Happy Halloween!

Halloween is here already and Christmas will be here in no time! I've been busy making some new pieces of jewelry for the our Holiday open houses. In between creating jewelry I carved a couple of pumpkins. Here is a clone trooper and Jack Skellington.

Silver Mobius Pendant

I was given a challenge recently to create a Mobius pendant. One thick enough to be engraved with a message. Mobius pendants that we've seen in catalogs are already engraved and a friend of mine was not interested in any of the messages that were offered so she asked me if I could make her a Mobius pendant so she could put her own message on it.

I didn't think it would be too bad so I made one practice pendant so far. I made this one out of 12 gauge fine silver wire. I hammered the wire and fused the ends together then shaped the twist so the pendant flows nicely. Then I polished it up really shiny. I think this first one turned out great!! I'm really pleased with it. I don't think it is thick enough to get engraved so I ordered some 10 & 8 gauge wire to play with. Here is my first Mobius pendant...

Jacked Up Wire Wrapped Pendant

This stone is huge!!! This is a 60 carat clear quartz and it is deep! I've had the stone for a while and I've been doing a lot of thinking about how I should wrap this puppy. I love to look at other people's blogs and websites and I came across Carol Ladine's Blog and I saw her pendant that she wrapped and it was jacked up since the stone was so deep. That's just what I needed to do for this stone! This design won't use as much wire as I thought it would and it gives it a cool look. Thank you Carol!

Wire Wrapped Heart Stone

This was a cute custom order. The story was a girl was given a heart shaped stone from her boyfriend with a little note asking her to the Homecoming dance. The girls mom knew of the stone and snuck it away under her daughter's nose and brought it to me to be wrapped in silver in time for the Homecoming dance. This was all done without the daughter even noticing that the stone was missing! She loved it and wore the pendant to the dance! I love this story! The pendant was fun to do to!

Wedding Photos!!

I've had the pleasure of creating some jewelry for a wedding this past August which I've posted the jewelry already but I wanted to post a picture from the wedding to show the girls wearing their jewelry. Here's a picture with Val (the bride) with Briana. I made Val her earrings to match her necklace that she had already and Briana's earrings and necklace. Here's a picture with Val, Briana and Stephanie. Then Val and Stephanie. Aren't they beautiful!!!
