YOJ wk 7 Ametrine and leather earrings

Ametrine and leather earrings

I've had a scrap of deep blue leather kicking around from a project I made several years ago, and the idea to make spacers out of it occurred to me a while back but I hadn't dug out the tools until recently. I like the contrast between the clear faceted stones and the deep blue rustic leather in these earrings.

Wk 6 - Fused fine silver earrings

Fused fine silver links

Recently I went on a binge of fusing fine silver links and made a number of these triple links. I thought they looked good all on their own.

Simple silver pieces are hard to photograph without either the details being lost or getting bad glare in places.

YOJ week 5 - citrine and amethyst earrings

Citrine and amethyst

I always enjoy it when pieces fall into place. These stones have been kicking around on my work surface for ages - I've tried them in all kinds of combinations that just didn't work, and then one day recently I tried them together and they fit perfectly. The colours are incredibly rich and the shapes compliment each other nicely. They need nothing more.
