I've lived up to my promise to myself to seriously work on some jewelry this weekend. I took a break from the earrings and made these 4 great pendants that I plan on listing on etsy in the near future. From left to right they are Larimar, Rhodonite, Rutilated Quartz and Labradorite.
My shipment of wire came in yesterday and I picked up a couple of different things. One of the things was some 14k gold filled patterned wire so I can make some hoop earrings out of them. I'm not a big fan of gold but this wire is really quite beautiful. It will make gorgeous earrings. I also got some just plain rectangle sterling silver wire. I played with it some on the rhodonite piece so that pendant has more of a wrapped bezel. It takes a lot more to work with it then just the regular square wire but I have lots of ideas to use with it.
It should be a lazy day for us today. No 4th of July plans, just going to grill up some hotdogs and enjoy the weekend. Hope everyone has a safe and relaxing 4th.
Get thee to an independent bookstore.
