Figuring it out!

hello again! I am back this soon. ha. BUT I wanted to show yall a few of the pieces I have put up and made which I am very proud of.

This one on the left here, this is a piece of Red Poppy Jasper with Thai silver findings, soothingly put with small round smoky quartz. I love this necklace. It makes me feel balanced and was really nice to wear this fall.

I've really taken to making wire wrapped rings either with beads/stones or without. It is sort of funny because I played a lot of sports in high school and never wore that much jewelry besides some stunning silver hoops from Claires. It is nice to know that growing up comes with recognition of beautiful things and the acknowledgment of what class actually is.

This ring on the left is made with 14k Gold Fill wire with a piece of smoky quartz. I love this ring because even though it is very simple it has structure. I also love that it is off center, and that the wire shows that it is on purpose. It is a size 9. I really love working with the fine wire, it is soft but strong.

I love this ring too. It is made from copper wire. I love it because it makes me feel free through the design - it is open but there is a purpose. I try to make all of my rings with a structure but different each time. This ring is a size 5.5.

In all my jewelry, I make an effort to use every piece of material I can but in doing so, try to make each piece unique and one of a kind. I know the feeling I get when I find something that is so well-crafted but also beautiful and original. I am also inspired by my archaeological background from college - ancient jewelry is absolutely fantastic and amazing - but its a craft that has kept on going and progressing. It is something that just makes me feel good. I love selling my pieces myself because I can see peoples reactions when they find something that they love that I made. It is a great feeling.

until later...
