lapis pendent

Fabricated Sterling and lapis lazuli. Approximately 1 inch.

This is a brushed finish, giving it a bit of patina.  I thought it suited this piece well.

The image below shows the articulation.  I like to give the pieces movement.

 

 

This is the sketch I started with.

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.

belt and buckle

Sterling buckle, keeper, and leather belt.  Approximately 2.5 inches.  I’ve been out of commission for a bit.  Back in the workshop today for the first time in four months.  It felt really good.  The buckle was previously made, but I manufactured the keeper and cut the belt today.  Not bad for one eye!  Detail highlighting buckle, embellishment, and keeper.Reverse.  Here one can see the dimension and the embellishment.This is the full view of the buckle, belt and the two embellishments.  This can be custom fit to your dimensions.  Note there is only one hole in the belt.  $250

Dutch coffee spoons

Dutch coffee spoons, fabricated Sterling and 14k gold, approximately 5 1/2 inches.

These are the latest addition to the Dutch coffee spoon collection.  They are meant to be “everyday” spoons, unique to the individual, and part of the morning routine.

The detail on the left shows the “vine” embellishment of one and the bowl of the other.  On the right is the opposite end of each.  This end is embellished with a 14 gold knob.


The reverse of both.

belt hanger

Fabricated silver.  Just over an inch long.

Here’s how it functions for me, although, any number of things could be suspended from it.  The idea is based on a medieval practice.  At that time they primarily were used to hang purses (in lieu of pockets).  When wearing a waistcoat the button holes provide the means to anchor a pocket watch chain.  This belt hanger will work when there are no serviceable buttons available.

Detail in which the rivet and decorative ring are very visible.
