These are some of the heart pendants I have recently listed. Valentine's Day on my mind! But hearts represent so much more. Many people buy hearts for themselves, as a reminder of everything they hold dear, or a certain person, or..... blue_heartgreen_heartpurple_heart

This pendant originally had a labradorite, which sadly broke. I finally decided to rework the pendant and it is now an ocean jasper pendant that I just listed!

A honeycomb ring all soldered before I apply a few layers of gold to some of the cells. After that I polish, add patina to the silver cells and do the final finishing.

Sometimes a piece takes a different direction than I initially thought. I had planned this one with a burro creek jasper but in the end I chose moonstone!

A fired sage leaf. In summer I pick some nice ring sized sage leaves and make an imprint in precious metal clay. Once dry, I sand the edges smooth and fire them in my kiln. This one just came out and was given a brush.

The first steps of making a tree pendant with tiny marquise gemstones. I make the pendant in fine silver clay, embed the stones in the clay. I work at the tree for a long time to get it just right. I let it dry, then add new branches, let it dry, etc.
