Sawing Metal - Doing Thing Outside The Comfort Zone





I been waiting to saw metal for so long, i had bought the Knew Concepts Saw two years back and finally for the 1st time i thoroughly use the saw in these two days (previously i just saw bezel strip). I been doing wire art for so long and would love to add new bench skill in order to push myself further.

The ring was made from my hand drawn pattern on copper sheet and silver strip and i saw both of them accordingly. I soldered the silver strip and shank, then i drilled holes and stitched the beads using fine silver wire, oxidize and polish. 

At last, i made it, yay !

Sterling Silver Earrings with Labradorite, Moostone and Amethyst - Crocus



 

These was made to showcase at Hello Street Market in Penang but well i find Penangnite are not exciting when it come to arts.

I had changed the curves design five times in order to make them look special. The 1st four times, i wrapped the short curvy wires to the frames but due to certain aspect they did not seem balance. So on the last time, i already ran out of thin gauge Argentium wire and decided to just solder them to the frame, phew, they turned out nice.

These are available at Kita Kita !

Argentium Silver with Multicolor Sapphire


These are my first stone setting jewelry in one year and half, I'm quite happy with the designs but not everyone can carry off these rings, it takes passionate arty individual to wear these and i found one and glad she bought the Rose Quartz.

More jewelry in process !

Mix Metal Ring - Almost Triangle and A Story of Bezel Making




Well, i had been very busy, intensively polishing my bench skills in bezels making and stones setting. Now i can finely made round and oval bezels finely. When i 1st started, i 'sacrificed' a lot of materials (i do broke my precious 20cwt Aqumarine too) but it's really worth it. I still used the technique that my sifu taught me, using chisel and hammer to wonderfully set the stone, so that it won't move at all.

Almost Triangle ring is the fifth ring that i made and the 1st ring that i made with brass sheet and silver strip and band. I like brass with Labradorite, it's kinda blend for subtle look. 

I will upload another four rings that i made Argentium silver, so stay tune !

Fashion Prints Cotton Fabric and New Etsy Shop


I been thinking lately should i blogging about my fabrics in emikaz.com or separately. Well, never decide yet but i just setup a new Etsy shop, Fabrics by Emi Kaz, where international buyers can purchase the fabrics securely without much hassle.

Well this fabric business is actually owned by my mother and i help her to setup this for her (she is a retiree). We choose to sell these printed fabrics because we love the stunning prints and colors (very hard to find) and we wanted to share this love with all fashion lovers !

p/s: While writing this, i had a pair of blossom earrings to be completed.

Sterling Silver Elongated Organic Earring with Sky Blue Topaz - Organix


These are one the most simplest and elegant pair of earrings that i love to make. They seems very simple to construct but the challenge is to balance each side of the earring. I had sold almost 5 pairs of these in mix metal in different variation and so happy people seems to love these design. 

Frankly i haven't touch my wires and pliers almost 3 weeks now due to setting up my family business under the name Fabrics by Emi Kaz ! Please browse and Likes, perhaps !
