Well, happy Friday everyone!
Here are some pics of my latest creations....hope you enjoy!
This is a pendant that I made from Silver clay and silver bezel wire...it was a lot of fun! But of course it lead to other things and now I think I am officially hooked!
Have you ever noticed that you start out trying one thing which leads to another path?
I started out with polymer clay, which I then set in silver plate which lead me to an interest in silver clay. This has led me into silver metalsmithing and now I am even playing around with copper and bronze. Which wouldn't be a problem if you could use the same tool set for everything. So now I am starting lists of tools that I need to pick up eventually, and this list just keeps getting longer everyday! One tool comes in, I play with it and then I realize I need another tool...you know the drill! But slowly I am accumulating a nice set of stuff! Just hope my kids realize this when I am gone! LOL!
Even though I keep picking things up here and there my list keeps growing. So now all my friends and family know that for gifts...all I need are gift certificates to my fave metalsmithing shops! Hint Hint!
Anyways....I think eventually I will have everything I need......yeah right! :)
But now I am interested in what everyone else has in their toolkit....let me know what your faves are!
Lastly here is a pic of a pair of silver hoop earrings I finished yesterday!
