Flower Pendant

The photo doesn't do this justice, I cut out the shape and then hammered it into a 3D shape, it has turned out the way I imagined it, and am really pleased with it. Will definitely do some more 3D pieces.

Curly Earrings

This pic isn't so great, but the earrings are fun, and turned out really nicely.

Carnelian Earrings

December has been quite hectic with all the preparations, and so I haven't had time to post all the things I have been doing. I have also been trying, without success to take better photos, but hopefully in the New Year, I will be able to go and take lessons from someone who really knows what he is doing!!! Watch this space, in the meantime, here are the earrings I made Mum for Christmas, they are clip-ons and I think they turned out quite nicely, I hope Mum likes them.

Earrings with squiggles

These earrings evolved from a couple of ideas on sweat soldering, and just kept evolving until they were done? Sometimes you just have to let it happen.

Domes with hoops

These hoops started out as something different that didn't work out, and the domes were going to be a bead, but I was playing around with pieces on my table, and they clicked together and just worked. The pic doesn't really do them justice.

Mother of pearl pendant

This pendant was inspired by the mother of pearl button that I set in it. I found the button in my mother's button tin.

Smoky quartz ring

I love smoky quartz, hope this ring does justice, although the picture doesn't.
