Last week it was all about earrings. This week I'm making all of my already fired bits and pieces into necklaces. I've had some of them sitting on my bench for years! To get ready for my show June 11, 12 and 13 I'm turning every single fired thing I have into jewelry. That or sending it to Rio to become raw materials for some other jeweler (refining scrap).
These are just some of the necklaces I've been assembling. The reticulated box is from a metals class I took at Santa Monica College two years ago. After I'm done with the assemblages, I'm hoping to have still more time to make a few new pieces. Including a larger Specimen Container to be a wowzer in the middle of my table.
Isn't this photo by Drew Davidson great?
And speaking of Specimen Container's... did you see my tutorial on Tonya's blog? I think she did a great job with the synopsis. And if you'd like to learn how to make something like it in person, come out to The Beading Place in Tustin this weekend for a two day workshop! We're gonna have so much fun. I think there are 4 or 5 spots open - so make that call and come on down.
