articulated crosses

Fabricated Sterling.  Approximately 1 1/2 inches.

This pair of crosses was commissioned for a confirmand and sponsor.  They’re a variation of some I’ve done previously.  These are smaller, and with a little difference in emphasis.

This shows one of the crosses with a chain.

These articulate for movement.

too much Christmas cheer

Fabricated Sterling and commercial chain.

I’m just playing around with the bells.

Admittedly, it’s a little ridiculous. But it sure was fun.

It’s just what Mrs. Claus needs on a cold winter night.

sapphire pendant 

Fabricated Sterling and sapphire. Approximately 3/8 inches. 

This little pendant is for my granddaughter. It’s not her birthstone, but sapphire is the color of her beautiful eyes.  The bail and the three rivets holding it together are 14 karat gold. The rest is Sterling. 

hanging garnet and aquamarine pendant 

Fabricated silver, garnet and aquamarine beads.  Approximately 1 1/2 inches.

A derivative of an older design (see the post dated June 11).  This is a commissioned piece.  I think it works.

Out in the sunshine showing a bit of the stones’ depth.

One more, a close up.  All the pieces pivot on the rivet going through the bail.

Just finished.  Been at this one for a couple of years.  Thirty-eight beads; about 15 minutes to make each one.  The four large beads are about 9/16″, the small ones are about 3/8″.  The total length is just under 19″.  The beads are hollow, but it still has a little over 2 1/4 oz. of silver.

There are four large beads, six medium sized, and 28 of the smaller ones.

A lobster claw clasp holds it securely.  It’s held together with a vinyl seven strand stainless wire, doubled.

It fits like a loose choker.
