So, since my partner has not posted pics (or even acknowledged receiving) I thought I'd post pics.

First, just let me say that this took me about 15 hours to make.  Everything is made by hand, even the chain, and the whole thing started out as sterling silver sheet and wire.  I am rather proud of the way it came out.  I've been learning all about metalsmithing and in this project I used pretty much all of the skills I've learned this semester. (oh, and Dangles & Baubles is my jewelry company, fyi Smiley )

On to the pics!

The whole project:



Closeup of the birds and the clasp - the necklace does not have a traditional clasp, instead the chain hooks into the curved end of the branch:



Closeup of the earrings:

So, what do you think?

**gallery stalking**

spotnik, those pieces are wonderful! I love how you did the necklace with the branch and off-centered birdy. The matching earrings are equally fabulous!

wow--that is some of the nicest metal work jewelry I have seen!

drooling over the gorgeous scarf that tanquiel made as well...

everything in this gallery is superb--and unique--that planter is very very unique!

nothing like a stripey sweater for a baby--required clothing, for sure and so nicely done!

I've never seen anything like that book planter - what a great piece!  The star blanket is so sweet - beautiful work!  Spotnik - I think you did an amazing job on the earrings and necklace - of course I would LOVE something like that - lol!  I will be surprised if you don't get a great big thank you from your partner - she must be stunned by your talent!  Wink
