Play Day Enameled Pendant

I got together with friends to play with enamels. Made the round copper enameled piece, used a stencil to make the design and some gold leaf. Put it together with a long rock I drilled holes into.

Shard Pendant

I finally got around to cutting up an old mug to use pieces in my jewelry. The middle swirl is a piece of the mug. The top piece is a polished stone, not sure what it is, maybe mookaite??

New Bracelet

I bought these two pieces of Chinese Writing Stone eons ago. Finally got a chance to use them.

ChineseWritingStoneBraceletI really like how this turned out even though it’s a simple and easy bracelet. When worn it’s really comfy, can’t even feel it on my wrist.

Couple Of Rings

FlouriteRingRemake

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.

Practice Piece

After taking Joanna Gollberg’s class I wanted to practice what I learned. This was supposed to be a bracelet but it turned out really chunky and I lost one of the stones and a setting. So I turned it into a necklace. It’s still chunky and I would like to have more stones which I might add at a later date.

JoannaGollbergPracticePieceI’m happy I’m getting the hang of soldering several points without melting anything.

Box Bead Necklace and Other Things

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

SilverBoxBeadNecklace

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.
