Hi all! Just wanted to share my newest design line of jewelry. I'm really excited about this addition to me repetroi. I also posted a couple photos in my gallery and will try to add more as I can. These are high end pieces using silver plated wire, semi precious stones, and crystals as well as glass and metal beads.
That said the most important part are the focal beads! I made them myself (of course!). I had to learn a whole new technique for getting the holes into these beads as they run differently than my usual beads and pendants. The largest are a little over an inch wide and the hole runs from side to side rather than front to back. That is a long hole to get clear of glaze let me tell you! There are 3 different sized leaf beads that I made in this piece the smallest only about 1/2 of an inch and the largest dangle bead on the necklace over an inch.
I hope you like them and hope a little hope for me since I used them in our art centers yearly competition.

I'm a self taught artist. I've been painting, drawing, creating my whole life. I participated in art festivals for years but now concentrate mostly on Internet sales, galleries and shops. For the past 10 years I have primarily focused on pet portraiture and Pugs in particular. Recently I have begun taking ceramics classes and am thrilled to be expanding my artistic repertoire. I hope to blend my painting background with ceramics to create new and exciting pieces.
