Sapphire Pendant, Pearl Earrings and Tourmaline, Oxidized Silver Bracelet - 06/2013- Another class in wire wrapping at Skanda in Victoria - Started at the class and finished when I got home. Skanda has amazing gemstones and findings. Very inspiring and helpful in picking out things that go together. They also told me how to oxidize the silver so that I could do it at home. I think it all goes with the new scarf I got at Maiwa.
Ra's bracelets - I've been restringing the bracelet on the left every time it breaks for the past 20 years. I think I made it quite strong this time. The two on the right I just made 06/2013. We bought the lava, lapis and brass beads on the right at Skanda when we were in Victoria in June.
Appatite Stones and Hill Tribe Silver Roundelles 05/2013 - One of my first projects after taking a beginner class at S & S Studios in Port Moody with my friend Peter - Got me started and I have been obsessively making jewlery every since - Suat was an excellent teacher. One of my first wire wrapping projects. The appatite can be wrapped around a few times for a bracelet, worn as a short necklace or hooked together with a bracelet for a long necklace.
I bought the turquoise and lapis necklace and turquoise bracelet in Palm Springs. My dad brought me the silver bangles from Mexico in the 80's.The heart pendant came from Just Jewelry in 2011. The copper bracelet came from my mom's collection of great stuff found in thrift shops.
My mom, Shirley, made the fimo beads and the long fimo beaded necklace for me about 20 years ago. I put together the wire wrapped bracelets, the chain and the chain bracelets recently. She had forgotten about the necklace and was pleased to see me wearing it.
Mosaic Pendant and Brass Earrings - I bought this pendant in North Bay, Ontario in 2012 when I went to visit Kathryn. I bought the chain, ovals and brass pieces at Skanda and put it all together when I got home.
