I doubt that this was what Sarah Palin had in mind, but hey, it works for me. I went to town with my Foredom a while ago and created a pendant that was originally supposed to be part of my Buckshot series. I love the decayed, broken-down look of all these holes. I never did much with the pendant, so I decided to add to it, make use of some leftover brass tubing, and play around with some rivets. I plan to make some more pieces like this and should have the results posted in my shop soon.

I’m playing around with some new techniques and ideas and seeing what will come of them. I want to add more rings and bracelets to my store (getting a bit earring-heavy, ya know?), so I’m seeing what I can do with copper discs and silver grains. Something like this work-in-progress will be available soon in my shop.
In other news, the treasury of the day (or two or three days, depending) is called ‘Firecracker COLLIDEoscope’. Take a here to see an explosion of colors!!
I’m just now getting my new drill set up and getting started with it. Unfortunately, I can’t create a permanent set-up for it because of how tiny my apartment is and how crazy my cat is. There’s no place that I can keep a ridiculously heavy motor hanging up where it wouldn’t become a hazard to everyone.
These fun little discs are one of my first experiments, and I’m not sure how they’ll turn out. I think I’ll keep this pair for myself and refine the pattern – and my technique – a bit.
This pair of earrings is one of the first in my Elemental series, which I’ll be rolling out in my shop over the next little while. I’m having fun playing with silver and brass combinations, and I really like the little bit of pink that remains just under the surface of the brass discs on this pair. These are made with fairly substantial pieces of metal, but they are much more lightweight than they look.
