I do other things too...

You would think that  the only thing I like to do it play with Fiber since that is about all I talk about. But believe it our not I have another passion and that is jewelry making. I do Beading, work with Precious Metal Clay (PMC) and Silversmithing. Every technique is different and a lot of fun.

Here are some photos of my PMC jewelry I created:
Hand Antiqued Fine Silver Double Sided Pendant and Flower with Vines Ring
Here is some of my beaded jewelry:
Jade, Fresh Water Pearls, Turquoise and Glass Czech Beads

I got to spend a little bit of time on the jewelers bench on Saturday and I made this ring:

Very simple and understated, just how I wanted it. I textured the band and made it a bit wavy to add interest and not be too plain. It came out exactly how I envisioned it.

I do not make jewelry as much because it is much harder to find the time. Is not like with knitting or crocheting that you can take those projects with you on the go. I did make myself a promise this weekend to spend more time making jewelry. I really enjoyed myself, it is wonderful taking a piece of metal and turning it into something beautiful.

Until next time, Happy Knitting Jewelry Making!
