Still Inspired and Making More Jewelry

IMG_2314

Still enjoying my recent burst of creativity, I felt like wrapping more pendants, making earrings and even a bracelet. The broken pendant I wrapped recently left me with a hankering to do more.

I had a Calcite cab already so I wrapped it in the square copper wire I bought for the last project.

IMG_2303Still not satisfied, I wrapped a Lapis,  free form stone in a different style with sterling silver wire.

IMG_2311I moved on to earrings.  These simple pair are Smokey Quartz with sterling silver.  I made the ear wires as well.

IMG_2388The bracelet below was cut from sterling silver sheet, textured with a hammer.  I made some jump rings, spirals and attached some beads along with a toggle clasp.

I actually kept going after this but I’ll save that for another post.

    I am very inspired by your work. Would love to attempt the etching process, but I haven’t been able to find the mordant near me.

    Keep on creating.

    Thanks,

    Moe
