|Earrings From Tarnished & True|
|Antarctica Statement Ring|
I've joined in with some other artist bloggers in showing my work/progress in the studio every wednesday! (It is the button on my sidebar that says WOMWW if you're interested in joining in too!)
I had a lot of fun making a bunch of dangly beaded earrings. You may remember that MyBoy gifted me a new hammer...well I tried it out and look at all the fun texture I added to the metal teardrops! I love texture (and hammers).
Maybe the piece I am most proud of to date is this big turquoise ring! It took me forever to make it, and some serious trials, sweat, and blood...but isn't it fantastic?!?! I love to push myself when I am designing, and this ring was definitely above and beyond my comfort level. I must have soldered that bezel four times before I got it to sit solidly. Working in metal certainly isn't forgiving, that's for sure, so I am just thrilled to have finished this piece (I am in love with the stone!).
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my work. I leave you with a quote I was recently inspired by:
