I think it's time to make some more beads! Bryan and I had a good time last fall making these for the big squash blossom necklace. This time I'm going to add some stamping texture to them and go BIG! I'll get them started this weekend and share the progress next week.

More bear progress

I've managed to get in a couple of good nights in the studio so far this week, loving it! I have school tonight so may only sneak 30 minutes in there today. So, the bear cuff is coming along nicely I think. Can't wait to get the patina on it. This one is a commission piece but Im thinking I will have to make myself something along this line but I'm going to use that European Bison as my subject. Look at that face, he's too stinking adorable!!

Back in the studio!

Well, I think I've finally gotten over my slump. This was the longest time I've ever spent out of the studio.
These little charms are for the 13th Etsymetal charm swap. I've titled them " 13 course dinner,a.k.a. 13 unlucky little fish".
Then last night I got in there and started working on a new bird earring design and a long awaited custom cuff incorporating the bear I made on a brooch last year.
This cuff is going to have so many layers it's kinda boggling my mind how I'm going to get it all together, fingers crossed!
