Jewelry designs

Here is are two finished pairs of earrings and the start of a turquoise necklace. The pair to the right is weathered copper rings with blue-green and brownish lampwork drops added.  I bought the beads etc at One Stop Bead Shop in Dublin.  I also made my daughter a matching pair, but they are in Jamaica with her.
The second pair is sterling silver chains with mother of pearl drops. This actually was a rescued pair, I lost one of the earrings on a business trip, and so took the one that was left apart and made two.  I like the original pair better, but Coldwater Creek did not have them anymore and I didn't want to toss the one I had left. Finally this is a necklace that I am working on, with weathered copper chains and turquoise disks.  It will have dangling charms also, made of Swaroski, turquoise chips, charms etc.

On another note, I haven't been here yet, but found this brochure about a restored Frank Lloyd Wright home in Springfield, OH.  The Westcott House   This is definitely something I need to go tour.

Jewelry and Sunday

Today I spent the afternoon, since my homework assignments are not posted yet for the week, organizing my studio and creating some jewelry. Will post pictures soon!
