Little pearl

This pendant is super tiny, that is a 5mm stone. I’m having fun making tiny things these days… which is ironic because I have so much trouble seeing tiny things. Thank goodness for magnification!

Bronze clay Pendant

Here is another pendant that I made from bronzclay. Once again I set a cabochon that I made. This pendant is actually an earlier one that I forgot to photograph. I was messing around with using the small silver balls… which I love! And then I set the cz in and embeddable prong setting. I think it is kind of fun. Anyway, I’ve got sooo many ideas for this metal clay floating about in my head, and even tools to try but with the dreaded illness running amok in our house I have not been getting much done! However, I have high hopes for this weekend. DH is scampering off to San Francisco with the girls to visit family so I plan to play and experiment! Wish me luck!

YOJ – Silver Core Pendant

It is quite satisfying to pound silver and not break the glass! As you can see below there have been a few casualties… oh well, you win some you lose some. Kinda like how my morning is going, two of my family members were totally grumpy and unpleasant and two of us were happy. What can you do? You win some, you lose some I guess. Hopefully everyone will be in good spirits by tonight! (Fingers crossed!) 🙂

Swirly Heart Pendant

I love this new design! I even soldered a little on this piece and I really like it… I can’t wait to get back from our trip to play with a few other ideas that I have. I also filed the ends of the swirls so that they are tapered which I think is a nice effect. Anyway, just thought I shoulld kick off my Year of Jewelry 2008! Gotta get busy, time just flies when you are making jewelry. 😀

YOJ – Purple Heart Pendant

I’m so into these pendants! I’ve made a bunch of cool hearts I just need to add all the cool little doo-dads that I have for them! It is amazing what a few weeks off can do to spart my creativity. I’ve also been making some new boro charms which I also really like and I hope you like them too because I can’t seem to stop myself from making them. Ha! 😀 Anyway, hope you are having a great weekend, I’ll have more new beads on Tuesday.
