Artisan Jewelry...Still

Hopefully, this will be a better image to show off what I am doing. The bracelet on the left is the copper one I mentioned earlier. The multi-colored bead necklace on the right had one of the charms flipped up from the pendant when I snapped the photo and I didn't notice it. So, envision that one with the two center charms so they are all hanging down.I love making these.

The pendant in the center has a stone we "mined" in Franklin, NC two years ago and tumbled and polished ourselves. I love how the wire mimics the shape of the stone, and no....that was not by accident!

Susan the jewelry is beautiful. I especially love the middle piece. It reminds me of a resting butterfly.

Thanks Vicki! It reminds me of a resting butterfly, too. I have signed up for an all-day workshop in artisan jewelry making next Thursday so if my hands hold up all day I should have some more designs to show. I'm really looking forward to that.

I like the closed butterfly, too, and the copper bracelet!
