New Work & Some Thoughts

I took the time earlier this week to list some new pieces in my Etsy shop. What can I say, I'm in love with all the new pretties! My muse has definitely made the switch to summer.

Case and point! Lots of colorful faceted gemstones and shiny sterling silver wirework links. This necklace can be worn long or doubled. 
This necklace was such a pleasure to create! I haven't really gone crazy with the wire so much lately, but it felt great to really dig in with the wirework and piece it all together.

The wirework has taken a back seat to metal lately. I super, love this bangle! (can I say that?) May be a few more of these in the works.
Working with metals is great because there are times when I really need to be on my toes and concentrate, like when I'm wielding the torch. Then, when it comes time to sand, it's time to relax (it can get a little mundane), and I can get lost in my thoughts.

Update: Sold - Thank you!

One thing that I love in the summer is a "go to" pair of earrings! These are great because there is no thinking involved, put them on with your favorite sun dress or your bathing suit to sit poolside. Love all the texture from the coiling!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!


  1. I agree - I love that bangle! Hope you are well, and hope to see you at some point over the summer, or early fall!

  2. I love that bangle too and those earrings, simple and elegant. Beautiful work!

  3. Loving the bangle!!! You make me want to make one ♥ The earrings are really cool too, great work!

  4. Our hand can really make beautiful and wonderful things rather than machine. I loved your above design; simple but very beautiful.
