oh, boy. I've been resisting jewelry making for some time, knowing that I don't have room for more STUFF in my house. But I've succumbed (sp?).
Here are some funky steampunk necklaces I made from thrift store finds and old watch parts:
And some cocoon bead bracelets (a Nina Bagley invention taught to me by Diana):
And the jewel in the crown: a pendant I made in a class with Carl Stanley. This is done 100% from scratch, with sheets of sterling silver, copper, sterling wire, a Cubic Zirconia, and found objects. There are eight (count 'em!) cold connections in this baby, including three kinds of handmade rivets, folding tabs, and staples. What a learning experience!
