When creating jewelry, I am an easily distracted designer. I’m attracted to the next new thing I see …whether technique, style, metal finish, shapes, and color combos, etc…
Here are a couple of my newest favorites.
Raw brass. Why didn’t I know just how gorgeous it is when textured and polished? Love, love the old gold color.
Left over bits turned into earring pendants with abalone chunks.
My first bangle made with 10 gauge wire.
Loved it so much, I made two more!
Then, I got happily sidetracked by admiring the silver work of Cindy Pack of Art and Soul Jewelry. She’s a contributor over at Earrings Everyday…one of my favorite blogs for inspiration and encouragement. They have such a wonderfully varied set of people who share their work over there. Mine are accented with a touch of honey chalcedony (again a new color for me) and turquoise.
So my goal is to focus my attention on more brass metal in my work and more of this textured, oxidized silver. And more soldering and hammering. Sweet!
At least for the next week.
