Corset making by fairyfrog Corset making by fairyfrog
Please note these are *NOT* ment as tutorials, only to show my customer the progress of the ring I'm making for her.

If you have the skills to make something like this,
I bet you are good enough to have your own ideas and solutions for how to go through with them!

Got commissioned for a corset ring with mirror finish, more cleavage and longer point at the front. Finished it!

..decided to take some step-by-step images since people have asked me how I forge them. Just to show off my crafts! ;)

Sterling silver sheet.

My best friend was the person who commissioned this piece from :iconfairyfrog: and she was overjoyed with the final product and the service from the creator herself. I recommend :iconfairyfrog: to anyone who wants a gorgeous piece of custom jewelery like this!!! <33333

How are you so awesome!?
(Really, how did you get into jewelry smithing?)

Sorry for taking so long to reply!

I wanted to be a blacksmith since the age of 13, and before that I wanted to work with glass.
I always had a lot of curiosity in crafting and learning new techniques and combine them.

This ring for instance is a combination of my jewelcraft and old job as a semstress. I love to create optical illusions and shape metal into objexts usually made from other materials. And I always had a fascination for miniatures.

So a lot of curiosity, even more creativity, stubbornness and some luck brought me to the point where I am today - having my own little business and living off creating shiny things.

Now, this isn't what I do for a living, what sets food on my table is helping people mend old broken jewelry and making wedding bands, this is just the creative "extra" I get to do on occasion.

It has been a long time since I got to do a project just for myself that took more than a couple of hours. it can be difficult when your hobby and interest becomes a job. I hope I never lose the burning flame of passion for what I do. I don't think I will, though.. since I have so many things I could combine if I get bored.

Smithing, mask-making, sewing, embroidery, sculpting, beading, scrapbooking, glassworking, music, wood work, cooking..

I know I have been granted a great gift in my joy of creation and practical approach. I am very grateful for it.

mind you though, I have struggled in life and spent most of my school years alone and alienated. I was bullied and considered weird, and what I did instead was sitting around in my room crafting on my own.

Also, my family never had much money to spend. My mother made me feel rich though, and when I had a serious interest she always gave me real materials to experiment with. She is an arts teacher and always gave me artist grade materials. She is awesome and I think that brought me a long way. She has always encouraged my crafts and is my best and worst critic.

Anyway, thank you for your kind comment. It's much appreciated and I got a bit embarrassed to answer it at once, but there you go. ;)


I might grow old, but I refuse to grow up! ;)

Gotta hand it to you [or the person who commissioned it], this is definitely different.

Nice Work, though.

They found it in my ETSY-shop and wanted slight alterations. ;)
