12-064 A strip of recycled sterling has been heated and forged over and over again to create this open moon shape. I then heated the edges of the opening to melt and distort them. Swarovsky crystal stars, blue and white pearls, and assorted glass beads spill out of the moon as it dangles from a sterling clasp.
about 2 " long

12-066 - This copper tube has been beveled to hold a sterling chain and sterling findings to create a unique charm.

Over 21 carats of a large, luscious aquamarine cabachon has been set in heavy sterling to hang upside down.
