I’ve written here that this summer has been a dry season…literally and figuratively for me. We are in the middle of a multi-year drought in my part of the country. Scary as we head into another Santa Ana time of the year.
And I’ve barely made any jewelry since June…a couple of things, but not much…not nearly enough for a craft market or the holidays. A dry season. I am so happy to report that the juices are flowing again. In fact, this week has been awesome in that department. Here’s a look at some pieces…These first ones are a riff on an Anthropologie necklace that they no longer carry, but it fired up my imagination. I think of them as my vertebrae collection. So much movement and flexibility…just like I used to have 15 years ago.
Using up bits and pieces of chain
with a large rose quartz stone
First of twelve chandelier crystals in a box…
I tinned this one. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of these.
Love this bracelet bar and it’s sentiment!
Brass with fresh water pearls and chalcedony
Brass with Czech glass leaves and bird nest
Double strand of fresh water pearls and sterling silver
I also made four pair of earrings with some new etched copper components…
But that’s for another time.
Happy and exhausted.
