards?

    I'm not keen - they're not to my taste I'm afraid.

    Ooh, interesting! Are the circles you've punched out usable too, or does that deform them too much?

    I like the light and shade achieved by the etching. Enamelling is definitely my thing.

    Wonderful idea, I love the etched designs that you have used, I'm not keen on wearing strong or bright colours myself and therefore would probably be a "water" person.

    Sounds an intriguing collection, I look forward to seeing the finished pieces.

    Should we get them hallmarked? You mean get them stamped with 925 or something like that? We've never done it so far but maybe we should consider doing it in the future.

    Yes the extra circles can be used, in fact we turned them into new tools (soldered a copper pin at the back). At first, putting the enamel on the pierced pieces while avoiding the holes was a nightmare, now we put the tools in the corresponding holes, sprinkle the powder over the whole piece, lift up the tools and voila, the holes are still clean! Saves a lot of time and stress
    BTW the holes are punched using Cookson's disc cutting set - the time saved in cutting those small discs!!!!! Anyone knows where we could find one that cuts larger discs? How do you all make circles, sawing and filing?

    We'll be sure to post photos of the finished pieces, still have a lot of stuff to finish, a vampire jewellery designing competition in Caithness to judge (and a custom prize to make after the winner's design!), then we'll have more time for the fancy stuff!

    Merci beaucoup for all the encouragement!
