I found this very interesting (and substantial) vintage Sterling cuff bracelet online. I was a bit disappointed when I received it. Although it wasn’t terribly expensive, considering the solid Sterling is 5.75 inches long and over an inch wide, I didn’t care for the color of the stone and noticed the setting was incorrectly soldered and crooked!
So thanks to my trusty bench grinder and favorite ball-peen hammer, I was able to transform and create a distinct new piece. A touch more polishing and it’s good to go!!

What a wonderful weekend at both Glen Park Art Festival and A Taste of Clarence/Cruise Night!
I am exhausted (but in the best sense!) and excited to work on new ideas for jewelry and pottery to roll out for end of the summer and fall events!
Have to thank so many for making these past 3 days so memorable- could not have survived these busy shows without my amazing daughter Vicki, and my very generous helpers Elizabeth and Carol!
The dedicated event volunteers deserve special recognition and, of course, we artisans would not exist without the many faithful patrons and visitors.
Times like these remind me why I chose my business name- because I am truly Over the Buffalo Moon….
Getting ready for a wonderful weekend at Glen Park Art Festival on Saturday and Sunday July 30 & 31 and A Taste of Clarence on Monday August 1.
Busy making many new fused glass jewelry pieces for both shows!
Also lots of new raku pottery pieces for Clarence including these horse hair pots and leaves…
