I forgot to add this to my new pendants that I completed. I wore it today while at the skating rink. I got several comments on it. I absolutely love this stone, it looks like you could go swimming in it.
I have some new pieces that I have been working on. Tonight I will be adding a section specifically for Angels on my website. I had some pretty good feedback from some of my target audience on them. Here are the newest angels.
This one is actually pretty small. Only just over an inch.
More of my Circle Collection. Hahaha
I think this might actually be Adventurine, but I am not certain. I don’t think it is Jade.
Glass Pearls and Garnets
This next pendant is my very first bezel piece. It turned out really neat. It still needs to be cleaned up, but I like it a lot. You can’t really tell, but the stone is set in a domed piece that is then attached to the diamond shaped sheet.
I have been in such a creative funk lately. I would do some pendants and not be happy with how they turned out. I still have several pendants sitting in my studio just waiting to be re-worked. I have now caught up with my YOJ pieces, however, many of them aren’t on theme. I still need to photograph my Take Flight pieces. I have taken some pictures of my newest pendants, but will have to redo the photos when I have some decent light. As it is, midnight pictures will have to do.
I have decided to add a new section to my blog called Angels. I might as well since I seem to be really good at making them. I think I might add a section to my web site for strictly angel pendants. I wonder if they would be a good seller or not. hmmmmm. I guess they wouldn’t be too bad since I only have one angel left. And I haven’t dared post that on my site.
Anyway, I was chatting with one of my online friends and she was telling me about her sister and the baby her sister lost. So I made another angel. I really like the way this one turned out. The arms look like they are actually holding a baby even. This is a smaller one and is only 2″ long.
Well, I have been MIA for a little bit. Kate (my 6 month old) and I have had that nasty cold that has been going around. On of January 28th I took another course to learn bezel setting stones. It was really fun and I learned a lot of new techniques. I made a beautiful pendant and ring. I haven’t taken any picture of them yet, but I will soon.
I was asked to make another Angel pendant for my cousin. Here is a picture of one that I have made. I think I may add an angel section to my website and post pictures of various angels that I have made.
Seeing the picture I can see that I need to make a few minor adjustments to the wings, but other than that, it didn’t turn out too bad. I also see that I need to work on making sure things are centered with the binding wires. Live and Learn I guess.
