With some room-to-move in the new space, I have begun pulling out boxes of work in progress and reviewing old pieces.
These 3 necklaces are from an old series called 'Indian Summer' I started several decades ago...
I go around in circles at times, spiraling into progress, and revisit often past designs to add, subtract and give them new life.
Check out statement necklaces to explore...
Early this summer Donut + Bars Necklace finally met its human, a match meant to be.
Many had come around over the years, tempting this unique necklace and pulling this way and that, hoping it would want to go home with them.
But Donut + Bars was never quite sure and passed on everyone.
That is, until this summer, when C. came by... it was love at first sight!
It was just 2 of them at the beginning, hollow forms and fabrications in sterling silver, copper and touches of 18k gold, on a long sterling silver chain, long enough to allow play and various combinations...
So now, Cone + Bars Necklace is lonely.
This one too passed on many a good offer and a lot of 'oohs and ahhs' from interesting prospects, but it is the first of the two and always been a bit stubborn.
I am for that special one, it says, wrapping around my fingers...
All my pins in one place!
Just added a new pin style to my ever popular twisted&wires collection: the Arc pin comes in 2 sizes, 3 metals and 5 different finishes. You can choose from the short or long style and suddenly you have a smile on you! And if you sometime want to show a less happy day than usual (sigh!)... well, you just turn the pin until things get better!
Here is how you could also wear the coil pin, a simple statement pin for a special occasion, or better, for an every day statement: on you hat!
Happy late summer!
jewelry notes from the bench
Hi, welcome to my jewelry blog!
I make simple, colorful and bold jewelry for a contemporary ageless and fun style.
Have been doing this for quite sometime...pretty sure this is what I want to do when I grow up!
Here I jot down thoughts and notes and pictures of work in the making, both in my mind, on paper and on the bench.
for bench updates and exclusive previews...
