One of the lovely things about having a job is being able to afford the things to help me make my dream of Goddess Tasia Jewelry a reality.
I spent $64 dollars on a WigJig (a transparent plastic pegboard), nylon jaw pliers and a SuperPeg so I could learn how to do clean wire-based jewelry.
I wish I had gotten the nylon jaw pliers ages ago. They're used to straighten kinks out of the wire so it can be salvaged. I heart my pliers.


So, I made two projects this weekend.


This is a necklace component made of sterling silver wire, aquamarine and pearls. I'm not quite happy with it; one of the loops is not proportional but I just learned this.



The jig comes with several small pegs. The SuperPeg allows me to make a larger diameter wrap. These are also sterling silver with a gold Swarovski crystal dangle.
