A Circle With A Hole

Circle inspirations, joined hand in hand…a lovely aqua ceramic disc from Vladthebatsattic, a beach stone from the Florida coast, a cast pewter element, a lampworked bead, and a coin carry the theme.

More Metal Melding (I love alliteration)

Sooo….I have these random bits and pieces around my studio that have been taking up space and have not had a permanent home…until now. A random link from an old bracelet, an earring element given to me by a friend, stashes of foreign coins from places that I have been and have not been. Now that I’ve discovered that I can meld and marry them with pewter, they have a place to live.

Once again taking something that may look new and shiny and combining it with other elements, aging them with fire and stamping and sanding…giving them a new identity…like a witness protection program…or something like that. Nothing too fidgety or perfect. Texture, color, personality.  Forgive my rambling. :-)

Thanks to Brittney for the color suggestions on the bottom necklace. It turned out nice.

Fragments and Relics

I’m always drawn to old relics. When I was a kid, I always said I wanted to be an archaeologist or an artist. Now that I’m grown up, I’ve realized that I can be both if I want to. The dig that I participated in two years ago in Israel just whetted my appetite for ancient things. Living in the south, eastern U.S. there are small opportunities for finding ancient fragments, but I’ve been trying to create some of my own to mimic that look in my jewelry. Using some of my metal techniques that I learned in the Richard Salley workshop and a few things that I’ve been trying on my own, these are the pieces that I have come up with.

Pewter, copper, African trading beads, glass, wood, and stone were used in these newest creations. Not for everyone perhaps, but I’m sure there is someone out there who is as hooked on old things as I am.

Metal Melding


I’ve been experimenting with some new techniques of melding different types of metal together so that they are visually separate, but joined as if one piece. I’ve combined copper, brass, pewter, African trading beads, stone and glass beads, and wood to make these ethnic style necklaces. Once again…no bling for me.
