I am back to my routine....my sister left yesterday after 12 days. I am so tired, I don't know why, maybe it is from talking and laughing all the time... whatever it may be I am taking today and working in my studio. That is my relaxation, my quiet place and no one bothers me. I have a show in a few weeks and need to get going on some new pieces, so today I felt rather productive and will share with you a few of the pieces I made.
Stormy Skies , has a pendant created from an old mother of pearl shoe clip. I love the shimmer and vintage look it adds to the piece. Black mother of pearl and black matte beads are wire wrapped in sterling and oxidized, and then buffed just enough to bring out a little shine.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Making a charm bracelet is a great way to use all those little things we seem to collect, and we all do, we just can't seem to part with some things. A vintage link chain is the base for this whimsical collection of doo dads. A handmade lampwork bead adds a little color. You can find this in my Etsy shop.
