The sterling silver for this bangle has been textured with lace in my rollers to create the pattern before I began forming its shape. I always enjoy making bangles as it takes me back to my silversmithing day’s of hammering sheets of silver.
This bangle is 14mm deep the inner diameter is 6.5 cm.
This necklace consists of beautiful freeform Hematite crystals. The Inclusions in the gemstones give lovely patterns. The beads are in hues of orange, red and pink. It is very delicate looking and most unusual. I have placed silver torpedo like silver beads in the necklace for contrast.
Approximatley 45cm Long and each nugget is about 1cm in diameter.
This is a rich pink Rhondonite is a semi precious gemstone from Australia. I chose this stone because it reminds me of an abstract painting with lolly pop trees in the foreground. I purchased it from an excellent gemstone cutter in America and set with a silver setting that I believe complements the markings in the stone.
The silver links on this chain have been formed using the texture of a leaf from a Ginkgo tree. Between some of the links I have used fresh water pearls 7-10mm each which are cream, blue and green in shade. The chain is 1cm wide and 103 cm long which enables you to wear it long or wrap it round twice for a shorter necklace. I have made a matching toggle clasp which is easy to open.
