A few months worth of jewelry project
These (necklace and bracelet) are made with 5mm czech glass beads in black and silver plated beads and a few spacers made by Tierracast. All the metal is silver. I got to practice my pearl knotting. It's a pain, but I like the end result a lot! Of course, on my first project, I discovered that the holes in the silver beads were too big, so my knots just slipped through. The spacers took care of the problem , though. I don't have a picture of the matching earrings for some reason?
This necklace and matching bracelet are made with peridot chips and silver spacers and beads. It ended up longer than I expected (about 22 inches) so it hangs lower than I'd like, but I like how it ended up. This one also has matching earrings not shown here because I couldn't find my wire cutters and haven't finished them yet.
I joined a rock club last year and they've taught me how to grind cabs. These are a LOT of fun to make. From slab to cab, it usually takes about 4 hours. I can't remember what kind of rock this is, though. I'll have to look it up.
This one is Montana Agate. These are both set in silver plated cabochon settings and have a silver bail. They are 20mm by 16mm, if I remember correctly.
