Creative weekend - Making Jewelry

Sunday, May 04, 2014

I'm so excited! Yesterday was an exciting day for me . . . I designed and worked my first set of copper earrings from start to finish . . . . starting with an idea and a bare sheet of copper, cutting, repeatedly grinding, firing, pounding, and polishing . . . then putting it all together.

My first earrings, Pounded Copper with Swarovski Crystals

Necklace and earrings - Lampworks glass beads with copper & Onyx

Turquoise on Woven copper bracelet & pounded copper earrings

Some of the other pieces I've made for Tammy who has a gift shop and is opening a Steam Punk Café.

Fun stuff . . . I'm thankful that my creative juices are flowing again.

How are YOU doing??

    emoticon I'm so glad you posted these...they're wonderful. I especially like the turquoise necklace and earrings, and the last pic filled with fun stuff -- my younger daughter is really into that style of steampunk jewelry. How did you figure out you were so talented?
