Adieu, but not forever!

SeaFlowerPinPendant_BeautyShot_edited-1I recently sent this piece off to the photographer who does work for Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist magazine. My step-by-step project for the “Sea Flower” Pin/Pendant has been accepted for publication and features the following techniques: making a resin cabochon, sawing and texturing metal, making and soldering a bezel, creating a wirework pin back, and adding patina to metal. Magazine content is planned months in advance so this project is tentatively scheduled to appear in the May/June 2015 issue. I’m thrilled to have my work accepted in such a great magazine! Thank you, Helen Driggs, editor at Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist magazine!  P.S.  If you like the resin cabochon I’ve made, I have several more colorful “Cosmic Cabochons” listed in my shop. Each cabochon is one of a kind, individually handmade by me. They are wonderful components for use in bead embroidery as well.  Shown below is my bead embroidered “Mermaid’s Cuff”:

    I have unwanted glass stringers. (in case you don’t know, those are thin strands of glass pulled down from thicker rods.) You can crush them up, you can sort them into different color piles… but my main point is do you think you can use them in your cabochons? I also wonder if you think you can use them for copper enameling projects? The COE of my stringers is mainly 104. Let me know and I’ll send them to you.


    • Sarah, thank you for your kind offer! I have jars of glass shards and a container filled with broken stringers in my enamel drawer, so I’m going to take a pass for the time being, but it was so nice of you to think of me!


  4. Congratulations, I’m looking forward to seeing you (your work) in the magazine.
