Something new

So I’ve been wrapping a couple of pendants for the past couple of weeks and I have been wanting to make something in line with an amulet. Something different. So with a little weaving and then a little more weaving I have come up with these new two. The first has 2 tourmalines and a Mexican fire opal, the second has a faceted red garnet and blue green piece of apatite.


I am once again addicted to wrapping. Seems like I can’t stop for awhile then I take a break then back to being addicted. Crazy stuff.
Well thanks for stopping by! Hope you get to enjoy the the three day weekend. I know I am. 🙂

A Berrendo Agate piece

This is a piece that I made for the contest on the Taogem forum. I made a few pieces and decided on this one. I will post pictures of all the pieces at the end. It was hard to decide which piece to enter. The pieces that had the most votes from family and friends were the Velvet obsidian and the Berrendo agate. The Mexican fire opal kept being chosen as the one everyone wanted tho. Confusing me even more. So I went with the original piece I had in mind to enter. Besides I had taken more photos of the that one while I was making it.
Here are pictures of most of the process.


It had been awhile since I put a piece together with solder instead of wire. It was fun tho and I just might make a few more.

Almost no wire weekend

This weekend was a great cabbing and smithing weekend.  I’m thinking on making a couple of pieces for the contest so that I can hopefully pick the best to enter.  I have started the 1st one and have been cabbing so I can start the 2nd.  I’m really liking how this one is turning out so far.  I’m not sure if posting pics is ok as far as the contest goes, so I’m gonna post the sketch and the pics of the cabs.  The sketch is a rough one, just fyi. 🙂 In this piece I’m using the Berendo agate cab from the last post. The only wire was  a wrap I finished for a friend.  Made out of turquoise, coral and a sapphire.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you had a great weekend!

Tourmalines

These pendants have taken me for quite a ride. But they’re finally done.  My daughter called the first one head over heels. Maybe you can see why… the second one is just plain crazy.

Thanks for coming by have a wonderful week!

Finally a new wrap

Well I have finally finished a wrap.  I’ve been taking it sorta easy for a few days, due to my lil accident.   Its been ok tho, just a little recharging.  This is a piece that you will notice in a prior post that just wasn’t finished. The flower is from outside of my house just like the others.

Thanks for coming by!!
