I worked diligently in the studio again last night. Trying to do a little more technique based jewelry instead of just whipping things out. I know the first and third aren't really technical pieces but they took a little more forethought to put together.
This first necklace uses a focal bead that I recently got from Michele at Gabriel. I was thinking I might submit this piece for the Winter issue of Stringing but I'm not sure it's magazine worthy. I used some mother of pearl rings, frosted glass rice, labradorite, sage amethyst, and an awesome new toggle from Kathy Domokos of AD Adornments.
The second necklace features a lovely polymer, stamped pendant from Heather Wynn. I wire-wrapped top-drilled pearls in khaki and teal, dangled little brass drops (Ad Adornments), biwa pearls in white, a Mamacita Beadworks pewter bird bead, and Vintaj brass chain with a little pearl and acorn dangle. I hand made the clasp out of a dragonfly connector.
And then the third necklace is based on a design I had done before with jasper and pewter and chain. This one uses etched chain from Ad Adornments, a pewter toggle from green girl studios, a faceted carnelian marble, and some lovely Mystic Blue Feldspath flat ovals.
If I can get these three listed before the 7 o'clock hour, I'll be pleased! :)
