Black Onyx Square Cut Copper Ring

My First Prong Ring, I used a stone out of a cuff link that belong to my mother. I only had the one so, why throw it out? eh..
I upcycled it as some jewelers's would call it. One of the prong was a bit shorter, but it did not effect the ring at all. I wonder what my mother would say :) I made this one to fit me. I used Copper wire. I am still a bit scared of the real silver and golds.

Sea Shell Wire Wrapped Dangle Bangle

I've been trying to come up with some new techniques using Cindy Lietz Dangle Bangle. Here you will see that I used her technique, then I added my touch of wire wrapping. I also used some of the sea shells that my grandkids and I found on the beach last summer. In between each shell I added a few different colors of faux glass pearls. The next one I will probably add more charms. I should have slowed down a bit during the wrapping technique, I can see gaps :(..  oh well, I still like it. 

 Can you tell which shell is PC?
 Please leave feedback. I love your comments.

Picasso? Pendant Set

This is one of my favorite pieces. I used Cindy Lietz "blend and switch" technique for the pattern. I used gold colored metal tape around the edge of the pendant and fill it with epoxy resin. I learned a bit from trial and error in making this piece But, I managed to come up with a fine set that worked.  I think it looks a little like something Picasso would make. When I wear it, I get loads of complements.
