gosh I have had a busy year so far...so busy that I have not had time to write blog for like FOREVER!
So I have been making making making for lovely clients every month. rings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, anklets, earrings, brooches, lapel pins. A pretty long list.
I was recently commissioned to make a breast milk stone and then set it into a sterling silver ring made to a clients design brief. This client wanted strands of her children's hair set into this ring!. I processed her breast milk and created the stone in slow cure epoxy resin.
I also have been commissioned to create memorial jewellery for a client. I created a heavy weight sterling silver pendant and set her late Sons ashes with fire red opal into a channel I carved into the piece when I made the model in wax.
I have been really enjoying opal inlay or inlay pieces in general and this has been a real skill development.
