What’s old is new again!

For awhile now I have been collecting vintage Sterling jewelry pieces to re-purpose into new designs. Pins and earrings become rings or pendants. Some need a bit of work -grinding off the old broken pin from a brooch or removing the screw back earring findings and smoothing the back. Sometimes I add my handmade fused glass to the new piece just for a bit of sparkle.  And everything gets a bath!!

Experimenting with new techniques!

My first scheduled show is in March so I am taking this time to design new jewelry and try out a few interesting techniques. Since I have been working with Sterling flatware in some of my designs, I have a bit of silver left over to play with.

I decided to try a version of reticulation, the process of creating a textured surface using a torch to bring the metals to a high temperature. 

Here are some of my first attempts!

Stay tuned for my upcoming spring and early summer show schedule!
