Leaves and Trailing Vines
August 5, 2008 § Leave a comment
I’ve hardly begun finishing my pieces already pictured and I have more I’m starting with. And such wonderful ideas!
On a whim I looked at Alchemy on Etsy (where some of our jewelry is available) and encountered someone who is looking for some of what I’m already making! Leaves and vines and flowers and feathers have been all I can think of these days. Perfect to find someone interested in just these things!
In very early stages of work, I am finding my way with Argentium Sterling Silver. It is much more tarnish-resistant than standard Sterling Silver and it fuses, much like Fine Silver.
The experiments are going well, if you don’t notice the unfinished pieces waiting to meet my files and polish. Photographs to come, and sketches as well. Truth be told, the sketches were thoughts, and I’ve not held too true to them. The work doesn’t suffer for it, though.
