So this is what I’ve been working on in between orders or down time. I have sketches and wax pieces in different shapes, sizes, etc that I can’t seem to make up my mind on so instead of getting them cast, I let them sit. Yeah I know, not very productive. Some drawings are from Spring of last year. O.o

I’ve been trying to make a full collection for years to not only curb my inclination of constantly making what pops to mind then getting bored with it, but to also have a theme or flow that can be used for a FULL collection that stays for a season. So far my Stardust collection is the only one that I made as a full collection with earrings, a bracelet, necklaces and rings. Everything else has not received the same treatment and I always have customers asking me for a texture in another piece and I rarely have time to do it if it’s not already been made.

My ridged ring is now my new favorite (Still love the Stardust Collection) because it has this woody texture but it’s not a wood texture. It’s hard to describe but I love it and I want to expand the line into more organic shapes with the lined texture. I made a pair of mixed metals ridged earrings but I’d like to make a thinner version for those that can’t afford earrings over $200.
