A Couple Special Requests

Ever have one of these weeks?...I have been busy but I feel like I'm not making any headway. I couldn't really pinpoint what I've been doing. Lots of little nit picky stuff but nothing big that I can cross off my "to do" list...except that I did clean my daughters room...that was an all day affair.

Except for a few stolen moments away, I've still not really had much time in the workshop. Well not to create jewelry anyway...I have had a few custom orders for my findings shop. I like doing special request for findings...I like to see/hear what others like to use in their designs, and I can sometimes get carried away and come up with a great idea. Here are a couple of the recent requests...

These are hammered sterling silver discs, and they could make great chandelier earrings, the bigger ones...don't you think? That's what I thought of as soon as I saw them. Might have to remake these to use in my own design, maybe copper...hummm...

Then there are these...slightly concave, hammered, sterling silver buttons. I like these too...again a remake for myself I think...when I get the time.

Have a great week! I'm adding "create jewelry" onto my "to do" list, in hopes that I will get at least one piece made this week.


  1. oooh, Shelby..I love those sterling buttons!

  2. Oooooh, those little silver buttons are just gorgeous!

  3. I completely understand how you feel, Shelby. I seem to have that kind of week ALL the time...lots of little things add up and who knows where the time goes.
    Your silver findings are beautiful - your work is always so meticulous. :-)

  4. Those are really awesome! And I know what you mean about days where you feel like you're working working working, but nothing is getting done!

  5. I had to add, "make jewelry" to my to do list this week too! ~~~~It's like....yeah, I used to do that um... everyday!

    I love your buttons!
