Stepping it up a notch.

I’ve been making a lot of bracelets in my, step it up a notch, campaign 🙂

But first, look at this beautiful stone.


Agua Nueva.

Such a beautiful colour.

I made it some links, and included some pearls.

The grey ones are my favourite, although I do keep trying to like the other ones – honest.


Soon, maybe today, I’m going to make the same bracelet without the focal setting as I think it will make a nice simple piece of jewelry.


Below is another piece of Ocean Jasper this time with a simple chain.


I never used to like Ocean Jasper, but I think that might have changed.


Because recently I seem to be using it a lot.


Again with the grey pearls and that strange little acai nut thing.


I’ve also been working on how the bracelets fit and seem to be getting better at that.

Now I’m on to earrings…


This is Laguna Lace Agate.

Other than that I’m still practicing for my operatic career while I’m in the shower.

I get a little light-headed when I try to hit the high notes, but other than that I think it’s going pretty well.

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Especially the Agua Nueva one. The detail is just amazing! Cecilia Robinson

    • I really like the aqua nueva stone, especially this purple/lavender one. I might have to go hunting for more, but then I am banned from buying any more cabochons for the rest of my life.

  3. i just love your work- the cut out design on the back side is so unique! i will have to try that myself-i am getting braver in my silver soldering work so onward-you inspire me

  4. While I adore everything you have made, these designs are stepped up more than a notch!!! I giggled at what you call simple chain – oh my, I love that!!!! It is all in the details – and there are some awesome details on this page alone!

  5. Really beautiful work. You have inspired me. I have been trying to do what I call, “make better work this year, and “stop the lameness”…but think I will start calling it, “step it up a notch campaign”. It just sounds like a heck of a lot more fun.
