Stuff I have been working on:


Vintage coins, vintage beads and pyrite briolettes...


Buttons made of antler and rough carnelian beads...



Copper 'vessel' - for lack of a better word...

Renate, I love your earrings and the vessel is fantastic! Did you use copper clay? Or copper sheet? Amazing!

These earrings are wonderful. I love those rough carnelian beads, and the copper vessels have such great structure. Can't wait to see what you are going to do with them.

Your earrings are lovely but that vessel is so special. Love it Renate. Love the shape and delicate nature of the pattern.

Renate, I can see you have been busy making beautiful new jewelry! I love the time-worn look to them. Have a nice weekend ahead!

I just love those pyrite briolettes! I think the copper vessel is really unique and will certainly make a great pendant of some type.
