Spring and summer collection items

It's 7:30 pm and I just got out of my studio. It's been a fun, long day creatively speaking. I managed to finish some items I have been working on for a while. Tried some casting as well which unfortunately didn't want to turn out for me. The molten silver just didn't want to flow the way I liked it to. I'll try again tomorrow.
My latest pieces are not oxidized. I need a change. In fact, oxidized, rustic jewelry doesn't sell as good here in Norway. People seem to really like bright, simple pieces. So, with that in mind I decided to polish all of my new items to a beautiful brushed bright finish. I really love it. The pastel colors in the chalcedony stones come out looking so fresh and bright. Hope you'll like it too. Really would like your honest opinion.
So, here we go:


Pink, lime green and blue chalcedony in sterling silver.

I have also have a couple of earrings in the works which I hope to have completed by tomorrow!

The smell of shepherds pie from the oven is telling me to wrap this up. John's been patient with me these days having late dinners :)


Thanks for reading!

Love all your pieces! That first pendant is just stunning! I prefer shiny silver as well. It's hard to gauge whether to oxidize or not.

I particularly liked the chrysophrase pieces. They have a 1960's feel, all space age and clean modern lines. I'm a big fan (and little bit of a collector) of 1960's and 1970's Scandinavian silver jewelry, and your new pieces really hit a vein there.

Wonderful to hear that you like the new items. I do find it hard at times to not oxidize because I feel that that seems to be so current around etsy's parts. Maybe we can start a new trend?

Oh wow! That is pretty cool! Never thought of that, but now that you mention it...
