What the Heck Have I Been Up To?

I know, I know, It's been a while since I've talked about my own work. Well, I have been working on some more of those Fine Silver pieces. I hope my new jewelry scale shows up in the mail soon. I can then price some of these and have them listed for sale in my shop. Here's a preview of a pendant that I'm pretty darn proud of:

You may recognize it from my earlier post on firing Fine Silver in my little beehive kiln. It's amazing to see the finished piece. The oxidation process was cool, as you never know exactly what color you will end up with. I used the boiled egg method to oxidize this piece as well as several others. I love the results!

I've also been working on some new decoupage pieces, some of which are already listed in my shop. I have been on a vintage kick lately so I thought these vintage cartoons would look great on a pendant.

They are strung on 16" sheer ribbon but can be made with a 14" ribbon on request to be more suited to fit a child (as any of my pendants may be made). I still have plenty of Japanese Chiyogami pendants in my shop any many waiting to be listed, like this one.

And, I have some new earrings, some with vintage beads, recylced pieces, and a bit different from my previous pieces.

There are so many pieces waiting to be listed so keep an eye on this blog or on my Flickr page to see the very latest. You may even snag something before it gets listed! If you are interested in purchasing anything that you see here or on Flickr but don't see it in my shop, you may always leave me a comment here, or you can contact me through my Etsy shop and don't forget to leave me your email address so that I may contact you directly.

  1. Oh, WOW! I just LOVE the flowered oxydized silver pendant. That came out really nice! It looks good with the bead and suede too. Your other things are nice too, but that pendant really caught my eye.
