Meetallic H20 Series tutorial in the works

I love making cuffs. I had several requests to make a tutorial for my metallic H20 series. Here is the piece I just finished in order to do the step by step tutorial!

I will post the link when uploaded and ready for sale.

A Christmas Sister & a new free tut

Saturday I spent time away from my all day writing frenzy on Black Friday (10,000 words challenge - write them all in one day!). So Saturday I needed a serious break! I made a variation of my Dainty Sister Pendant tutorial- Christmas Sister.

Later in I was checking out youtube and found this wonderful tut for a mandala! So I have posted it here for all to enjoy!!!

Industrial Chic

This is my second attempt at the Riding the Waves cuff tut. I made several construction modifications for ease and speed.

Copper Waves- Thanks Linda Rosa for the tut

I just finished this piece this morning around 2:30 AM. I need to make a clasp because I have a big fat wrist and the cuff barely comes past my wrist bones. I love the design. I already have ideas for alterations.
You can find the tutorial from Linda Rosa here.

Free tutorials

I am an internet junky! I will search and search for anything that I am really interested in learning. A lot of people out there would like to learn how to make various types of jewelry. However, in these hard economic times (and in my personal case when I know I can find it on line for free- I know it sounds cheap, but it's actually practical. Why pay $8-$25 dollars for a common technique when a little bit of internet time will suffice?). So I've decided to write down here in this post a few links to tutorials that are free! Try some of them for Christmas gifts, etc. Feel free to leave comments!
EDITED POSTING: Ok, I made three pendants yesterday. I made several alterations to the video tut. I changed thread counts and used needles to hide thread ends. HEre are the three results.
Today's pick: thread art pendants. I saw this on youtube after a quick search. I plan on doing one this afternoon :)

Tree of life pendant: The same artist has a tree of life video as well. I learned my from another site but videos are more interactive. This one is a little more involved. You can be more freeform with them.

A gemstone tree. Again it's from the same artist. Very cool!
