Couple Of Rings


This ring is a remake. I wasn’t loving the original so I removed the bezel and replaced it with one that is patterned. I thought it would be too busy but since the stone is a simple round stone, I think it looks better.


RawAmethystRingAlso put this one together. Features a raw amethyst.

Box Bead Necklace and Other Things

Finally got around to making a silver box bead necklace. Had to add some glass beads too.


Also finished another message locket pendant.

MessageLocket-BlueI used a glass bullet cab on the top and domed the bottom.


I wanted to practice what I learned in Joanna Gollberg’s glass so I did a prong setting for the lavender CZ. The cabochon is glass with enamels and frit on it.

Gray and Pink Reverse Psychology Scarf

This is the second Reverse Psychology (by Mindy Ross) scarf I’ve made. I think I’m going to keep this one for myself. I love gray and pink. Used pink triangle beads in the scarf.

EggPendants Beaded a bunch of eggs and made them into pendants. These were have a wooden egg shaped core.

BagMade a crochet barrel bag to hold my knitting projects. This bag too FOREVER to make. I wanted the bag to be sturdy and crochet tightly. Made with Shibui Twig yarn.

Bail ForgedCollarTook Fred Zweig’s class on forged collars. Was able to make a couple collars and a bail. Really fun class. Fred has so much knowledge and is willing to share everything he knows.
