I have two juried shows the first two weekends of May. I sold most of my metal components during my last sale. So last week I was playing catch up, and making some components for jewelry.
Here is the bronze clay in a couple different stages..................
My dear friend Lisa Peters also said she'd take some of my butterfly cuffs with her to Bead and Button. I am so honored. Here are some that I made, most are much smaller then the one in her bracelet, but not everyone likes massive jewelry like her and I. They just need patina.
Here is the cuff I made for her, that she plans to wear. Its a mix of her beads and mine.
So here are the two trays. I made lots of sets for earrings, lots of bracelet connectors (sprials, lichens and ammonites), some crazy sea urchins for necklaces, and bunches of winged things.
Now I need to get crackin and make lots and lots of jewelry! Tomorrow you can see the stash I got from Bead Fest Philly over the weekend, with all that, and my bronze, I should have plenty of new and exciting things to work with. Wish me luck!
