New Designs

Now that I have the time to do it, I've been focusing on my jewelry and creating new designs. I've also been challenging myself to work on some new techniques, pushing out the designs that I have and exploring certain themes. You'll see more bezel set work incorporating vintage cabachons - I've been so lucky to find some good ones (check out the two pieces below).

I've also been torturing myself with these miniscule glass flowers that my friend Jill Popowich gave to me. They have about a 50% mortality rate so far, but I'm hoping to improve. For those interested in these pieces, they should wear well and not be fragile - as long as you aren't hammering on them like I do.
