My friend, Deborah Gray-Wurz, created this gorgeous necklace from my Victorian Key Pendant tutorial. She accidently grabbed the 20 gauge wire instead of the 18 gauge and you can't even tell. She finished the necklace with garnets, a handmade chain, and a beautiful lock cut from sheet sterling silver. You can see more of Deborah's work at her Etsy shop or at her website. Thanks, Deb, for trying this out.
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
