chiquita

I forgot to add this work to my 'nid works' post. I made it during the jewellery module. More like jewellery with experimental material... 




braiding bands linked with silver rings




It took me almost two whole months, to make a choker neckpiece and a pair of 3d (tubular) earrings with this technique. Killingly tedious...! to first make the jump rings out of thin silver wire and then plug them onto two bands at a time, plus making sure the bands don't get crushed or too tight anywhere.


It was finally displayed at India International Jewellery Show (IIJS) '2004 and wholly appreciated.


Oh! I named it 'Chiquita'.
