More New Stuff

I finished some more earrings.


These...


These...


These... AND... Something new for me...

A leather cuff! This was my first foray into the world of leathercraft.


I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

This and the earrings above will be listed in my Etsy "fancylinda" shop later tonight.

Some Earrings

I made some new earrings for my Etsy "Fancylinda" shop.
 
I was recently thrilled to find a dozen of these great old cast bronze left and right facing hands. I added their little rhinestone "jewelry" myself.
Sometimes the simplest designs are the best. Two pieces linked together and done.

This is my "should-be-patented" enamel painting technique on brass that took me over a month to figure out how to get it not to chip off.
I'm not totally happy with these yet - they need a little tweaking to the oxidation of the flowers.
More of my enamel painting on brass.
These ones are made with vintage milk glass buttons.
I don't like this photo. I will take more tomorrow when the sun is out.

 Okay, this is about as "asymmetrical" as I'll ever get. Just letting you know.

I should have these all listed later tonight, with the exception of the acorns and the birds.

I have been on a roll making earrings lately. I have even more almost ready to go, but I ran out of ear wires, and...


So, I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow.
