This blog is designed to allow you to come along with me on my journey through developing my talent and style in the art of silversmithing. Along the way we will try out new techniques together, make some jewelry and have an awful lot of fun and you get to peek into the new life I have made in Florida.

The Pods in Progress
My lil pods continue to develop, their color has been added now the stamen is being put together, I couldn't stand it any longer I just had to polish them up and make them shiny , this was a hard decision to leave them matte or put a shine on them, the shine won. Oh well. now the stamens are a very pale pink druzy cabs , mine of course , free form sort a round set in high bezels don't know why but I thought this somehow fit the idea, I can not begin to tell you how long I have wanted to make these pods why who knows but time frame is forever they will be a part of my jewelry line, I can imagine all kinds of interesting things to do with them my mind is blazing with ideas, here is the latest photo's , I hope you have enjoyed coming along on this jewelry challenge with me, wait till you get to see what we create in our next challenge , a lil hint its called the "Pink Cadillac" yeah for real interesting huh?
