New Piece – Old Techniques

I love making art jewelry and my website displays a lot of different approaches from beads to wire.  This elegant necklace reflects the years I spent involved in Middle East Dance as a creator and vendor of costumes and jewelry. 

I love collars and similar designs and a number of my necklaces are variations on that theme, like this one with ruby Swarovski crystals and a lab ruby set in sterling silver. 

I’m also interested in polishing some of my skills from several years back and that’s what I’ve been doing this year.  Earlier I posted a photo of a heart pendant featuring texture and patina and set with a rhodonite cabochon.   

As an example of what else I’m working on, here’s a photo of  a pendant in sterling silver set with two larimar cabochons.
