So my 12 week creative challenge is moving along at a steady pace, I’ve been concentrating on more elaborate pieces which take more than a day to complete, that’s why I no longer post every day now. For today though, I thought I’d share these two pieces that are coming together quite nicely.
I’m calling this the “Warrior Angel” tiara. I may add a few elements to it still and there are some tiny rings soldered every here and there for hanging beads from, I like my jewelry to have moving elements. I’ve been wanting to use these cobalt blue stones and spiral beads for quite some time, there’s many old stones and beads hanging around my studio just waiting to be used in just the right design, some of them I’ve had for more than thirty years. I think I’ll have this gold-plated, if the stones stand out too much after plating, maybe I’ll enamel the leaves like I did in this mask.
The other piece I’d like to share is a brooch that will be part of a necklace.
This one is a commission based on this piece.
The customer wants something more colorful, with a biological theme and in a silver plate. I hope she likes it!
