Spring Fling!

Well, its almost time for the Spring Fling show this weekend. Its on Saturday at the Will Rogers Auditorium. Should be great! I'm really looking forward and all my stock will be priced to sell.... Gotta move the merchandise. I'll be concentrating in Metal Clay designs mostly from now on. I'll still be doing some wire wrap as I like doing that but I really want to improve my Metal Clay designs. Wish me luck!

New Items Listed in Etsy

I've been busy listing items the past couple of days and I wanted to share some of them with you. I have been working a lot with copper as well as some of the vintage beads I got from England this fall. The beads in the two pictures are vintage plastic beads. The earrings are copper wire coiled into shape and then hammer finished. Then I use Liver of Sulfur for the patina.

The orange ones look beautiful with the copper rings. The rings are soldered and hammer finished and patina applied with Liver of Sulfur.

These are a pair of bracelets and matching earrings made from vintage plastic beads. The solid light blue beads almost look like cat's eye beads and the striped ones have a striking dot in the center almost like an eye. The bracelets are about 7" and are on stretch cord for easy wearing. The ear wires are sterling silver.

I'll be posting more items as I get them finished, photographed and listed. Stay tuned!
