things I been working on...

I just like to share very quickly few pieces I was working on. First piece is over sized poppy ring that I made for custom order. When I get this request, I didn’t know how I’m going to do it since I’m not use to work in such a large piece. So I think and think… well make my not so long story super short, I just love it!!!! I love the composition of large flower and dainty wire shank. I love the colors. The colors are unbelievably beautiful! This is why I love custom orders. Let me make pieces that I’d not think to make other wise.

But order for me to successfully make, I need to have skills to do it. so I’m taking a jewelry making class learning basic metalsmithing. And this one is the one I made with riveting technique.

More & more coming soon!

natsuko - i can't wait! i've done everything with jewelry, but i've never tried enameling. when did you learn how to do it?

aimee, I learn enameling at local art center. I took enameling class there for about 2years. now I'm taking jewelry for hoping to incorporate enamel pieces to metal in more ways!
