new necklace design

I am starting to work with copper again and it is really fun! When I started out doing this many years ago I did alot with copper and twisted wire shapes but then drifted away from that. Now that copper is having a resurgence in popularity (and it is less expensive than sterling!) I am drawing upon some of my old designs and adding a few new elements in. This is the first piece I have made along these lines and you should be seeing many more in the future!

another treasury

I am so lucky to be on this fabulous team - they really support everyone and make sure they have visibility on a site where we are alongside thousands of jewelry artists. Here I am in a great treasury created by dashery ( http://dashery.etsy.com/ ) of our very talented team members!

I just downloaded a new program that helps you capture pictures on your computer screen- I haven't mastered it yet but here is my first attempt! I listed this treasury in the previous blog post but figured I would use it as my practice image. More attempts with other treasuries will follow!
