How I spent my Thanksgiving Vacation

This is my one employee. She’s not very speedy. She can’t see small things without her magnifying light. And she knows nothing about making jewelry. But she’ll work for free. Sounds good! (Thanks for your help, mom)

Infinity Necklace

Ok, as promised, here is the final version of the model in the previous post. I am so happy with the way it turned out. This is such an elegant, simple piece. It's going to be sold as a fund-raiser for Dress for Success River Cities. Dress for Success provides free business suits for low income women who are transitioning into the workforce.

The necklace will go on sale December 8th. More details to follow!

A Trio of New Pendants

Fresh from the casters, unpolished and with sprues still attached...

Polished, with jump rings attached and sprues removed.

Still a work in progress. I don't know which of these I like the best, or how i want to use them. The wreath style is delicate and feminine. The gear style is more industrial. And the strange circle shape is sort of contemporary and urban. I'm getting molds made of all of them, so that buys me a little time to make up my mind...

Just Listed!

Cleaned up the earrings in my last post, and listed them on Etsy! They look so much nicer after a day in the tumbler.... Here they are on Etsy.

Also, working on this:

Of course, I should be working on my thesis this week.... So the jewelry will need to take a back seat for a while.
