Latest Creations - Labradorite Necklace & More

Once again I have been creating. Last night and this morning I have been working on this labradorite and sterling silver necklace. It's not quite done yet but it's close. I am having a hard time deciding whether to antique the silver or not.


It's similar to the ornate Eni-style pendants I've done several of in the past (here - scroll down a bit and you'll see them), but I usually mix the coiled wire with beads for a wilder, unplanned look, whereas with this piece I've used only the coiled wire for the bezel, which I think gives it a more formal feel.

I also put this fun, summery bracelet together last night for a custom order. This one is spoken for but if you like it, I'm sure I could make another one similar to this!

Thanks for the link to my blog on Nina Planck's ridiculous op-ed....I'm trying to release that anger now, must go bake or run or do yoga, something that makes me happy!
