Well, actually, she probably can't, but she does make some awesome jewelry! She has always been amazed by vintage filigree artists so she decided to have a go at it. I was at her house this past Saturday and she let me play too! She uses brass findings, glass beads, anything really!
Mom's super cool green charm bracelet made with green glass beads and random brass charms:
Mom's sparrow and star necklace again using glass beads and brass findings:
My fancy fire opal necklace. This was my first try at filigree type jewelry!
And my favorite. I used an old lock and glued a stone to it, took a small glass vial and filled it with seed beads and glued it shut. I hung it from a gunmetal chain.
