Nature: My Inspiration

Much of my inspiration comes from nature.  Here are a few shots taken using my phone while out walking.

Nothing has been altered or enhanced.  Mother Nature is amazing! I get so much joy from nature and my daily walks are my mediation.  Enjoy!

Some Things To Come…………

Some things to come.  Now that my little one is in kindergarten I have some time to do some creating. I do miss having her around though but it is all a part of the cycle of life. So I am embracing it and getting to work!

Some pictures of my works in progress.  Hopefully some lovely jewelry that you all will love to be created with these.

I am practicing with some rustic soldering of brass pieces.  hand cutting the brass and copper for some of the bases.

Others are pre made brass bases.

Some vintage brass stampings to add to the bases.

Some birds, cicadas, cat, bulldog, Egyptian revival, sea horse and even a flower that I solder two three leaf petals together and then soldered the blue rhinestone.  Some even have a fossilized appeal which I love! these have been cleaned and filed but still need some more filing, hammering and perhaps some patina to bring out the highlights.  We shall see.

Hope you enjoyed looking. Remember if you click on the photos they will enlarge for better viewing.
