Sorry I have not been blogging lately, ever since I got back from Cape Cod it has been pretty busy. Orders to fill, making new pieces, taking care of animals, house etc etc. It also took forever to get over the time change, maybe because I am getting older. Ha Ha.
Here is a little peek at what I have been up to. I have been doing a little bit of everything, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings.
I tried making some new chains, for the chrysocolla necklace I balled up the silver wire to hold the links together. For the imperial jasper necklace I tried to keep it simple because the stone is very dramatic I think.
With these bracelets I also used the balled up wire technique to assemble the links together. Each one is a little different.
For the ring I was very excited how the band came out. I soldered together three 12 gauge wires to create the band. I think the beaded wire gives it a little extra touch.
My fury children have also been taking up a lot of my time. Trying to make up for the 45 days I was away. Here is Rusty with his new back pack on our morning walk and of course Kiki enjoying all the new toys I brought back for her.
