Has it seriously been 2 months since I last posted??? Just thought I'd pop in with a quick update. Here are a few bits and pieces laying around my work table.. just waiting for some finishing touches.
Tiny tourmaline leaves wire wrapped to a sterling silver oval. I love tourmaline! I don't work with it often because frankly, it is so expensive!!! I purchased a strand of these tourmaline leaves last year at a gem show and have only made one completed necklace using these beauties. It was purchased before I had the chance to list it online. Now I've started this focal piece... and can't decide whether to wire-wrap the leaves all the way around, or do something asymmetrical. What do you think?
Some oxidized sterling and gemstone pendants (top to bottom: phrenite, lepidochrosite, amethyst)
Glass droplets in a new design. I'll probably make this available in several different color combinations. What color combos are you partial to??
Gold plated pavé beads in crystal and sapphire blue.. and a beautiful vintage brass bead with Austrian opalite crystals. These will probably be necklaces.
Simple and elegant gold plated twig earrings with stick pearls. I think these would be perfect for a candlelit dinner. :)
So what are you working on at the moment?
I know I mentioned a giveaway. I actually had one on Sandy a la Mode a week or so ago, but didn't have a chance to blog about it. But if you follow me on twitter or facebook, you knew. ;) If you missed out on that one, don't fret, I'm planning on another one, right here on my blog. I'll make it special since you've been so patient with me. :)
