One thing leads to another, and never ends!

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 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 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!

They are silver clay that has been textured, shaped and fired.  Then I patinaed them with LOS and soldered earwires on them.  Enjoy!


  1. I really love this pendant. I think it may well be my favorite! What a beautiful way to showcase a striking cab. Well done!

  2. Thank you very much! It is a gorgeous stone and I am really happy how it turned out! Stay tuned for my next one....might be the one to show why I started with this stuff in the first place!

  3. The pendant is fantastic! I really love the organic style to the bezels you're doing. It really suits the stones. Love it!
