This is my most recent commission. It was a piece that I made for a dear friend's wedding, and her awesome wedding photographer at Benton Park Photography was kind enough to grant me permission to use the pictures if I link back to her. Becca at Benton Park sprinkles pretty dust on everything!

The piece is a combination of cultured and freshwater pearls, shell and sterling silver. The shell found it's way to me in the most interesting way. One of my sister's former co-worker's had an Aunt who wintered in Hawaii. One of the Aunt's favorite things to do was hunt for shells. Last year when the Aunt passed, the niece boxed up her extensive shell collection and just started sending them out to everyone she knew. She sent my sister a recycled tissue box packed with shells. Those shells found their way to my coffee table and inspired this piece.

Without further ado... )

Come on, find a branch and settle in for a nice companionable chat about making jewelry. Whether you're just starting out or have been doing this for a million years, you're welcome here -- especially if you know the joy of finding some interesting shiny bit that fills you with the overwhelming desire to make a piece of wearable art-goodness out of it.

We're all magpies here.

If it's shiny, we probably want to make jewelry out of it.

So... what have you been working on lately, and what treasures have you found?
