About Me

I have always made jewelry. I started out making earrings for friends when I was 8 or 10 and has continued through the years. I love to figure out ways to create a new pair of earrings or a pendant or to make something from trash that someone else threw away.

I've been considering working with a new medium the last few months and I finally got the nerve to just do it! Its called Precious Metal Clay. It is reclaimed silver mixed with a binder that when fired either in a kiln or by a torch becomes .999 pure silver. I Love It! I've made 4 pendants, one of which has become mine through trial and error. Err ehh humm.... Anyway, its a little harder to work with than just forging out metal since it is in clay form until you fire it.

I'm very proud of my 3 pendants that survived my forming, sanding and filing. Not to mention I'm glad they didnt have a melt down!

Here is a quick peek as to what they look like. Sorry, taken from my phone :(

I have a few more ideas and hope to make a couple more creations in the next few weeks!
