1  spoon rings! yay! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by metalsmitten on: July 03, 2011 04:12:56 PM
I like to make rings outta old spoons Smiley These are solid silver spoons, so I'm able to solder things on them, like stone settings.

These are my most recent ones, but I've made quite a few now hehe.

with Moonstone

black onyx

2  Branching out with my own site in Get Product and Website Opinions by metalsmitten on: November 01, 2010 04:04:48 PM

So I've been using Etsy for years and have been pretty happy overall, but I finally decided to branch out and make my own site for my one product line that I make. Smiley I went with bigcartel.com's shopping cart service, 'cos it seemed easiest. I've expanded the line quite a bit just for this site, I hired a designer to take care of the CSS and graphics, and I just launched it two days ago. I'm hoping to have some volunteer guinea pigs take a peek at it and let me know any constructive criticism you may have to help make it better? It's not quite ready for a grand opening yet, I'm missing a few products and product photos, and I really wanted to see if I could get another model to add some variety to the imagery hehe (my poor roommate modeled for every single picture) but otherwise I think it's almost ready to go. Anybody wanna do me a huge favor, take a peek and let me know what you think? Smiley Thanks in advance!

3  pink & black in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by metalsmitten on: July 21, 2010 04:16:10 PM
Is the color combination of pink & black still in style? 'Cos I still love it Tongue

I finished this yesterday!

& Thanks to those of you who advised me a few days back to make this ring with the vertical orientation, I had been leaning towards making it horizontal but I really like how it turned out this way Smiley

4  Can I ask your opinion? :) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by metalsmitten on: July 19, 2010 07:10:29 PM
Hey guys, I'm trying to decide if I should make this ring design be horizontal or vertical... which do you like better? Sorry for quickie snapshot photos!


& It's going to have these set in it:

In the design drawing, the two circles will be the pink stones, the long oval is the black stone, and the little gray dots are going to be silver balls.

I just can't decide if I like it better horizontally or vertically =/

6  Ring Makin' Fool in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by metalsmitten on: July 15, 2010 07:20:33 PM
Rings are by far my favorite things to make. These ones are all pretty simple, but I made 4 completed rings in a day and that's above average for me hehe. I only got to take photos of 3 though before Nature was like, hey, thunderstorm, and took away my photography studio (read: the outside). So I'll post the last one whenever it is that the sun comes back and the ground isn't all gross. Teaser: it has a dark labradorite! Yay!

But anyway, here's the three:

Better Than Bella's Moonstone Ring Tongue

Ultra Modern Little Black Dot Ring, with black onyx. It's hard to tell what the shape of the ring band is in the little picture, but it's triangular and awesome. Also way more comfortable than it looks.

Candy Lozenge Ring, with high-end gem-quality rhodochrosite. Nom nom nom!

Thanks for lookin Smiley

I'm a silversmith. I try to be all artisan-craftsmanshippy want-to-be-an-artist-when-I-grow-uppy, but sometimes my inner geek just forcibly takes over and then things like this happen instead. <3 !

Unisex <3 Ring

8  Upcycled Spoon Jewelry! Yay! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by metalsmitten on: July 11, 2010 06:11:55 PM
I've been using a lot of old spoons recently to make rings and pendants! I like to use the old spoons 'cos it's recycling an old piece of metal that nobody wants anymore, and making a whole new piece out of it that doesn't require mining any more metal out of the ground. I'm out of spoons now though, and that makes me sad. But here's a few of the things I've made Smiley

Thanks for looking Smiley
