Sari Silk adds Pop!

I Love using Sari Silk to add "pop" to my jewelry pieces. This necklace was fun, I hand stamped some 24 gauge copper, then placed it in some liver of sulfer to antique it then added some charms. It was so fun to make! I can't wait for next Saturday. I'm teaching a form folding class at the Beadles next week and I'm so excited. Teresa at the Bead shop made a form folded cuff using 24 gauge brass and it turned out so awesome, think I'll try to make one using Brass myself!

Color Drenched Metal

I purchased some patina and the tutorial from called "Color Drenched Metal". I love the colors and the look of coloring the metal. I then riveted some lattice on top of the cross. Lovin the way it turned out.

I Love Resin!

I so enjoy working with Resin. I taught a class on how to pour resin and prepare your materials and I always put together some besels for myself so we can use up all the resin we mix. I've got some ideas on what I want to do with these pendants and I can't wait to start working on them. Since I live in Oklahoma, the city is shut down due to 18" of snow fall so I guess I have no excuse on not making some jewelry pieces. I've also make a copper stamped necklace and I'll try to post that soon!
