I have a show coming up the first weekend in November at the Contemporary Crafts Market in Santa Monica California and I need to replenish my stock. At the same time I'm trying to market my classes and work on projects for the Master's Registry to say nothing of fitting in some time for playing with the new kittens. That's a very important task you know. ;- )
They sit on my feet as I work. Sweet.
And since I have so many components laying around waiting to be transformed into lovely treasures, I've decided that whatever else I do in a day - I must make at least one finished piece of jewelry. That means I'll have at least 30 new things to put on my table (allowing for a day off here and there).
Curio Necklace #3
This piece is made of a reproduction of a vintage Maltese Cross I found at the swap years ago, a little fine silver corno that I formed with the tail end of a package of clay and a small, red rock (which I drilled) that a dear student of mine brought back from a trip to Australia. The chain was attached with a watery blue Kyanite. I still haven't decided whether to patina it or not. What do you think?
