Cannot believe I have not blogged since November 2015 - and here it is, 2016!!
I basically took most of December "off". But, I eased back into jewelry making and managed to make a few things, and listed them in my shop.
I truly love these earrings. Hand case, lead free pewter tear drop charms from Inviciti. I have seen some beautiful creations on "the web" made with Vincent's charm - really colorful creations. After several attempts, I decided to keep it simple.
A pair of earrings and a bracelet made with gorgeous beads by Judith Billig. She named the beads "Delphi Relics" and her technique in acquiring that "just found in an archaeological dig" look is spot on!
These beads - also from Judith - remind me of the desert sky. Beautiful color combination!
The last pair of earrings with Judith's beads - I swear, the photo of the Grand Canyon truly captures the beautiful colors in these beads!
The bracelet below was made with gorgeous translucent beads by Susan Kennedy - I cannot capture the swirl of amethyst in my photos - but they are truly beautiful! I added some handmade beads caps, a handmade toggle and hollow bead, and two recycled silver beads - sandwiched together to make a single link in the chain.
Things kicked up a bit in late December. I am currently enrolled in an on-line class with Leslie Kail Villareal (link here). I blogged about this at Love My Art Jewelry. If you are interested in seeing my progress, just click here. The picture below Leslie's example of the sterling silver cuff that I am attempting to complete.
