New Oxidized Pendant
This is the pendant I just completed. It is 1 1/2" x 3 1/2", sterling silver, 18K gold and it contains piece of shell which is bezel set. I have oxidized the pendant and chain. I have mixed feelings about blackened silver. If I show this piece, I will need to create companions. It cannot be the only one like it. What do you think? Would you buy something with this look? Would you wear it?

Patty's Bead

This piece was fun to do. My friend Lou wanted a gift for his wife. He envisioned some sort of pendant or large bead with a Ginkgo Leaf and a Japanese Maple Leaf on it. Perhaps one on each side. These leaves are both part of Patty's imagery in her clothing design. So, I got to work.

I had to find images to work from... should I etch these leaves? I tried many variations. I created many proto-types. Perhaps, they will be the seed of a new series!

First, I created two halves of the bead. I assumed that I would just solder the parts together. Then, I thought about it opening...what's inside? How will it close? The bail, hinge and latch were resolved.This is the finished piece. Both Lou and Patty were thrilled. Lou took the photographs for me.

Thanks, Lou!!!!
