In the Works

 
 

 



I have been working in the studio making rings, bracelets and earrings...and having a blast!  I have to say that I love working with metal as much as I love melting glass.  I feels good to learn new skills and work at improving them.  I have acquired a cabochon machine and will be making my own stones soon. 

I hope to have a few pieces for sale soon!

Thanks for looking!

A Silver Lining!

I have been creating with silver lately, and love working metal!  Now to have metal meet glass...

I took an online class by Leslie Kail Villarreal.  After making the class project, I made the above bracelet...all components are hand made with the exception of the bezel cups.  After etching the silver, I fabricated the cone for the center stone, ground down the faceted smokey topaz stones into cabochons and made the domed flowers and leaves.  I am very happy with the results.
