Even More Exciting!!

Riveted bracelet
"Calgary’s Susan White has been a jewellery maker for 15 years, transitioning from lampwork and metals to polymer and metals. Her etched copper links are accented with gilders paste.
The squares of pearlized polymer are riveted on. Below you can see her earrings with silver tubes riveted in the middle of lentil beads. More links here and here. Have a riveting weekend!"

This is what I saw when I did my usual morning check of Polymer Clay Daily.  Anyone who works with polymer clay knows that this is a huge deal; for the rest of you, take my word for it!  Thank you Cynthia, for a great start to the weekend!

How Exciting!

I was pleasantly shocked yesterday when I checked out one of my blogs, Craftgossip, and there were a pair of my earrings in the post!   Here's the link, and here is a picture of the earrings:
They were made from a sheet of clay I created using a bunch of scrap clay, so kind of serendipity/recycled.  Then I riveted a heavy sterling silver tube through the centre.

Calyx Sale

Thanks to all who came out to see me at the Calyx Show yesterday.  It was a fantastic day, lots of amazing artwork of all kinds, as usual!  I was happy with my sales, and it is always great to get out there and get some input from people as to what they are looking for in jewellery.  Here are pictures of some of the pieces I made with etched metal and polymer, all sold.  I am in the process of listing some jewellery on etsy, so you can check that out.  And if you saw something at the show and would like a different colour, size, give me a shout at
