The books are closed, the ink is black. Hard work paid off in my small business but a little unexpected help also sweetened the pot (my sisterLinda Zolten Wood partnered with me and sold $150 worth of my work in December).
My jewelry hobby is a joy, more when it is successful, less when time is scarce due to family obligations. But I feel refreshed to start a new year. Here's a peek into 2011...
This is the year of the gold leaf! Inexpensive composite leaf is coming to a large size notecard near you soon! Or a pendant or journal cover. Or?
Smart Abstracts in Gold Filled Wire
All of the earrings like these have sold, an unusual yet feminine design. Perhaps something similar with 2 small links might work?
Shapes and Sheers
Original shapes, especially based on nature, would be fun. I love leaf shapes, ocean life, or maybe just musical symbols wired with details. You've seen my starfish bracelet? Twig earrings?
The earrings are available here.
Instead of chains, pendants will be hung on sheer ribbons. Commercial chains discolor unless they are precious metal (too expensive). I can make chains by hand but they are time consuming.
Take a look then at one of the last chains to be made for awhile...
Steel Lace Necklace and Earring Set
