This week a coupleÂ of my colleagues and friends tagged me in a challenge that’s been going around Facebook — sounds fun, I’m game! Â Beth CyrÂ (aÂ college classmates from the University of Georgia metals program) and Parker BrownÂ (my friend from SNAG conferences past, and occasional co-conspirator of nerdy art ventures) both challenged me to post images of my work for 5 days straight, and tag another artist to join in.
Today is Day 1, so here we go! Â This is a loose collection of Spiral Pendants that I have made in the last 5 years. Â The first one was a commission piece to re-make a client’s opal ring into a necklace. Â Since I keep getting orders for more it has turned into a series.
Materials: sterling silver, 10k gold, opal; appx 1″ diameter; 2010.
Materials: sterling silver, opals; diameters: appx 1.25″, 1″, and 1″; 2012.
