I make jewellery for many reasons, and having worked on a few Live Role Play jewellery commissions, I've picked up a few tricks that apply to all jewellery.
Here's my latest jewellery trick I'll share with you ;)
(Hang on you ask, Live what now? Live Role Play is basically improvised theater, where the participants play make believe for their own collective entertainment, rather than to entertain an audience. The costumes and accessories are often amazing!)
A recent commission was to strengthen a piece of costume jewellery for this rather splendid looking chap.
"A repair job? It's simple." thinks I.
Oh how my aching fingers mock me now!
