Final Christmas Present!!!

Well I finished the last present I'll be making for Christmas this year. Todd's Mom asked for a piece of jewelry made by me for her gift this year. Back in October I managed to purchase a back issue of Wirework magazine with the directions to make the Empressa Chain Bracelet. I decided to make this for Todd's Mum. The rings are gold filled (not plated) and I accidentally used a larger gage ring (fatter) than recommended so its quite a substantial piece. And it caused lots of muttering and cursing on my behalf because it was a challenge to thread some of the rings in.



Sooo besides putting my tree up and wrapping the gifts I am now ready for Christmas!

Of course I have one more day of work left first (I know its just wrong).

Oh my gosh, Dani, it's GORGEOUS! I can't believe you made that; it does not look handmade in the least. Congratulations on such a beautiful finish; his mom is sure to LOVE it!
