I've been doing a lot of jewelry again lately. Here's some of the stuff I've gotten done:
Cupcake earrings (these are just post earrings):


Bracelet made from vintage dominoes:


And my favorite, a bracelet made from an old pie server:


Here's a view of it from the side so you can see the end of the server:


I love it! I made some other silverware stuff for my Mom's shop, but forgot to take pics of it before I left it there.  Roll Eyes I would ask her to take some and email me them, but it would be a nightmare to walk my non-tech savvy mother through it!  Cheesy

C & C always welcome!

I borrowed my dad's bender thingy. (I'm sure there's a technical term for it, but I don't know what it is!  Cheesy ) It's a hand crank tool that has two rollers that you can adjust the spacing between. I put the pie server in between and started cranking. It bends the object around the rollers as you crank. It took a lot of muscle, and my hubby had to help, but it was totally worth it!

**I just did some google searching and it's called a ring roller. Here's a link to a new one: http://www.shopoutfitters.com/Universal_Fabricator_files/Ring_Roller_PG/Ring_Roller_UF.html?gclid=CO-lsqrU4p0CFSXyDAodUj7IEA
The one my dad has is old with really long rollers.

Wow! They're amazing. Cheesy I love the last one I really want to try working with metals but there are also a million other things I want to try so I doubt it'll happen any time soon.
How are you? Did you have a good Halloween?

Hi Super_Ted! I didn't do too much for Halloween, sadly. I just handed out candy to the trick-or-treaters. It was fun to see the kids in costume. I just didn't have the time or effort to throw a costume party like I wanted. Oh well, there's always next year!
How have you been.
