Adventures in jewelry

Hello friends,

I haven't been blogging much these past few months because I wanted to focus primarily on working hard to develop my own style of jewelry.
It started once I purchased some decorative vintage and antique buttons. I began casting them in silver and was so excited about the outcome that I started to use them in my designs.
I do like to make one of a kind pieces, which keeps things interesting for me, however, I also want to offer more items that I can re-create.
There might be a lot of big changes coming up next year ( maybe a move ) which makes me want to work even harder to make a dent in this competitive jewelry marketplace. I rarely take a day off these days. If I am not working at my other job, I am in my studio. I love it, because I can see results. In turn I feel well balanced, happy and complete. Sure, there are days when I feel like the muse doesn't want to come out to play. I have learned, when that happens, to just take it easy, to take a step back without being too hard on myself. One simply can not be creative 24/7.

Below are some new items I have made in the past little while. Hope you like them as much as I do.

How have you all been doing?

Happy wednesday ya'll!

Thanks Emma! I think I'm on a total button kick lately. Wonder how long it will last...

I believe you have a very beautiful and well-crafted style. It's so nice to hear your thoughts on making jewelry, as we seem to share many and it's comforting knowing there are others like me in my little head! I look up to your work greatly. Your etsy shop is looking stunning lately. I can tell you've been hard at work and you are creating wonderful pieces. All my best to you!
