Keeping busy..

So i made the Shark Tooth custom necklace this morning... It's 3 shark teeth wire wrapped in Silver alloy, with glass beads and shells, on a Sterling Silver plated chain. Not bad for $15 including shipping and handling...

The Grandmother Birthstone heart necklace person still hasn't paid me or responded. She didn't have any feedback yet. I should have gotten payment up front... I have to be more patient though.

I finished the custom Tree sculpture yesterday and boy is it monumental!
Still have to write about it....
beyond the stones that are labeled, the leaves are Czech glass leaf beads, Peridot gemstone, Malachite, Serpentine Jade, Turquoise, Tiger's Eye, and more. She is getting a heck of a deal at $50 but I enjoyed making it... Lots of different stones...Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Peruvian Blue Opal, Topaz, Citrine, Garnet, Sapphire, and more. Yep, all genuine gemstones.

I also made a metalsmithing piece today:

"One of a kind copper necklace created by art student .. Square pendant

This one of a kind piece was started a couple years ago in a Metalsmithing class. . The Copper Square has been fired by a torch, creating a bubble and other lunar-landscape textures on one side. The other side has been painstakingly textured with a planishing hammer and other implements. Now I finally completed it, 2 years later. It has been attached on opposite c
orners to a vintage unused copper chain, 30 inches long, that hangs to about the bust, easily slipping over the head with no annoying clasps to mess about with. You choose which side of the square to wear outwards..they both look completely different!"

All I sold today was a bracelet - a multicolored, multi stone bracelet on a stretchy cord. Very colorful
