new work

I have been working in real life and working some on the creative side. Since making jewelry is a passion and not my profession sometimes work gets in the way. Ha! I have been fascinated with the idea of sewing metals together. It has been fun working with different gauges of metal and wrapping on stones and connecting metal to metal. The texture and the pliability changes with each wrap. I am learning to predict the  breaking points of different types of metal, sterling silver vs copper, argentium vs gold filled.  There is also a breaking point to my hands and tools have become my best friend! here are a few photos of what I have been working on. Thanks for reading!
