I'm still short on time, so no torching or metalwork this week - I hate that!! I've got soooo many ideas that my sketch book is getting full. I had to make something, though, so whipped up a batch of earrings last night. At least I got to hammer stuff and make headpins and earwires! Made my first pair of long kidney earwires, too. These are fun, and show off smaller stones really well. I'll be making more, I think. Here's a sampling of yesterday's work, more are up on my Etsy shop. First, a pair of copper hoops that were patina'd with the torch. Then there is some great deep blue lapis on my handmade kidney earwires, and finally a pair using some georgeous bloodstone beads I've had for a while.
