I've been busy this week trying to get stuff listed in my Artfire shop and also trying to come up with some new earrings in the under $30.00 price range. The first pair are little ribbons of copper sheet that I textured, drilled and folded before adding a dangling pyrite briolette. I was happy with how they turned out.
The second pair are gorgeous seafoam green hydro quartz briolettes that I coiled and wrapped in fine silver.
Last are some impression jasper beads that I've had for ages in a simple wrap of fine silver with balled ends.
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
