Practice, Practice

Ok...I've been practicing on my wiring.  Both of the earring styles are from Perfect Match:  Earring Designsfor Every Occasion by Sara Schwittek & Anita Lin.  Below is a simple pair of earrings using sterling and 8mm Amazonite rounds. 

This is another pair of earrings using sterling silver, lilac crystals, smokey quartz rounds and fluourite colored glass donuts. These were not as challenging as they look!

We had our It's Riveting Class on 11/14 and the students created pendants using Vintaj rivets and blanks.  Not only did they rivet their pendants, but they also played with some texture. 

These are Catherine's pendants (thanks to Catherine for taking and emailing me the photos).

Linda's Pendants.

Lindsey's Pendants...Lindsey did make one more pendant...but we didn't get a picture of that one.

Pam's Pendants.

Patty's Pendants.

We didn't get a picture of Theresa's Pendants.  She made 3 really nice ones as well.  All of the ladies did a great job and had fun making just a "little" noise pounding on the metal.

Hope you enjoyed the pics....let me know what you think!


  1. Those are terrific!

    I'm looking forward to taking a couple of riveting classes at BeadFest in King of Prussia, PA in April. Can't wait!

  2. Wow, there are so many beautiful, unique pieces in this post.
