The April issue of LJJA has arrived!

LJJA_April_2015_pages_30-31
MixedMedia_SeaFlower_Pin-Pendant_ResinLJJA is short for Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist magazine and my “Sea Flower” pin/pendant is in the April 2015 issue…pages 30 through 34 show instructions for making it!  I’ve used a resin “Cosmic Cabochon” in this piece…I still have a few one-of-a-kind resin cabochons available in my Etsy shop (note to self…must make more!).  If you know how to saw and solder metal, you may want to make this fun project!  My photo of the “Sea Flower” is shown below.  The sterling silver surrounding the cabochon is hammer-textured and oxidized with liver of sulphur to achieve the colors one might see in aquatic plants!
