I worked on these pieces in my free time - the raw sapphire necklace was done over the course of a couple of days (a lot of beads to wrap!) and the bracelet was done in an evening - from conception to finish. I used heavy gauge fine silver for the bracelet and for the focal on the necklace (14 gauge to be exact) and 20 gauge for the wire wrapping on the sapphires. (and of course the beautiful sapphires came from Turquoise Magpie - who else?!)
The links on the bracelet were formed using the ends of two of my dapping tools (oh, did I also mention I had packed and was in the middle of moving into another place at the same time?!!), as were the jump rings.
