Just finished my newest pendant made from silver PMC! So pleased with how this came out. I hadn’t used PMC in years and I wasn’t sure I remembered how to do this. I also somewhat MacGyver’d my own mold-making technique using hot glue if you can believe it. Somehow, I will need to make a video of that so that you understand what I mean, but for now, here is the finished piece. The center design was molded and cast in PMC then fused to a piece of sterling silver sheet that I ran through my rolling mill. Once that was set, I added beaded wire for trim. I added two little bales on the back, LOS patina, chain and beads. All done and ready to be worn! ...

I’ve always put my own dried plants through the rolling mill when embossing texture onto my metal surface, but I’ve never tried an embossing plate before…. Until now! Ok I am hooked. I have a feeling my drawer is going to accumulate a few plates in my future. But me thinks that I will likely make my own by etching brass . That’s the illustrator in me talking. I’ve had this stock in my drawer for a while and tried my first bangle with it. Being nugold, I’m definitely going to add some other elements to it! Stay tuned!! ...

I’m not changing my side hustle making jewelry. But anytime I paint pottery, it’s going to be for the benefit of my brand. I love how my “display” platter came out! You”ll see this every so often when I photograph my jewelry! ...

Had to share my latest house project. I’ve been working on renovating what used to be my 4 year olds tiny bedroom… she’s ten now so this little space is becoming a guest room with big punches: accent wallpaper, new sage green paint, white trim and a twin daybed that pulls out to a queen. Ahhhhh so much better! ...
