I used to own a gun, a 38 special. For the longest time I couldn't figure out what was so "special" about it. Five years after having disposed of the gun and ammunition at my local police station, I'm finally figuring out the "special"!
Vintage silk sari fabric, hand etched and stamped glass, brass stampings, 357 Magnum empty (thank goodness!) bullet casings, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls. This is my second bullet casing piece, the first was snatched up by a buyer before I could even take the photo!
Angel's wings earrings, brass stamping with a verdigris finish, sterling silver, freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals. (SOLD)
Silver and copper plated bezels, each with miniature artworks that are encased in a crystal two-part Ice Resin. Each bezel hangs from a 34" long, hand dyed silk ribbon. Both ends of each silk ribbon are also enhanced with Swarovski crystal, freshwater pearls, and sterling silver or copper dangles. When you tie the silk ribbon around your neck, the bow or knot you make in the back is as beautiful as the charm in front!
Below are a few new wrap-around bracelets I've just completed:
My first hand forged Pod Pendant received such rave reviews I decided to "do a re-do", of course in different shape and stones...
Sterling silver, hand forged copper with a fire patina, South African re-cycled glass, brass, African Dogan beads from the 1800's. SOLD
