Getting Ready for my Open House

Yes, I'm having an OPEN HOUSE with Janet Smith on November the 22nd and 23rd at my house.  Although Janet doesn't currently make jewelry, she has lots of things she made and just didn't get around to selling it.  Sooo, together we're going to have a party.  I'm downloading some pictures of my recent pieces....mainly just my metal cuffs.  I need to take pictures of my rings, necklaces and bracelets and post them soon.


Getting Ready for my Open House on the 22nd and 23rd

I've got several pictures to post for new items I've recently made for my Open House but I'll just post a few at a time as it takes forever to download.  Next post I'll take pictures of some necklaces, bracelets and rings to post!

Guthrie Green Sunday Market

I just love the booth I share with my friend Terry!  She has such a unique decorating talent as you can see from our booth setup Sunday!

I am such a happy girl right now!  My sweet husband (aftering finding pictures of this bench throughout the house) bought me a beautiful hardwood bench at Christmas for my silversmithing activities.  And I bought a bench grinder last weekend (awaiting the polishing cloth from Amazon) to set on my new bench.  I also painted a pegboard to fit behind the bench and I've ordered a couple swing arm lamps for the bench that will give me enough light to torch, file, and polish my metal jewelry components.  So many ideas in my head of what I will create on that bench.  I'll take some pictures as soon as I get everything set up to show everyone!

New Designs in Time for Christmas

Made some new pieces for the boutique than sells my designs.  Here is a picture of some of those pieces.  Really would like to have a Christmas Open House but don't know if I can get that many more pieces made but I'll sure try!  If you see anything you like let me know, I will either hold it back from the shop or I'll make something similiar.  Remember everything is hand made so no two items are alike!

Another Tool for Metal Working

I have been using my friends machine to emboss metal for jewelry making and I decided to buy my own. I love it and I love all the designs I can now embellish on my metal!

Etching My Heart Out :)

I so enjoy etching metal. I use muriatic acid and I can only get about one etching per bath so I don't get many pieces etched at a time. I love riveting other metals to these pendants and making jewelry out of them! I have bike riding friends I think about whenever I see a bicycle! Perhaps a Christmas pendant for one of them :)
