Spring is around the corner!

Spring is trying very hard to emerge...it is slow this year but I see signs it won't be long...time is flying by though. There never seems to be enough time to do everything that needs/I want to do!

Here are a few new pieces...
A choker style necklace made from bone rondelles, and agate barrel beads, finished with sterling silver findings...a pair of earrings hanging from hand made sterling ear wires completes the set...perfect summer colors!

Turquoise is a favorite of mine but then I'm sure everyone is aware of that...five gorgeous chunky nuggets, the center acutally looks like a heart of sorts (chalk turquoise which has been stabilized and dyed)spaced with fire engine red glass rondelles and Bali beads, the smaller turquoise nuggets are Blue Spider Web nuggets and are natural)...finished with a striking sterling silver toggle clasp...of course earrings to go along with the necklace

This is a fun piece...wood beads spaced between plump glass beads...copper and brown again a favorite combo of mine...

Last for today...my first attempt at fusing...a fine silver link chain bracelet, each link and the clasp are hand cut, fused, hammered for strength and tumbled to a sparkling shine...I know my photography skills leave much to be desired but it does sparkle...
Enjoy...
Cheers
