Sophie Made Me Do These
When I go to the beach to walk I collect shells or stones. Lately small sand colored stones have caught my eye and I fill my pockets with them. Thinking of all things to do with them I think..hmm, how could I wear them?? Taking Roger's Dremel I drilled a hole , and that in itself is a project, and had my neighbor show me some of her wire wrap jewelry.
I'm a visual learner and I thought..hey, I can do that. LOL...oh it's harder than it looked, as you see. Placing all the stones down Sophie will nose each one then chose. (Actually she wants to walk away with it) The design is done using Argentium Silver wire. It keeps it's shine, maybe rub it every so often. The whole piece is 2 3/4" and will sell for 12.00 plus 5.00 shipping in a small box. I will include an 18" black velvet cord.
My ultimate goal obviously is to become more skilled and incorporate Labs! Painted on or small actual paintings wrapped in silver.
$12.00 plus S&H
