This is a prize in my Ticket draw! (end Sept 1, 2011)

I was given a commission recently which inspired me to experiment a little more with my glow-project.


This image shows the piece of jewelry in diffrent light. Daylight, lightbulb, semi-indoor-dusk and darkness.

I made a little firefly based on the same idea as my glow crystals, and , putting a quarts crystal in the "body" of it to get the feeling of a real firefly.
The firefly was made in four parts soldered together.

The body and head, the wings, the antennae and the bezel itself, all soldered together in one go since all the solders were so close together at the head and neck.

The chain to wear it on passes through the curve of the antennae. A likeable little critter in my opinion. Next time I make one of these I'll give it more time to make sure everythng is in perfect alignment, one of the wings snapped during the soldering process when I had to bend it a bit too far. I wasreckless and sawed the lines too close together.



It is a lovely little piece and I think it looks like some kind of orchid. My next variety of this little bug thing will probably be jointed to give the wings an independant motion from the body so you can sit and play with it, flopping the rings around.

Aw, now I want to make a centipede with moving body segments...

I decided to list this on my etsy:

^___^ Teeeeeeeeny penguiiiiin

I normally hate penguins but this little guy made me giggle. Especially his BUTT.

Let me know if this is something you would be interested in buying (I'd be keeping them under $10 each, keeping in mind that the jump rings are a good chunk of the cost being gold-plated).

This is my entry into Kidrobot's 'Munny making contest'.

Munny is a 7inch blank vinyl 'toy' (Shown here [link] ) You have to paint, sculpt or do whatever you want to him & then submit your design to be judged. There was over 200 entries to the competition & I chose to turn my Munny into a gumball machine. I had lot's of fun with this one!
Thanks for taking a look!

Inspired by one of enchantress13's amazing pieces. It's all brass and basically just Japanese 12 in1 branching out into simple 2-1 chain with lots of fun green dagger and droplet beads. Of course I made matching earrings, doubling up the larger rings so they would keep their shape. I ended up adding a few links here and there to make it look less scrunched up, but it sold before I had a chance to take more pics.

Stats:
18g 1/4", 20g 1/8" Brass

This is a choker I made for my cousin as a graduation gift. It ended up being a little too long and lays low on the neck, but its not bad for the first time making something like this.

Black hemp, chain, silver spacers, red beads and a red crystal center drop.
