Last night I set out on a journey to make a necklace I have been envisioning for days now, and I just couldn't seem to figure out how to do it, except to just go ahead and do it!
Being self-taught leaves so many questions unanswered and remembering all the melted metal of the first year of silversmithing makes me feel very cautious when trying new things.
All I want to do this week is set stones together!!! I got it in mind to make an upside down peacock tail and put it on a really good sterling chain to fashion one of those necklaces mothers pass down to daughters.
Here we have Gaspeite and Crow Springs Turquoise, both with really nice reddish matrix...
the combination of blue and green is really very refreshing.
In the Metal Shop later today!
