Copper and Silver

I need to work on my photography skills! But this is a cooper piece I etched and I added a sterling silver piece that is hand stamped "WISDOM".

Fibers and Paint??

I'm using some fibers in my latest creations. I'm also wire wrapping chain..just something new to learn. I'm always wanting to learn a new technique!

I've also started stripping furniture and painting it and I'm so in love with the entire process. Everything right now is getting painted with black paint and I'm distressing and waxing the bare spots. I'll take a picture to add to this blog sometime!

Can you say go OSU / OU?! I was asked by my sons school secretary to make some Union School jewelry which the colors are OU. However, an avid OSU fan standing next to her said I must also make some OSU pieces! So......hence, OSU and OU jewelry. I only have these earrings made but I'll soon be working on necklaces and bracelets!

Rosary Necklace

I've been interested in designing rosary necklaces. No, I am not catholic but I think the symbolism behind a rosary is interesting. I am a Christian so I just love the cross and the picture of the Virgin Mary. This also gives me a chance to work on my wire wrapping skills. I haven't really done much wire wrapping but I'm really enjoying it. I also just made a pearl wire wrapped necklace with silver wrapped fibers in the middle of it. I'll try to get a picture of it this week so I can post it.

Victorian Earrings

When I spent a weekend with my friend Debbie, she made some beautiful earrings so I had to try to make a pair when I returned home. I'm really into making longer earrings! I need to spend more time actually "making" jewelry than watching what everyone else is making.
