American Jewelry Design Council Variations on a Theme

Several weekends ago I attended the American Jewelry Design Council Variations on a Theme: 25 Years of Design exhibit at the Kent State University Museum. We were very luck to have such an amazing exhibit or jewelry that pushed the jewelry/art bounds. I fell in love with this bracelet by Diana Vincent. It is sterling silver and white sapphires

Hammer Time!

This past week I worked on a couple of my hammers, see the sparks above!
The hammer below is shined to a near mirror finish, you can see my reflection and the reflection of the wood grain in the table. It's beautiful, and ready for jewelry making.

The hammer below is textured, I used a cut off disk and carved into an old hammer. It was fairly simple and now we can play with an interesting texture. I'll be sure to post more!
