I am pleased to say that Fade to Jade has found a new home and that I received many compliments on it. Thank you!
So here we are, finally at the end of another big snowstorm. What an incredible winter this has been! The good news for me is that I've been able to spend a lot of time at my bench finishing off pieces that were waiting for inspiration. This is my latest: Silver Shadow.
It started off with a wonderful Sterling and turquoise antique orphan earring that I found in a jam-packed curio shop in Round Pond, Maine.
The back-plate is a beautifully antiqued piece of nickel and silver which I torched to obtain the charcoal grey luster. I polished and textured the edges to bring back a touch of the silver and then added some Sterling accents and a toggle clasp.
I confess I have worn this several times, to test it out :), and it looks great on a light colored sweater.
The necklace is $200. (Three inches long, 1 1/8 inch wide.)
