The last of my silver – for now… :)

Jewellery, Pendants

I’m sharing the latest of my pendants and experiments with transparent enamels on sterling silver. The first two I’m pleased with – they both developed partly because of those happy accidents that sometimes pop up, frustrate but ultimately provide a surprising satisfaction. The third one however was a surprise that I’m not happy with! So I’m going to re-fire it and give it a new lease of life. It’s funny how as a perfectionist I can only focus on the work i’m happy with for so long before I re-focus on my ‘failure’. Which is why I’m going for the before and after effect in an effort to give myself a break! 🙂 I’ll post the ‘after’ photo in a few days… Enjoy your weekend 🙂

I’ve included here a selection of my experiments and learning experiences! Some are successful and have given life to new ideas, others I didn’t like so much and I just put down to experience.

The above pendant is for sale in my Etsy shop for £6.00 plus postage and shipping.

The above picture was one of my success stories… I’m developing a new range of jewellery based on using felt and wool (and possibly other media) in my work.

The long etched copper pendant was the precurser to my etched copper pendants.

Experiments with transparent enamels on sterling silver…

Uncategorized

A selection of basic pendants I made with the main purpose of testing my new transparent enamels. They’ve proved very popular so far though!

All are vitreous enamel on sterling silver with leather cord and silver plated clasp. Length of cord is designed to be worn as a choker, but would be just as attractive on a longer necklace.

There will be more to follow folks… watch this space!
