Viking Knit Bracelet

I've been wanting to try this viking chain for quite sometime, till now whenever I saw this intricate design I assumed it was going to be very difficult and also looking at the name I thought its got to do something with knitting (not my area of interest) so I didn't give it a try. Recently I went to a craft fair ,there I saw this design I very much wanted to buy it but the price was high.... so I decided to make one for myself.

Materials used
Aen Key
28 gauge wire(from Itsy Bitsy)
Wire cutter
Eye pin
Metal Clasps

First chain turned out good but it had few kinks here and there, but not noticeable.

Looking at the chain my daughter asked me to make a bracelet for her.
First made the viking knit bracelet
Next filled the bracelet with crystal beads
Added the end caps
Finished it by hanging few charms to it.

VOILA pretty bracelet ready....

If anyone interested in learning the technique for this bracelet do email me at or leave a coment.

Another Altered Box

I decorated this altoids box for gifting the jewellery which I made in my previous post.

(patterned paper and pearl)

Wire Jewellery Set

I made this set to gift it to my sister-in-law for her birthday. First I just made the ear cuff and then all the other pieces followed to make a complete set.

Paper Bead Jewellery

The pendant and earring are made from 1" cream PAPER strip. I drew the picture, colored it and then rolled the paper to form the bead. I used Mod Podge as the top coat to give a glossy finish. Once it dries completely added the pearls to finish the pendant and earring.

My kids were able to find six differences between the drawings.
I'm adding this to Itsy Bitsy Pretty P Challenge
