Carrie, Very Pretty!! I have always like black & pink together.....gives me a poodle skirt feeling! When times were simple and fun! (maybe because I was young and didn't have a care).

Carrie, very pretty bracelet! You have a generous bead buddy to send you that stone!

So, I'm going to hog the thread for a bit, hope no one minds (sorry to those on dialup!)

First is a pair of amber cuff links I made to sell at the gallerthat carries my work.

This is a custom ordered pair of opal cufflinks - a lady lawyer wanted these made. She had looked at a pair I had at the gallery (I think I showed those a while back) but wanted something a bit more substantial - hope she likes these!


This is a fire opal ring that I made as a sample to show my students the ring making process. The only stone I had on hand that day was this little fire opal - good thing orange is a hot color these days! :)

I love this one! It's a simple ring band with a checkerboard cut smokey quartz set in a 14k bezel. It was a custom order, hope she likes it as much as I do!


Here's a side view of the smokey quartz ring


This is another custom order, mystic topaz with 14k bezel (not my fav and a crappy pic to boot! LOL)

This is another sample ring I made with rutilated quartz.

BAck to your regularly scheduled S&T! Can't wait to see everyone else's goodies! :)

barrie....gorgeous! i also can't pick a fave..(although leaning towards the orange - it's my favorite color!) you did wonderful work! that pattern on those blue cufflinks is cool!

cc...great!! i especially like the bottom necklace...lots going on there!

Carrie, Fun combo of color! I love pink and black together also.

Barrie, You work such magic with a bit of metal and stones!

CC, What fun you are having playing with form. The earrings look so weathered and cool. I'm with Carrie. Love the bottom necklace.

03-28-2007, 05:54 PM
oh Barrie, I can't pick a favorite at all either - but if your custom client doesn't like that ring I'll take it in a heart beat!!! Love!

CC, I can pick a fav of yours though - I like the last necklac the best - I like that round pully looking thing so much!

Carrie - I like yours too but I think I'd like it even better if there were spacers next to the pink stone.... those shapes sitting right next to each other are kinda bugging me... but maybe it's better on the wrist.

Those rings are fantastic - I would love to learn how to do that someday :D.

Gorgeous bracelet as well, love pink and black.

pam..i tried that too!! for such a few stones, it was about 10 different patterns before i finally settled on this one...the other spacers by the pink just didn't do it for me....

ah well, the beauty of knowing how to make jewelry is that if you don't like it, you can always re-do it!

Oh I like that brown quartz ring. I finally decided to show some of my stuff, please be kind.
Thanks Roe:o

Thanks for all the kind words everyone! Guess you can tell that rings are my bread and butter pieces, huh??

CC, I like the last necklace best two, but the other pieces are very cool.

Roe, I love the earrings best - I love long earrings!! The necklace is very cool as well.
