Rhodolite Garnets with 24k Gold in Sterling Silver Brooch

This piece came together in an effort to use some odd shapes that I had left over from other designs. I have made pieces before that were feminine clothing so it was a natural to do another vest! I seem to like making those best! Two mirror sterling pieces connected with textured sterling wire that has 24k Gold bonded using the primitive Asian technique of keum boo. Two rhodolite garnets accent each side. The pin is held in place with swirls at the vest top. This was made in a class I taught and we all had so much fun creating our pieces! By Lisa.

Heat Patina Copper and Turquoise Dangle Earrings

Playing with fire is a favorite thing of mine to do and heating copper to bring out rich colors is so, so awesome! Ok, details. The triangles at the bottom are about 1" at the widest part. They are slightly domed to give dimension. The top disc is about a half inch in diameter and are also slightly domed. The copper pieces are lightly textured along the edges and have been protected so as to keep the wonderful patina. A 3mm turquoise bead of outstanding color is wire wrapped to connect the copper pieces. Handmade Sterling ear wires add the finishing touch. By Lisa.

Silver Woven Puff Heart Necklace

I do not own a hydraulic press so this puff heart was achieved using acrylic as the form. It's a fun process and could be done with any material that you can cut or carve a shape into. The silver was put through a rolling mill first to impress the lovely texture. It was then formed and cut. Sterling wire was then shaped around the heart and they were woven together with more Sterling wire. Riveted bail holds the pendant to the chain and a tassel swings freely below the heart. Approximately 19 inches long. Sterling heart lobster claw secures it around your neck. By Lisa.

Flower Bell Earrings in Bronze & Sterling

It is almost back to nature for spring time! At least in Texas.....

Simple and pretty little bronze bells hang from hammered sterling silver loops in these handmade earrings. Bell flowers are made from bronze clay and crafted by Alone Star Jewelry. Sterling silver wire is hammered 'round the loop except where the flower hangs. Sterling ear wires on top.

A perfect springtime pair of earrings with a natural look! Inspired by lily of the valley flowers that come early in springtime in my back yard, don't they also look like tulips..?..

Photos show dimensions; the loop measures approximately 1.13" and the earring's total length top to bottom is about 1.88". Little bell flower has a nice thickness to it, but is not heavy at all because it is hollow.

Thanks for looking!

Collar Tip Earrings

These were my Dad's collar tips and I love them! I wanted to be able to wear them so it made perfect sense to make them into earrings. These turquoise cabs were set with sawdust beneath them, which is how it used to be done as a matter of course. I removed the stone, used a different material to raise the stone and re-set it. I also tightened up the rest, although they weren't rattling like that one stone was. Anyway, I'm proud to wear them. Our Dad was a silversmith, too, along with so many other artistic talents! Sure do miss him! ❤️

Fine Silver Starfish on Sterling Rolo Chain

I love the beach and anything remotely related to it! This is a handmade starfish that I made from metal clay, so it is 99.9% pure silver. The starfish is 2.5mm thick and 5/8" tall, not including the bail, which is 9mm tall. 

The beautiful chain is a tiny rolo and it's doubled. I love this chain in beach pieces because it looks like the little bubbles that wash up on the shore. The Sterling chain is 17" long and has a Sterling lobster clasp. By Lisa.
