Cyber Monday Sale!

I really wanted to see how the Cyber Monday Sales are going to go, so I put a few special items in my sale section in my etsy store. If you want to see them, go to my sale section. Free international shipping until Midnight on Monday too.

I've stocked up at Blue Moon Gift Shops and Port City Pottery, so you can always find my work there as well!

Labradorite Flowering Pendant

I had fun working on the final collections for the Etsy Metal version of Project Runway. This is just one of the four pieces that I did for the collection. The flash of the labradorite is really bright in this cabochon that Hans cut. He is really getting the hang of cutting this stone in a way so that he doesn't lose the flash. It was a deep set stone and I wanted to show as much of it as possible, so I did a bezel with prongs. This way lots of light will still come in the stone.

Well today I'm busy getting ready for one of my favorite Wilmington shows, Art for the Masses by Creative Wilmington. All art work is between $25-$250 and there will be over 200 local and regional artists there. I hope that you will come out to see me on Saturday, November 21 in the brand new Bank of America building at 319 North Third Street in downtown Wilmington. I'll have my newest work with me at this show. If you want the first pick, come at 8:00 am and pay $10 to get in early! The show opens to the general public at 9am and ends at 4pm with a suggested donation of $3.

See you there!!!

My Getty Inspiration Piece

Our final Etsymetal Jewelry Challenge was to take piece from the Getty for our basis of inspiration for our final challenge. I picked this heavy gold Roman band from A.D. 300-400. I was thrilled to set so many stones. It was fun, but a lot of work too. I estimate that it took over 30 hours to fabricate the piece.
