Can’t Seem To Get Out Of The Studio (Don’t Want To…)

November is starting to pass by quickly.  Suddenly we’re over a week in.
The Holidays are approaching and so are all sorts of new ideas.

 

For the first time since metalworking class so many years ago, I’m trying enamels again.  This time on fine silver.  And, I’m loving it!

Fun stuff: enamel on fine silver

 

And then… I started building cages.  I can’t decide if I like them better empty or…

Empty cages...

…filled with pearls…

Caged Pearls

…or crystals.

Caged Crystals

It’s a good day to be in the studio!

Rings, Rings, and More Rings!

This year for McLean County Arts Center’s annual Holiday Treasures which kicks off Friday, November 11, 2011, I’ve added an array of fused and coiled fine silver rings; some with added patina, some hammered, some au natural!    Prices range from $20 ~ $35 for these “feel good” weighted rings.

How many rings can you wear at one time?
