New Jewelry!


I've had quite a productive week so far! Three new pieces for you:

First, one of my favorite stones ever, Tiffany stone (also known as Bertrandite), simply set in rusticated sterling silver:

I knew as soon as I got this stone that I would set it like this. The stone speaks for itself.

And this one came from an idea I tried to execute way back in March, but I was so new to smithing that I made a million and one mistakes and despite my attempts to make something of it (all the way up until late this summer!), I finally decided to scrap it. Here's the same idea in it's new (and properly executed) form:

Yellow jasper and sterling. Sits pleasingly and comfortably asymetrically:

And finally, a necklace similar to the custom order I completed a couple of weeks ago:

Resin (I did not make the resin cabachon), amethyst, turquoise and sterling

Hoping to get these in the shop a little later tonight (gotta get the kiddies in bed first!). Oh! And if you haven't already, join my email list (link to the form in the sidebar on the right) because I'm going to be sending out a discount code to email list members in the very near future.

PS. I know I missed list it Tuesday. Next week!

PPS. It's almost Friday! :)

PPPS. A note about pricing: the price of silver has almost doubled since I bought my first piece of silver sheet less than 1 year ago. The prices of handmade sterling silver jewelry items may seem like a lot (especially if you're not used to buying handmade), but I use expensive, quality materials and each piece takes many hours to complete. I use a formula based on the cost of the materials and the time put into the piece to arrive at a price. Feel free to send me a note if you have any questions about prices (or anything else!).
