11 pair of earrings happening in the studio today for the first time in about 8 years! So far so good. There'll be lots of silver and gold accents on them. Some unusual stones here that I've been hoarding for years. A gorgeous pair of Morrisonite Jasper which is really hard to find anymore. An interesting colorization of ocean Jasper in pink and green. Druzies in grey, 24 karat pink gold and a pair with a titanium rainbow wash, a mismatched pair of Larimar and more. All will be available soon. If you see something that catches your eye, send me a DM and you can have first pick when they're finished. . . . . . #spiraljewelry #earrings #earringsinprogress #druzyearrings #jasper #jasperearrings #chrysocolla #chrysocollaearrings #larimar #larimarearrings #spottedagate #opj #ilovemyjob #ladysmith #instajewelry #etsyjewelryshop #opalgirl #etsyjewelry #sterlingsilverearrings #18karatgold #naturalgemstonejewelry #ilovestones #ilovegemstones

Work in progress.....The back of a pair of feather Earrings I am currently working on.....These are going to be a pair of unique and funky Earrings! #workinprogress #calledtocreate #jewelryinprogress #jewelryinspiration #earringsinprogress

Today has felt pretty productive. I've been puttering away at some new creations -- mostly necklace designs, but there are a number of pairs of earrings as well. I was actively in the process of pairing some of these hematite-included quartz points for potential earrings and had to pause for a photo. They just look so beautiful to me. I can't wait to share some of my newer creations with all of you as they continue to be finished. Beyond that, I'm so incredibly inspired by the beautiful weather and all of the plants coming to life here. We're planning out our garden at the moment; Ryan and I used to grow fruit and veggies each year, but we stopped when we moved to this property and haven't started again. This year, we intend to allocate an area near the back of the yard for additional planting (beyond our current flower gardens). We're also likely to use some of the area on our relatively spacious back deck. I hope to share some of that as the projects unfold. What projects are you working on at the moment? ☺️💕 #quartz #quartzlover #workinprogress #inspiring #hematoidquartz #quartzwithhematite #quartzwithinclusions #etsymadeincanada #etsycanada #etsyseller #etsycrystals #earringsinprogress #springtime #productivity #thingsthatmakemehappy #gardening #gardenplanning #creativity #creativeprocess #maritimer

Added four new pendants and a pair of earrings to the collection of things in progress. I will do a shop update toward the end of April... date TBA... 20 new things so far... Summer is coming!!!... my garage studio is getting pretty warm (mid-high 80s today, add torch heat) so I'm in work mode while the temps are bearable. All of these still need various levels of love to be ready to go. Introducing future: Mermaid tail ocean jasper, purple picture jasper heart, campfire-inspired Owyhee jasper, white plume agate argentium earrings, and that big beautiful pink plume priday plume agate with a nice thick hand cut bezel and floral print detailing on the bail & back. 🎉 . . . . . . . . . . #itsgettinghotinhere #onmybench #onmybenchtoday #metalsmith #silversmithing #ladysmith #workinprogress #instasmithy #prettyrocks #summeriscoming #earringsinprogress #pendantsinprogress #jewelryinprogress #makersgonnamake #handmadejewelry #etsyseller #jewelry #workfortoday #myhappyplace #🎨 #🔨

Working on Sprig Studs for orders. Personal leaf texture rolled onto sheet, punched into discs. Wire rims formed. Granules and leaves ready to start assembling. Torch on!

I dislike dirt and grime on my hands but paint, meh, paint can stay for a couple of seconds. #lastnight #earringsinprogress #goldblackwhite

Progress pictures for tonight. Fueled by an evening pot of coffee and intense need for zone out zen art time after four plus hours of rush hour accident road closure traffic driving (listening to the news for good measure) as the sandwich bread around landscaping work and a full day of people. (Love people but definitely need that alone time to recharge after) I also hammered a bunch on some new things I am excited about! Just focusing on hammering feels so good! . . . . . . . . #onmybench #metalsmith #silversmith #instasmithy #ladysmith #riojeweler #jewelry #introverttime #myhappyplace #jewelryinprogress #bohojewelry #tiffanystone #plumeagate #prettyrocks #spinnerring #handmadeisbetter #makersgonnamake #earringsinprogress #morecoffeeplease

🎶Three pairs of earrings, two floral pendants...Six spinner riiings🎶 hand filing & sanding and leather mallet is done, ready to tumble polish these (a few will get tripoli polish on the wheel first). Then I will complete the rings, patina/antique, polish, set the stones, polish again, clean, photograph, list, repeat. . . . . . . . #metalsmith #metalsmithing #silversmith #silversmithing #ladysmith #instasmithy #spinnerrings #earringsinprogress #earrings #jewelry #onmybench #etsyseller #workinprogress #silverjewelry #almostdone #ihatepolishing

Progress!! The dangles make a pretty little chime sound. ...that ugly strip of metal in the second picture...is one of my most loved tools. Knew Concepts titanium soldering strip. Bends into all sorts of useful shapes and is my helping hand in tricky soldering situations, like when it really needs one more little argentium granule in an odd place as an afterthought (which is often) EDIT: switching gears- those will split and become two pairs of earrings, together with dangles AND cabs they are... on the heavy side. Lighter earrings are happier earrings. . . . . . . . #onmybench #metalsmith #silversmith #ladysmith #handmadejewelry #etsyseller #myfavoritethings #futurethings #earringsinprogress #jewelryinprogress #wearableart

Есть время #вязать - я #вяжу. Верю, что будут время и силы на подготовку и сборку. Когда-то. Не важно. А сейчас вижу и радуюсь. Когда-нибудь будут #серьги. Особенные, лёгкие и нежные. А сейчас это просто моё спокойствие и #вдохновение. (На фото книга «русские сказки» 1953 года) #verswork #inprogress #crochet #crocheting #lace #laceearrings #crochetearrings #handmade #handcrafted

Lots of little flat granules and rings are involved in the earring design for March! Newsletter subscribers will receive their email tonight with details of this month's earring design and how to buy them at a great price. I will reveal the new design tomorrow so if you want in with a chance to buy them, subscribe now!

I’m designing a statement earring version of the Branch pendants I posted yesterday. I love the way these evoke the natural artistry of Bonsai trees. But another part of me dreads figuring out how to solder round wire to a flat edge without the solder showing... 🤔🙄😬 . #statementearring #bonsaitree #branch #winterbranches #earringsinprogress #designsketch #sketchbookpage #alwaysdesigning #alwaysdrawing #pnwartist #jewelerslife
