This week brought a delivery of silk thread, which I have always had in my mind to use in my jewellery.
The delicate colours and strength of the thread is absolutely perfect for making delicate jewellery, which doesn't break the bank as the precious metals do at the moment. I've also been able to use the rubies and sapphires I picked up in India which sets the silk off prefectly.
I'm hoping to see if I can use the silk in some necklace designs next and have thought something quite cute up whilst walking to work this morning.
Tell me what you think.
