I love playing with my beads and wire! The combinations are endless and when it all comes together...fulfilling!
I love Handmade Lampwork Beads and working them in with Gold, Sterling Silver, copper, metal smithing, Murano glass. semi precious gemstones, precious gemstones, free form wire work with lots of movement in the designs for necklaces, earrings, bracelet, pendant, cuffs. I am learning forging, texturing, fusing, soldering and basic metal smithing.
I started making Organic Bath and Beauty products and pouring hand made Soy Candles and they are Wonderful!
My future endeavors will be soap and lotions. Look for them soon!
Skills and Techniques
I need to learn new techniques constantly. I usually teach myself through tutorials, trial and error and just plain thinking it out. I am teaching myself how to solder, metal smithing and fusing right now. I want to take my jewelry to the next level and for me, that would be silver smithing. I will start in copper and progress from there. However, they say copper is the new silver.
