Bench Chaos, earrings and a necklace

What a great day in the studio. My bench was full chaos which I love, it always means lots of projects in the works. Today I created three pairs of earrings and one necklace. The earrings are all sterling silver hollow form. Two are cute little stud earrings and the other is a great dangle. The necklace is a recycled sterling silver piece with a black fresh water pearl, it hangs on a 16 inch black rubber cord. They are all stunning. They will at the trunk show coming up. Hope to see you all there.

For the first time this winter we got some snow. The studio looks great with all the snow and Quinn looks very comfortable in the in the chair. He is taking a short break from playing. It is nice to finally have some snow. Quinn loves it. I personally don't mind not having snow but it wouldn't be winter in New England without it.

Smokey Quartz Necklace

This is a great new necklace that I finished yesterday. It is a bezel set smokey quartz and a hollow from. You can not see the amazing texture in the picture, it was created using the rolling mill and it is a very slight wave pattern. It hangs on a 16 inch rubber cord. It is amazing on! It looks great not only with a pair of jeans and a tee shirt but it would looks amazing dressed up for a night out on the town.

A new hammer

Yesterday I got a new hammer. We had a nice morning out and about in the nice and unseasonably warm weather and at a flea market found this great vintage hammer for only a few dollars. I could not resit it. It is a fabulous hammer. I am excited to use this week.

Black Onyx Necklace

This is a fabulous necklace that I have finally finished. It is beautiful. The top part is a hollow form out of sterling silver with my trademark cutout lines, that have been oxidized. The bottom stone is a huge black onyx that has been bezel set. It hangs from a think snake chain. I gave the top hollow form a brushed finish to contrast with the high shine of the black onyx. An amazing necklace.

Earrings and Bench

The above earrings are already on there way to New Jersey. They have my favorite texture created using vintage letter and number stamp. The bottom photo is of bench and a project that I am working on. It nice to finally have my energy back. After being sick it took me a while to be able to work a full day. I am surprised on much it took out of me.
I hope that everyone has had wonderful holidays and that the New Year is being good to you already.
