Necessity is the mother of invention. Yes indeed. When I have a need to create, I use what's available. And with my last supply purchase being several months ago, it ain't much right now. I know these earrings won't be for most people, but I loved making them.
I'll make some sterling silver spoon rings from these if anyone wants one. Top is $30 plus shipping, bottom is hand engraved with an H, and is $25 plus shipping. DM if interested.
Available at Art Hub in downtown Union City, Indiana.

Wide copper cuff. I'm dropping this one off at Art Hub Saturday.
LOVE the texture on this copper cuff. This was achieved by placing a loose weave cotton cloth between the copper and anvil. ⚒⚒
I don't generally work with stones, but wanted to do something with the labradorite that Madi and I picked up at the gem show last weekend. I'll hold onto this one until she wants it. 🕰
And I feel guilty for stamping crooked. I consider this less a personal critique, than an acknowledgment of the absolute beauty of everything else (that we destroy).
Sterling Kinetic hook earrings. These will be available at Art Hub starting Thursday, March 7th.
This is made by flattening a piece of 14 gauge sterling wire. It is then heated to soften the metal, and twisted with a vice and vice-grips. The ends are trimmed and soldered together, and the ring is formed to shape on a ring mandrel. The edges are then polished with a rotary tool. Said another way, #handmade. ⚒⚒
This texture is achieved by placing a cotton cloth between the anvil and copper, and pounding away. 🔨🔨
