I was actually successful in making necklaces, two days in a row! Its because I've started working with PMC (precious metal clay) again. When I first started making jewelry I made a necklace molded from an antique button as well as a few ring focals all out of PMC. The pieces were small, fiddly, and really, a pain to work with.
Well, in my never ending way of trying new things I am working with PMC again. I've found some pretty molds, made some of my own, and have some patterns I'm going to try.
I'm even shopping for a kiln, though it will have to wait until after school starts, tuition has been paid and books purchased. For now, I'm torch firing which isn't hard, just done one at a time.
I made three of the tree of life necklaces. I've been wearing one and they are really comfortable and one of those necklaces I could wear all day long. Not too heavy or hot, which really bugs me this time of year.
In between filling orders this week I'm hoping to get another one finished.
