Hi! I've been busy lately. Listing a few new items before I head to Oregon for a vacation to visit family. (I'll be listing my pretty brooch I introduced on my blog a couple of weeks ago)...these will probably go into the shop tomorrow morning.
Big Yellow Taxi Pendant (another version)
This is the Yellow Opalite stone I purchased a while back from Gemcutter's shop on Etsy. She has found a snugly spot in this Silver bezel I made. (If you follow my blog or watch any of my videos you may know how much I love to make my own chains.) The pendant is riveted to the chain and each section of the sterling silver chain moves about so freely. It almost looks like rays of sun shooting out from the stone, which reminds me of a big yellow taxi! The clasp is a simple and striking Shepherd's Hook clasp, also made by me. (Pam I am going to do a vlog for you soon, maybe this week!!!)
I love to show the back of my work, and love to see the back of my fellow artisan's work...
Autumn's Elements in Silver and Labradorite Briolettes
These are like long drops of silver rain, they swing about so freely. At the bottom sit drops of pretty blue Labradorite brioletes wrapped in silver wire.
Here is my pair, I do love these, and will be wearing them often!
It was a busy day for me. I'm really digging the Elements earrings and will be adding other colors soon. They do have a kinteic feel to them.
Big Yellow Taxi Pendant finally came together today as I made and finished the sterling silver chain. It had been set into the bezel a few weeks ago and I needed to sit and think about how to finish it...and it came together so sweetly today. I love the rivets for the cold connection to the chain. I often work this way. If you come to my studio you'll find projects in various stages. Unless I'm doing a custom order, most of my pieces come together like paintings ~ in stages.
Bart from earlier today...look at those blue eyes
Here's Puddypie, our old boy, he is losing weight and I have had to trim his hair almost daily (he doen'st clean himself too much anymore). The good news is he is a huge part of the family, sleeps with us every night and still eats and drinks his water.
