2011 - week 9

Nothing photographed this week because nothing got finished. I had two short sessions at the bench though. The first was disastrous. The second I got a lot of little components for things started but nothing got finished. I was so happy to have a good session that I quit when I started to get tired and didn't try to force anything to come together. Maybe next time!

2011 - week 8

2011 - week 8

I had one of those days where nothing wanted to work. Finally, in a fit of frustration, I gave up all thoughts of finishing something good and just made this little (1/2" diameter) bead. Another day I will pickle it and polish it and maybe even embellish it. For now I'm calling it done.

2011 - week 7

Away on vacation in Mexico all week so nothing happened on the bench.

2011 - week 6

Experimental open backed bezel set coin pearl pendant. It has proven more difficult to set than I expected (and I expected difficulty) but I think the basic idea has promise.

2011 - week 5

Iolite, moonstone, and plain sterling rings. I intended the whole group to be a stacking ring set but didn't think about the clearance needed under the moonstone and set it too low into the band. It fits nicely on the adjacent finger though so all is not lost.

The Ring That Wouldn't Be
2011 - week 4

Sterling silver. Amethyst. Size 4.

This ring did not want to come together. I ended up having to remake almost every component in it, sometimes more than once. The kid is happy with it in the end though so I can't complain.

2011 - week 3

No photos this week. I did get some time at my bench but nothing came together.
