Having Fun With Solder

I completed two pieces from my recent pile of experimentation. One a bit more simple and the other with a bit more “pizzaz”. ( but not really!)

I have been contemplating if I should add some bling….. what do you think.  As a reminder here is part of the pile I have been creating: solder

The two pieces I finished aren’t even in this shot but here they are:

Thanks for looking and more to come.  Now I need a name for a new shop since these are so different from my vintage assemblage pieces like this

……things to contemplate

A New Challenge

So you know they saying “new year, new you”….well how about “new year new line”….. of jewelry! That is what it is going to be for me.  I joined the Build A Line Challenge along with 48 other exceptional jewelry designers and creators!

My jewelry tends to be eclectic and one of a kind.  I love using vintage pieces in my designs.  While I love this eclectic look it is not for everyone.  Many like to wear jewelry that “matches” or coordinate with other pieces. This is why I decided to join the challenge.  You can read more about the challenge here.  Not only is it a wonderful challenge but also class taught by Brenda Sue Lansdowne of B’Sue Boutiques, on learning how to make a cohesive line.  I am looking forward to the journey and hope you will follow along with us!

There will be three blog hops, the first on Jan. 23! So you will have to wait until the 23rd to see what I have come up with so far!

I will leave you with some photos of some jewelry that I have created over the years.

Another Ice Linky Party

Can’t believe April is almost over.  Time for another Friday Ice Linky party hosted by Vintiquities Workshop.  Check it out for some amazing creations using Ice Resin.

I made this necklace by first adding Iced Enamels into the bezel.  Added the Ice Resin and then a vintage brass heart and then some more Ice Resin.  Instead of using chain I used some sari ribbon.  Vintage beads were randomly wired to the sari ribbon.

Having so much fun with Ice Resin and Iced Enamels!
