Labradorite Stone Got Wrapped

I bought a labradorite stone a while ago and have wanted to wrap it but just haven't found the right style. I decided to use a fine 28 gage fern weave. I really like it but buggered it up while securing it in the back. I'm not going to re-do because I'm going to keep it for myself. It has a little divot in the center of the stone but a beautiful flash. Since its my first wrap of this style, I'm keeping it. For now anyway. Here she is.............

187th and Tori Royal Icing Cookies for my Man

Brian goes to a Militarty National Reunion where he has a booth showing his collection of Airborne  wings, military historic collections and cool stuff. He and his trading buddys have a good time and so I volunteered to make cookies.



As always, I plan to never make another cookie as long as I live.

Another Sunday another pendant.

This bead goes way back. Always knew I would do something with it one day. Here it is with out patina.

And shortly after with a lovely brown and warm Liver of Sulfer treatment followed with a dip in a protective coating to seal it all up nicely.



 I'm always second guessing photographs because I don't have a professional studio. 



 This one is close.

Maybe tomorrow I can kill more time and set up the light box for a third try and see if I can get a shot I'm happy with.

Vets and Pets

Paws has a fundraiser coming up in October so its time to start making stock. Price of copper wire gauges 14 and 16 went up so will my prices. Too bad.

Here is a totally made today piece. Other than the bead which came from my never ending supply of torch bead bowl beads.

It is not as heavy as my last few, that have sold I might add, but it can hold its own. Ok then.

Wire Commissions

The trick is getting two alike.



A client bought Copper earrings and needed a necklace to wear with them.


Another client need earrings to go with three necklaces so I provided her a selection.
