I think this last month has been so productive, what means productive? means I fill the orders from the shop, custom orders and make new work, which to me it’s the perfect balance, covering everything so there is a good flow of orders and new listings and I realized there is no updates of the work I’ve been doing over here
Let me see..
First I played a little bit with the idea of the yogis, I’ve been meaning to find the time to maybe make one of these but with several different poses instead of other charms.
Then came what it feel like a lifetime of sawing, for a bracelet needed for a wedding..
This was made with a jeweler’s saw, and a lot of patience, usually you can’t rush it because if you do just a slip of the blade can ruin the pattern you are trying to cut.and well you have to start again. and noooo, we don’t want that.
This is the final result, I had to make 2 of them in a row (someone on FB saw it and ordered one just like it), so It was time to make some more coffee and put the same playlist back on..and saw away
I think it would look pretty nice in silver as well..
Then as I was on a bracelet roll I made these two..using lapiz lazuli and larimar.
One night in April just before falling asleep (because between all the things I think before falling asleep jewelry is included) I thought of a ring that had a stone that kind of sat partially on top of your hand.. ermm I know it doesn’t make much sense, and when I jumped out of bed at like 1am like a zombie to find the stone and put it on my hand it didn’t either, but the next day, the wave rings were born:
Then the latest work I’ve done are pretty big rings, letting the stone do most the work and the detail focused in the band.
Then came the ammonite addiction , ammonites are the mineral form of a fossil shell of the Cretaceous period
that existed 70 to 135 million years ago
Still using the details in the bands, this one with little 14k gold pebbles..
That look like this when worn..
This morning I made the sketch for the matching pendant, I now want ammonite everything, to me to be able to handle something so old is wonderful.. sometimes we get used to the pretty materials included in jewelry making but if you think twice, it is really unique.
And so this is what I made in the last month, this plus several other smaller pieces..
I have also been struggling with photography a little bit,I think is important to have a constant image but I just can’t decide..been using black backgrounds, I ended up thinking I should go back to grey. What do you think?
And now I am off to get something sweet, summer is here and I keep finding excuses to go for some frozen yogurt!
I leave you with this beautiful,beautiful song.
