Check out this bead I made:

It was fun, you made the bead, then after it came out of the kiln, you worked it on the
Lapidary Wheel !

Thanks to my great teacher, Heather for all her ideas and help :)

Fall is coming :)

The weather is finally starting to cool down in the mornings and at night !! Yay !!

This is a big deal here in Phoenix !!

I'm decorating for Fall right now, even though it's still 100 during the day !

This guy is one of my favorites,
I just change out the flowers in his basket for every season :)

Did I mention I luv trolls ;p

New designs

Working on some new designs.  I really like the rustic/organic look.  It's challenging to just hammer and hammer the copper into something that resembles a piece of wood.  I think the Woolywire is a nice earthy accent to this piece.

Copper and Stones

Larimar is such a beautiful stone.  It has a real beachy watery feel to it...


I needed to add a chunk of it to my Copper pieces, so here it is:



I love the sea :)

You can find my Copper Larimar piece in my Etsy store here:

Feels like Springtime here in Arizona so I made a few Spring colored earrings :)
 The earrings are made from lil' copper flower petals that I've enameled.

Dagger Necklaces

It looks like a lot of Quartz and other stones are being shaped into daggers now, which is pretty cool :)

So, of course I had to get some to play with, here's some Necklace designs I've put in my Etsy shop:

Here's one with some really nice Green Kyanite Daggers with Quartz Daggers and some freshwater stick pearls


This one has some Quarz Daggers that have been heat-treated to change the color and what a nice color it is !!!  It's a chocolate brownish bronze color, just beautiful :)


Here's another Quartz Dagger that has been heat-treated to this gorgeous blue/purple color.  I've added some small purple beads to highlight the purple in the Quartz.


This one has that same beautiful Green Kyanite Daggers as well as Quartz Daggers and some really nice Sea Urchin Spines !!  I've strung this one with a creamy white soft leather :)


You can find all my Dagger Necklaces in my Etsy shop here:
