On The Bench Now

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On my bench right now is the very beginning of a copper and silver pod. This shape is a favorite of mine to make and it’s done with the hydraulic press.

The second piece is a glass cab – is also just beginning and already since this morning it has changed 10 fold from this picture. Can’t wait to show it to you finished. I love it already and it’s not even done!

The earrings I posted just to show a simple design. These earrings are light weight, they completely close which customers love (they don’t worry about losing them) and you can add any stone for some fun color. I will show you those polished and done too. Moonstones will be going into the settings. The earwire for those earrings is one long piece of 20 gauge sterling either square wire or round. I prefer square. You then make the lever back earring out of one long piece of soldered on wire.

The last picture ~ What am I going to do with these bronze coins???????????????????? I soldered jumprings to them thinking I would incorporate them into an ancient looking chain of some sort but that has not struck my fancy. Any ideas????
