Nefertiti


About this design:

My colored chainmaille. Pattern is four-in-one european. The turquoise stone is also cutted and polished by me. My first stone cutting!!!! I do not have real stone cutting and polishing machines/tools, but seems like one is able to do that with some other tools ;).
On the second picture there is matching bracelet.

    Ahhhh, how pretty Arja. And wow, you cut and polished that stone too??! Impressive. The necklace is breathtaking and the bracelet a divine compliment to it. :-)

    Will there be matching chainmaille earrings to go with the set? Or perhaps a ring?! LOL. SLS

    Thank You, my dear friends :) . I had my very first show today. A lot of likes, but no sells. I am doing something badly wrong!

    You know I love this work – I’ve said it before!! Is it true that you didn’t sell anything? You know what – you should take your jewelry at work if you haven’t done it yet (well, I guess there are some women at your work?). Before christmas I was attending a big show here in my hometown, and there were A LOT of people there. But guess what – I sold almost more to my collegues at work in one hour than at that big show!!

    Sorry to hear Arja that the show wasn’t a hit. Those people must not have been in the mood to buy yesterday. I agree with Wenche … the guys and gals at my work tend to be some of the best repeat customers! Keep us posted!! SLS

    This is stunning. There are a lot of talented people but You are a real artist. I would wear almost every piece you have made and would be proud to have created any of them. I can’t imagine you have sold everything before it was even finished. Finding a market for your pieces may take time but you will

    This jewelry could inspire and entire fashion ensemble! The Nefertiti collection. Sort of timely with the recent passing of my favorite Cleopatra, Elizabeth Taylor. Doing your own stone cutting and polishing empowers you. giving you the option to chose whatever stones you desire for your work; this is so awesome!

    absolutely fabulous set! …maybe the show was a wrong fit? think maybe a juried artisan type show would be a good match but, I’m no expert… just a thought
