with rustic poppy earrings:
My mother purchased both of these things. She also has a rustic poppy ring with a carnelian in the center. She's quite pleased with her set!
I wasn't done melting/almost melting (reticulation!) stuff after these were made, but I didn't want to remake another item. I wanted to go into something with no expectations of how it would turn out. I wanted it crinkled and worn and as organic as I could make something. I have a feeling I'm not done here, but this is what I made:
(that was the only photo I managed to capture where the citrine was showing off it's golden hue.)
And then I played a slightly different version of said game, but this time in a lulas/sticks kind of way:
Lastly, we have the sole remainder of the bunch.
I've been dreaming up all sorts of things. Charm necklaces and I go way back. I wish I still had my first one, because it was fantastic.
I'm constructing these in such a way that you can add/remove charms at your will, and I hope to offer charms separately and options to build your own necklace from scratch. The chains are made a bit differently so the charms can fit over the jump ring at the end. I'm really happy with how this turned out, and that each charm is entirely handmade.
I need to retake these photos, as my light wasn't great at the time of my attempts. Daylight savings time is throwing one hell of a wrench in photographing my work and it seems it's time to reserve that process for weekends only, when I have spots of time in the middle of the day.
