Jet of the Day: Shazzabeth Creations

Pink Passion
Our Jet of the Day today is Sharon, of Shazzabeth Creations who joins us from Queensland, Australia.
Sterling Silver Viking Weave
Diamond Chainmaille Earrings


 Wow. The Chainmaille technique is amazing, and our JOD is a master. She began making jewelry with beading and it was just a short time after this when she fell in love with Chainmaille. 

That was only a few  years ago and today, her Chainmaille necklaces, earrings and bracelets  are not just spectacular pieces of jewelry, they are lovely small sculptures.




Caribbean Spiral Earrings


Primarily self taught,  Sharon mastered these weaves by learning from on-line tutorials and magazines!

Now you can find her own tutorials for sale in her shop on Etsy.com. She loves teaching the technique as much as she loves creating with it.



Her next love affair began shortly after discovering chainmaille, and this is in wire-work, in general. Again, Sharon has mastered the technique!
Sterling and Jasper Pendant
Blue Kyanite and Gold Flower Necklace
 Sharon loves creating with sterling silver, copper and brass, combined with gemstones and Swarovski crystals.

What a gorgeous Carnelian ring!
