Yellow Jasper

This was comissioned and was quite a challenge because I had to listen to what my customer wanted. She did take my suggestions, but ultimately I did what she wanted. It was a really good exercise for me, although I did take a bit long about it, I think because of my self-confidence. She is thrilled with it though!!!!

Onyx earrings

I made these for fun, I liked the idea of the squiggles, and they were more of a challenge than I thought they would be!!

Harlequin Quartz Pendant

I began setting this stone when Nikki came to visit, we decided we need to have an aim when we meet. In this instance it was to improve our stone setting, and we had to do something we hadn't done before, so I did a 3 corner setting and once I had made the setting the rest of the pendant just presented itself to me, and I am so chuffed that it came out just as I could see it in my head!!!!! It has taken me a while, because I have too much going on in my life and have resolved to change that and spend more time making jewellery!!!!
