New rings!

I’ve been experimenting a lot with rings and focusing on more metalwork. While my repertoire still needs a massive expansion I wanted to include what I knew, which is mainly hammering. XD

I also wanted to include more of my fused glass and try to mix metals and textures. This is what I came up with.

This is a mix of 14g sterling silver wire and 20g silver plated copper wire. The base/ring shank is sterling, and I hammered the ends flat and sort of shaped them around the glass. I used the plated wire to anchor it further. I really like the mix of wires. The glass itself is a small sliver of blue foil CBS 90COE dichroic glass, capped with 90coe green Bullseye and fired to a medium fuse.

This ring is has a base of 14g brass wire, hammered in the same way I did the sterling silver. I used gold-plated copper wire to wrap the glass in the same fashion. I was worried the brass and gold colors might clash, but in the end they went together beautifully. The glass is a base of yellow 90coe Bullseye, with a strip of CBS 90coe iridescent dichro, capped with a piece of orange scrap I had on hand and fired to a medium fuse.

I know the last one doesn’t have hammered ends but I wanted to include it anyway. I got the piece of glass from my former metalworking professor and I really like how it turned out. Sterling silver ring shank with silver plated copper wirework and anchoring.

There will be more, when I can get more of the sterling wire. 🙂

New Pieces and Sneak Peeks

Hello lovelies! 😀

I am designing a new collection for the upcoming fashion show in Sacramento. Tentative dates
are October 22nd or November 5th, and for the sake of time am cheering for the November date. XD

This collection, like the last, is inspired in great part by Japanese fashion, bits of Visual Kei and Gothic Lolita, and the many wonderful flamboyant pieces of clothing lurking in Daisuke Asakura’s closet. I would LOVE to see that man’s closet. XD

Anywho, here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come!

The red shirt is not part of the outfit, it just looked nice under the jacket. XD The shirt itself…is now in pieces. 😛 You’ll get to see what it is soon enough! 😀

I’m working roughly half repurposed, half from scratch. Repurposed at this point is my strongest point as a designer, and I found some fabulous pieces I can’t wait to start ripping, cutting, and sewing.

New Collections

These are mini-collections of pendants, with exception of the Iceland pendants.

These are dichroic glass peace signs I got in Arizona, and as far as I can tell they have been slumped in a mold. I made simple necklaces out of these. Only four are available on Etsy, and I have price them at $5 each.

Dominoes! This idea got a pretty good response on DeviantART, and so I’ve kicked it off with the first five. These will be on Etsy in a few days.

Aaaaand here’s the lastest batch of Iceland Pendants. One of the clear pieces has already been sold. 🙂

That is all for now. I’ma go get some much-needed sleep today. XD
