Please take a look at my recent jewelry creations. I hope you like them!
Icicle Earrings are one of my favorite designs. I have worn the original pair for about a year. This can be embarrassing since as a jewelry artist, one would expect that I own more than a single pair of earrings. Because they are my favorite, I’d like to share how I create these earrings.
I start with a coil of raw silver flat wire.
I cut two matching lengths of silver.
Let’s remove the burs using a file.
Next, oxidize the earring with Black Max.
Polish away excess oxidization, leaving the textured marks oxidized.
It’s progressing as planned, I’ll pick out a couple of pearls as accents.
.Okay…..the earrings are complete!!!!
I hope you enjoyed my first blog-demo. Just to let you know, that pretty french manicure you see in the pictures, well its a thing of the past, manicured nails and jewelry making don’t mix!
Hi everyone! I’m Denise.
If you’ve been following my website you may noticed some changes, for the better I hope. I now have my own domain name, which my in house IT department (AKA my son) assures me is a good thing. *shrug*
Anyway, I am a jewelry artist. I enjoy making silver & gold jewelry. Sometimes I add pearls, or diamonds, or other accents. I usually have stories behind the pieces – like the one that I thought was so good until my son said it looked like a traffic light. (I changed it. It was better.)
So I plan to share these stories with you, as well as interesting happenings or technical techniques I use in fabricating many pieces. Hope you come back to read on!
