Smykker i sterlingsølv

Making your own jewellery in silver doesn’t necessarily have to take a long time. Neither does it have to recquire an extensive knowledge in the technical area.

Here you will find a little inspiration, with the newest additions to our jewellery collection, consisting of simple shapes like drops and coins.

All of the following pieces are easy to make and, if you prefer, also available in gilded sterling.


Necklace with teardrop-outline


Halskæde i sterlingsølv med dråbe

For this piece, the following materials were used:

1 pc. sterling teardrop-shaped outline, 24x20mm
1 pc. sterling teardrop-shaped outline 38x30mm
1 pc. jumpring, sterling, 4mm
60cm. ball chain, sterling, with connector

You open up the jumpring, place both of the teardrop-outlines in it, and close it up again. Next, you will have to take your ball chain and lead it through the jumpring, finishing up by closing the chain with the a connector (when buying a ball chain, a connector will be shipped with it). The necklace is long enough to be placed over your head.


Earrings with teardrop-outline

2 pcs. sterling teardrop-shaped outline 38x30mm
2 pcs. jumpring, sterling, 4mm
1 pair earwires with ball, sterling silver

You begin by using the jumpring to combine the small and the big teardrop-outlines. Do this by opening the jumpring, putting both outlines in place, and then closing the jumpring up again. Lastly, you lead the earwire through the hole of the smaller outline and your new earrings are finished.

1 pc. sterling coin 6mm
1 pc. sterling jumpring, 4mm
1 pc. sterling jumpring, 3mm
70cm cable chain, AR30, sterling silver

Begin by placing both coins on the jumpring. Next, lead the chain through the jumpring and close it with a 3mm jumpring. This chain doesn’t feature a locking mechanism, but is closed up with a jumpring. If the chain is shorter than 60cm, you will have to apply a lock instead of a jumpring.
