Podsters" has now become a necklace's pendant.
It's actually reversible because
I did the back in a good way.
Sandy Camp 2007. I have named this one "Brandy & Chocolate".
After demoing how to make my Butterfly Wing cane, I had
to make some beads, didn't I? :D I can't wait
to see what I'll *have* to make due to the next Sandy Camp.
the curls and waves remind me of waterfalls, so I'm calling
this pendant and cuff set "Victoria's Set".
I've not gotten religion. This is for a relative. But I
must admit I really do like it! I guess I'll always be
a sucker for faux ivory and brass pieces. I just may make
one for myself. :)
Cell Phone". That's what I call it, anyway, hee hee.
This appears heavy but it isn't because it was made over
an aluminum foil core.

last! I finally made something from those addictive swirly
lentils (aka "Torquies"). This is a graduated
size beaded necklace, with glass and silver spacers. It
is approximately 22" long.

like to introduce you to my first faux amber bead necklace.
It includes Bali silver and Indian silver beads, turquoise
and some kind of wood beads.
brass swivels! :D
Tears & Curls", composed of soldered sterling silver
wire armatures. My intent was to fill the armatures with
polymer clay to make this necklace match (somewhat) with
Spring's Energy" bracelet.
I still may do that, but I want to enjoy this open structure
for a little while.
finally, I made myself a chain long enough (27") for
a necklace. Then I attached a toggle clasp so I could add
one of my Butterfly Wing clay beads.
The chain pattern
is byzantine; 18ga 4mm ID SS rings.
tis the name because refurbished is its game. This pendant
went on one of those gastric bypass diets.
wasn't too happy with this one in it's past life (look
to the right) so I trimmed down. Now I like it a bit
familiar? This was "Spiral Madness"; or you might
consider this to be the pre-reburbished version of "Refurbished".
I kept it hidden
for a while, thinking maybe I'd grow to like it after
a while. But no dice. So I decided to play editor. Look

by Kathleen Dustin's class I took in Feb06. She guided
us through some marvelous layering, color, pattern and
"Nine". This pendant sat in a drawer for quite a
while. Why? Frankly, I don't really know. But it called to
me recently, to come out of the 'drawer'. :)
is the blue coloring was done using what was then called "Fiesta"
inks (aka Pinata). The color is still a brilliant and clear
as it was a year or so ago.
Pendant". This is my first woven wire and faux ivory
pendant, built on a brass wire frame. It's 4" tall
and 1.5" wide. The woven wire and embellishments work
are also brass.
pair of mokume gane style pendants, sporting the new Lumiere
Halo Pink Gold paints in the craters.
one I title "Spring Crazy". It reminds me of
those crazy quilt patterns and since there's so much green
and blue in this piece, it reminded me of spring.
This very large
necklace is composed of polymer clay, strange little
toothy beads and sead beads. Click on the image to see

It's large and
heavy enough, I'm giving serious consideration to counterweighting
Craters"; created using a simple polymer clay mokume
gane technique on a Skinner blended stack. It's strung
on duck decoy cording and embellished with black tube and
antiqued brass beads.
