My treasure trove

Thought I’d show you my treasure trove, I started these sterling silver pendants, and other pieces a while back but they were sitting unfinished, I had no idea how much treasure was lurking in the unfinished pot on my bench. Now they are ready for hallmarking, then finishing off by setting the stones in the bezels and a final polish.

If you follow my blog you will know that I have been making glass and ceramic beads for a while now, as well as some metal clay pieces like pendants, connectors and charms. The plan is to put these components together and make a unique piece of art jewellery entirely handmade from raw materials by me. Like a painting these necklaces will hopefully) speak in my voice.

As you can see with these groupings, and the addition of semi precious beads, that there is potential for some lovely happenings, I will show you the finished necklaces once made up. I’m waiting for copper wire to arrive.

I’ve just had another flash of inspiration looking out the window at the berries on the cotoneaster, I want to go and make red glass berries and copper leaves, but that will have to wait as I have my first craft fair of the season next weekend and I need to prepare.
