I wanted to be able to show you the size of jewelry on a real person. The most convenient person is ME! Yikes. I had to get over myself and just take photos of me, flaws and all.
I remembered that my phone has a camera, so while I was working the other day, I snapped a few photos to show you the process of making a piece of jewelry.
We were lucky enough to have Tonya Sell come to Ely to teach an acrylic painting class. I haven't made a segue away from my medium for quite a while and thought a little inspiration was in order.
A friend was over while I was drawing ideas for this piece. Once I got it right, she said it reminded her of a fox. So that's what I named it.
I have a stone that reminds me of a dark night with moonlit clouds. It called out to me last week. Maybe because it's dark out now, the moon is getting more attention.
I took a few collage-type photos to show the way gems correlate across my designs.
I use semi-precious accent gemstones in most of my pieces. The little gems in these earrings are carnelian, peridot, moonstone, amber, amethyst, and lab grown ruby.
