New work part 2 – enamels!

You know I love color!  It really makes me happy to “play” with my enamels to make designs come alive with color and pattern.

I am in love with this new design (so much so that I’ve already made smaller pendants that would be great gift items!).  I am calling this small series “Lace”.

Black lace (enamel and sterling silver). $185

As I’ve said before, one of the beauties of enamel work (and this pattern) is that each piece will be a little different from the other.  You won’t see anyone else wearing your exact necklace.

For fun, I made a couple more fold formed bowls.  These two are shallower than the other two I had made, but still suitable for rings, trinkets, dodads, or whatever needs a bowl to sit in!

Dramatically different colors here!  I like giving choice!  $65 each.

As I mentioned yesterday, if you see something that has your name on it send me a message and I will keep it out of the show for you.

I’m hoping to have a few more photos tomorrow, but I’ll have to see how the packing of the vehicle goes.  Believe me, it can get tricky getting the display, the tent, the dummy, the jewellery, etc, etc, + us into the car.

Keep well,

Spring or summer?

I was going to say these new necklaces were spring colors, but I realized one of them makes me think of summer!  You’ll have to decided for yourself….  Either way the colors in both of these necklaces are just so fresh! First up an Aquamarine and Larimar necklace.  The one thing I discovered about larimar… Continue Reading

Still here!

No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth.  I’ve just been playing with gemstones.  Boy is that fun, I mean FUN – ’cause of course it’s all about color! I have a lot of colored stones in my collection (which I’ve mentioned before – the teensy hoarding problem, an occupational hazard).  I really… Continue Reading
