Last post I briefly described the kinds of necklaces I make and I thought I'd show some of my recent work. I've been making a lot of jewelry lately, necklaces especially, even though I'm not quite done with my BSBP creation. It's my way to 'warm up,' like I do before I go for a run--a little stretching, jump up and down a bit, wave my arms around, hammer a toggle clasp, etc.
|Here's a close-up of the necklace that's left-of-center in the previous photo. In this photo, |
left to right, is pyrite, quartz, carnelian, and a sparkly druzy that had such a tiny hole
I had to string it on super fine beading wire (snuck some pearls in there, see that?)
|It can be worn doubled, as a shorter--|
but not strangling--choker. It can also be
wrapped around the wrist as a bracelet.
This is one of my favorites. It looks equally good with a t-shirt and jeans or a little black something. I'm into the clear quartz faceted nuggets, folks. Big time:) I think they look edgy with a little gunmetal something.
|I think the inclusion on this piece of jasper looks like a little|
bird sitting on a branch (turn your head to the left, I can't get
the picture rotated). A lil' bird, or chipa, right Cass?
