Welcome to Stormflight Designs


If you've always wondered about how jewelry is made and fine craft is done, this is the blog for you! Our intent is to show you the step-by-step of creating jewelry from a silver-smith's and lampworker's point of view. We'll throw in some other interesting craft-work too. Consider this a "tutorial-light" blog in a way. You'll get to see the creative process from start to finish. Sometimes it may take a while to get to the finish, so please be patient! We often have to wait for the muse to strike--sometimes in the middle of a different project!

Bumblebee - Step 5

I was finally able to work on this little bumblebee again! It drives me crazy when things get in the way of my silver work...just small things like, eating, the family, etc.

Ok, so last time I got it all soldered and cleaned up. So, now it is time to add the filigree pieces. The filigree wire is very small, twisted, flattened wire. One of the hardest things to do is figure out how to put it in the piece.

Just fill it in piece by piece until it looks good. I moved so many around until I finally got the look I wanted.
