Here we are, this is the first post of 2012 and it's a DIY tutorial, I hope you'll enjoy it! A while back I was drawn to jewelry inspired by nature: gold leaves and branches. Today I was lucky enought to find some jewel findings with the shape of leaves so I could make my dream necklace and earrings. You can them on ebay browsing keywords like leaf charms or leaf findings.

Today I'll show you how to make your own jump rings out of metallic wire so you can untick them from your shopping list and save some cash.

After making your jump rings use them to connect your findings to the chain and your findings to earrings hooks, add a snap hook to close the necklace.

Cominciamo il 2012 con un tutorial su come realizzare una nuova parure. Qualche tempo fa ero stata attratta da dei gioielli ispirati alla natura costituiti da foglie e rami dorati. La parure prende ispirazione da quei gioielli ed è stata realizzata con dei charms a forma di foglia. Potrete trovarne di simili su ebay cercando parole chiavi come leaf charms o leaf findings. Oggi vi mostrerò come realizzare gli anellini dorati che vengono utilizzati per connettere due elementi di una collana; potrete così realizzarli in casa rismarmiando i soldi dell'acquisto.

Dopo aver realizzato i vostri anellini utilizzateli per connettere i ciondoli alla catenella e ai ganci per gli orecchini; terminate la collana aggiungendo un moschettone per la chiusura.

your supply: metallic wire - jewelry findings - chain - pincers - earrings hooks - snap hook
I added a few beads
putting all in place

Hi Alessia this is a really beautiful design! And your jump ring idea is so different! I can see it being used to make chain mail clothing- like a metallic 'knitted' top! Best wishes for the new year! xx
