Seestern/Starfish

Nach einem Muster von Scott David Plumlee. Das Problem ist nur, dass das Sternchen seine Form nicht behalten wollte. Marke trauriger Seestern. :-( Was macht man also?
After a pattern by Scott David Plumlee. The problem was that the star wouldn't hold its shape. It looked like a very sad starfish. :-( So what to do?
Richtig! Man ,,ringelt" das gute Stück auf Leder und schon sieht der Anhänger richtig toll aus. Und auf der Haut ist das Leder beinahe unsichtbar. Mein neues Lieblingsstück! Ich glaube, da brauche ich noch einen in kupfer.
Right! Attach it to a piece of leather with some jumprings and the pendant looks fantastic. On the skin the leather is almost invisible. My new fav piece! I think I need one in copper, too.

  3. Hey Donna, this is really easy to make if you're a bit familiar with chainmaille. Make a length of Byzantine (ten sections) and join the ends. Then add five catch rings to the middle and add a sixth to pull the five rings to the center. Add five beads in between the bigger rings by stringing them on Fireline and knot. That's it.
