I have been having fun playing with metal, grunging it up a bit, searching, experimenting, making marks. My jewelry is very similar to my journaling, only with metal and or beads instead of paper. It's about making a mark, seeing how it feels, and then going with it. How it feels is always key to everything I do.

It's been another rough week of headaches. I just got around to listing some new items I worked on last weekend. I have been drawn back to my favorite deep warm colors.......I love feeling so comfortable and just plain good.
Both of these are available in my shop...I hope you stop by. Thanks for all your support.

Lynn Davis pendant as a platform. This resined clock pendant by Lynn is pretty incredible, in quality and detail. It looks ancient, one of my favorite looks, and there is so much detail. I used galvanized steel for most of the links, but the clasp and corkscrew links are all sterling. The vintage lock seemed perfect to finish this piece. Clockwork is available in my etsy shop here.
Things have been really busy here lately, a lot of life stuff. I find it hard to balance what I need to do and what I want to do...how about you?
As always , thanks for visiting. I always welcome your comments!
