Perhaps my favorite to date are these hoop earrings that I hammered silver wire to create. The drops in the center are lemon quartz. The piece was then oxidized and polished to its lovely smoky color. They sold the day after I finished them so I must make more.

Lots of new Sparkly things
This amber pendant is absolutely delicious. Amber is such an amazing organic material. It has a multitude of colors, can be pressed into a variety of shapes and although it looks substantial it is very light to wear. This teardrop pendant was wrapped in gold wire and hung on a multiple strand necklace of amber beads in lemon and honey colors.
I Have been working on lots of new sparklers with the beads and wire and findings that I acquired last month. I love the process of matching beads and wrapping them all up together to form wearable art.
These are some Victorian style bracelets that are great fun to make and wear. I have done some up in gold and silver wire and many different colors of swarovski crystals. As Miss Hannigan says they "shine like the top of the Chrysler building".
