This week I decided to feature two followers with amazing skills of jewellery crafting. Let me introduce you the work of ilgd and mamerala with their own descriptions included to the photos.

 Congratulations! They get to choose either:

"I've started crafting almost five years ago, I see this more like a skill than a talent. I started with small easy crafts like felt coin purses. And then I discovered jewelry crafting. I experiment with a lot of materials from rope and polymer clay to bottle caps, bolts and resin. I especially like making rings. My first ring was the Amelie bottle cap (1st pic left) and my most recent is the industrial large ring (1st pic right). My favourite of the bunch is the Audrey Hepburn ring!"


"Well since childhood, maybe 5 or something, I loved playing with small real saws and cut stuff as if I was carpenter, you might say I was copying someone but no, none of my family was a carpenter or even know this work, I just loved cutting stuff and know how, after few years maybe 7-8, I started my interest in tricks, learning few by time, then at school I was making small paper boxes, my first handi-crafts.

After few more years, maybe I was 10-12 I saw the Illusionist movie, I got obsessed with the locket and its trick, I swore I must have it by anyway. My parents laughed and told me no one can make it for you. I said ok, but I didn't give up, then by luck, when I started talking about it again in front of my uncle, he told me he got a few wood pieces workers left after decorating his house and they left a saw (the one like a ruler) too, so I told him if I can try with that.

I started working and working, but I was noob and didn't get any help, my parents were buying tools slowly. I kept watching all tutorials people made, but I was still having issues figuring it out after about 5 years from trying. I made it but I wasn't sure how the picture moved without being cut in two halves, then I remembered this trick when we move magnets to pull something secretly and that was it, the magnet should pull the picture from side to middle when I open it.

I didn't have enough, while I was making it I kept making more accessories, they might be low quality and get rusted fast but I love wearing them. I refuse paying on fake accessories. It's been about 8 years working on accessories for real, now I stopped a little and moved to writing."

I love how different their styles are. My favorites are LIGD's blue bracelet set and mamerala's tiara. Great job both of you :)

Congrats girls! I absolutely love your creativity, it is very inspiring, especially because I'm always lazy and even if I want to make something, I give up easily :P
