Gold “Basket” Necklace

  • June 6, 2012 11:53 PM

Sometimes I check photographs of jewelry I had handcrafted in gold, and came across this 14k Gold necklace which I’ve designed and handcrafted in the shape of baskets connecting to each other with loops on their backs.

The “baskets” were made by creating a model in that form, ┬áin the Repoussee technique and then cast into 14k gold pieces. The loops are handmade and soldered to each part seperately after hanging them on the bow on their open flower shaped side.

Length of the chain is 45cm. The clasp is a 14k gold hook.

Silver and Aquamarine Sea glass Earrings

I do not know what made me pick up these blue pieces of beach glass and decide to make earrings of them. Perhaps it is the blue sky these Spring days or maybe the sea, which I watch every day of the year, on my way to my handmade jewelry studio. Anyway – the result of watching the sea and the clear skies inspired me to handcraft these light blue earrings. Two pieces of glass which the sea, in collaboration with the winds and the salt, have turned into free formed beauties.

I set them in sterling silver bezels ,added ear wires and let them speak for themselves:

 

Tomorrow morning I shall be off to the beach again, to see what the shore has to offer me again!
