These are some pieces that have found new homes in recent weeks Late September has been a good time to sell.This first piece is a ceramic piece I made. A bit Boho with a fabric necklace.
This a copper wire with a Raku bead
Shoulder duster earrings
A fall necklace
A bit more romantic
This combines my sense of whimsy with an antique doll.
More whimsy skull dancer is one of my faves.
This to me is dream like 3d hand made backing hammered to fit
Finally some simple little earrings. Each piece comes with a little bit of my heart, born from my imagination and built with my hands. And now going to enhance some ones life. That is what it is all for. Creating to create a smile.
Today I made a set of Old Rose Copper leaf jewelry. The components mostly come from https://www.bsueboutiques.com my favorite supplier. The leaves are connected by jump rings so there is movement in the pendant
The necklace is pure copper 24 inches with a magnetic closure
Earrings are hung on Niobium hooks, lightweight strong and non allergenic.
I made this ring riveted with a 3/32 rivet and covered that with a small green cab of Czech glass
That is the only spot of color in the set.
The shank is a cigar band style adjustable size.
The bracelet is simply chain and leaf with a magnetic catch. The chain is non soldered links so it attaches just by opening the link and closing it after inserting the links through the opening in the leaf.
This is the whole set and all the tools required were a punch and pliers. Plus a riveter. Some times the easy projects are good ones. This link will take you to my shop. https://www.etsy.com/listing/469102050/handmade-old-rose-ox-antique-copper
