Not that I have a lot of followers, but my sincerest apologies for the neglect! I do have an excuse of sorts though - I've been to school! After working on plated wire with just my pliers to secure my jewelry for some time, I finally decided to take the plunge (and dip into my bank account) and attend JAI (Jewelry Arts Institute) for 4 intensive Saturday classes. So I took a break from the shop in hopes of improving the quality and workmanship of my pieces. Below are some photos of what I created in class, nothing is perfect or even great, but at least proof that I've been busy while away! Please be on the lookout for new pieces in the shop as soon as I can get my hands on a mini torch for my apartment (watch out Hell's Kitchen)!
these are probably my least fave (just not my style), but we were required to make them and i learned a lot while doing so!
