Something To Go With the Suede Jacket

About this design:

...that was the wish of my friend. We picked these stones, and I had a bit of fun with some brass sheet metal... sawing, filing and hammering. Right now I'm very much into necklaces that can be worn both very long, or wrapped short. Feels so cool to wear it long...

And then some earrings to match, of course. Tumbled those to finish, think I'll throw the necklace into the tumbler too, but in these pics it is still a bit rough (although the camera shows off all the microscopic scratches in the earrings too...)


Tiger Eye nuggets and chips (wish I remembered where I got the nuggets!), picture jasper (LB), on wire. Note that I got the idea to cover the crimp with a large hole bead! Brass sheet (lead free) and wire (1 and 0,8 mm).

    Now I got my suspicion about the direction of the photos confirmed! If they are rotated in Windows 8, they are like they weren’t rotated at all. Opened in Windows 7 and rotated, they turn :-) allright here!

    Great necklace and earring set! Lariat style necklaces are so much fun and can be worn so many different ways. Love your brass work–I wish I was more adventurous to try something like that– those earrings are stunning! :)

    I think the rustic look of the necklace will go great with a suede jacket!!

    I love the earrings. Simple, but very well crafted.
