New design now in my shop — riveted hearts! I have been working on a way to combine metal and glass and, like most new learning experiences, it has been a bit of trial and error.
First, figuring out the best heart shape to work with the design I had in mind. Then practicing my coring technique (the ‘rivet’ part of the heart). Lots of beads didn’t make it this far. (sad LOL) But that is the learning part. What works, what doesn’t.
Finally, the addition of a bail — the part that ‘connects’ the hole to the chain. I have a mix of pre-made and handmade bails to choose from, in copper and silver (fine silver and sterling plate). Each listing has detailed information.
I will be adding more in the coming days, but check out what I have now in the shop.
My inventory is a bit low at the moment as I stocked my gallery spaces in Seattle and Astoria, Oregon. I will be adding new items to my online shop regularly through the first half of December, so be sure to check back and see what’s new.
