Wire Work Earrings

Here are some metal earrings I have been making in the last couple of days.
The Top and Bottom image is Amazonite briolettes, Center is labradorite. All 3 have first been
wire wrapped. Then I have soldered fine silver to make a ring. The left and center images have both been hammered flat then stamped, then patinaed in liver of sulfur to give them a more rustic look. The bottom one has not been stamped or patinaed. It was tumbled to bring it to a brilliant shiney finish.

New Pottery Pendants

These just came out the kiln. An assortment of pendants. Some are my first experiments with glass. I love working with the glass and the color combinations. It adds a little pizzazz to the pieces.
