...finally understand each other. It only took me 11 months to figure it out without pulling out the manual so I had to celebrate at 8am with this post! This beautiful students ring was cast later and sent to my jeweler for the stone settings, isn't it fabulous!!
A real live treasure hunter has been visiting my studio lately and wanted this custom ring made from a 1805 Mexican coin he found himself. I told him that I could make it look like it had been pulled out of the ground, just like his coin and the rock, arrowhead. and 1937 coin he gave me! He loved it!!
Pam wanted to come in and finish her large mask piece she carved and cast into silver in Lars casting class. She created 3 independent pieces that needed to be soldered together with a chain through the loop part. Pam loves mask's and I love her design! We also water casted her scrap silver then assembled and soldered the pieces into this beautiful pendant! It was a productive private class!
A cool custom mens wedding band was made today by folding the organic shaped silver sheet over a textured piece of copper. My friend Amy also came in and made herself a second ring with a beautiful Botswana agate stone!
Every once in a while I get inspired to gather up all of my unfinished projects to complete, examples to polish and tarnished jewelry to freshen up. This time I had a lot more than I expected and it took me a lot longer than I anticipated! Check them out in the gallery!
