I have been very busy as usual. I have a show coming up next weekend. I don’t really have very high hopes as I think it is a lower end show. But hopefully I will have some luck. You just never know when the right buyer will find you.
I have been working on getting my stock ready for next weekend and the other things coming up. Here are some of the items I have been working on.
I made a couple of rings:
And I made a bunch of earrings:
I have a couple of other things in the works. We did some casting in class on Monday and I have some great things that came of that. However, I am still in the clean up phase and will hopefully have something for that next week.
I made this set for my husbands cousin, Holly. I wanted to post these pictures here so she could see them. Hopefully she likes them.
They are made with Unakite and 14k gold-filled wire. I hand made the ear wires. The earrings are just shy of 2″ long from the top of the ear wire to the bottom swirl.
Today I visited a local jewelry shop that is hosting an art festival this Saturday. I took in my pieces and the owner was blown away and loved my work. She has asked me to inventory and mark my pieces and she will be displaying and (hopefully) selling them on Saturday. YAY! She is going to start taking in artist works and selling them on consignment and she told me to be thinking about that after the art festival. I am very excited about getting my name out there a little bit more. Hopefully I will be able to drum up some more sales.
This is a pair of earrings to match the Sleek and Simple Pendant posted below. They are made with 6mm black onyx and sterling silver. The ear wires are soldered to the back of the earrings.
