New work!

 I went on a bit of a bracelet bender.  I've been having fun wire wrapping beads and putting them together to form bracelets.  I read somewhere that this Fall and Winter that bracelets are the thing, no wrist will go unadorned!  Ha!  I don't really follow trends.  I've made all the toggles in these pieces, and wire wrapped all the beady goodness by hand.  Now my hands have calluses, my nails are a mess and the skin around my first finger and thumb don't look so hot. 

 My ode to Autumn, my favorite season.  I was going through my stones and pulled these three together.  Together they gave me a fiery appearance.  I knew just what I wanted to do with them.... the leaves are from a tree in our yard pressed into sterling clay then fired to 1500 degrees emerging as solid sterling silver.  I really love this piece  :)

More stars and moons!  I am continually adding new pieces with the stars and the moons.  It has become a collection really, and a collection needs a name!     Celestial.    Original right?  ;)
I'm still debating on giving them their own section.  I think they might deserve it.  Especially since I have several more pieces on the bench I hope to be able to list this week.

All these pieces are listed in my Etsy Shop    I already have a trio of new earrings to share with you this week and I hope to have a few other things too!

Coming soon...

I've had this picture as the wallpaper on my phone for awhile now. Every time I looked at it, it was a stabbing reminder to get back to my stars and moons.
I am in full production on 5 necklaces, 3 skinny cuffs, 2 rings, and 3 pairs of earrings. Whoa!
It's time to start getting my shop ready for Holiday shoppers.

I did have someone ask me if I ever did this design less oxidized or GASP not oxidized at all. Nope. Not really. ;)

Be back soon. Have a good week!
