Earrings, a Pendant and a Ring...

Carnelian 'stamens' in a copper flower. I had made the copper domed, shiney flowers a few days ago and didn't know what to do with them...until tonight. These are fun and hang just a little down, like a droopy flower.

And this is how they hang. I love these earrings!

Valentine's day is on the way, so I thought I would make something heartlike.

I have been loving reticulation. The textures are amazing, I don't know if they come off so nice in photos (and it is late, so my photos suck), but really it is such fun to melt metal!
This ring is a reticulated flower which has been riveted using a copper rivet to add some interest. The flower actually twists around freely. It needs a little extra filing, sanding and polishing, but I couldn't wait to post it. 'Petal Ring 2' and this one actually turns around!

I would like to make more rings that have movement, it is fun to play with them when you are thinking, or just bored.
