These are the pieces I was working on the other day. It's funny how when working with sterling silver, how awful it looks while you're in the process. Between the firescale from soldering and the flux residue, you wonder, how can this dirty, burnt looking metal turn into something so shiny and gleaming? Well it does.

Orange Carnelian and Sterling Silver Chain Link Bracelet
Baltic Amber and Sterling Silver Pendant Necklace
(this pretty Amber gemstone reminds me of Orange Marmalade with all the delicious slivers of orange peel mixed in)
I received a new shipment of gemstone cabochons
they are: Petrified Palm Wood, Script Stone, Lapis, Stone Canyon Jasper, and Azurite Chrysocolla
what will they become? You'll have to wait and see :)
