Chasca's Opal

This creation has a definite Incan feel.  Perhaps a priestess of Chasca the Incan Goddess of dawn and twilight wore a similar opal.  How fitting since this beautiful double strand necklace is made up of wonderful pinks that I see during an awe inspiring sunset or sunrise and black like the night that is to follow.  The gemstones and precious metals have been sitting in my studio for months.  Finally they called to me.  I simply love this gorgeous Peruvian Opal teardrop, showcased perfectly by the Rhodonite, Black Tourmaline and Sterling Silver.

Howlite Encircling The Eye of Horus

Howlite is such a wonderful stone.  I just love working with it, wearing it, simply touching this this calming stone. This wonderful stone brings self-awareness, increases creativity along with improving emotions attitudes.  So another creation came into being tonight melding this wonderful stone with my Eye of Horus enchantment!!

Wire Wrapped Up

I have really wanted to incorporate wire wrapping with my metal clay and gemstones so I have been experimenting with wire wrapping for awhile now.  I had comical and Frankensteinean  results so I finally broke down and took a class.  Two of the simplest techniques made all the difference.  My second attempt is below - not too bad if I do say so myself, so more practice and the ideas swirling in my head become reality!!

Horus sees All

More Eye of Horus creations.  This lovely necklace is made with carnelian gemstones, copper beads and findings with the Eye of Horus pendant formed from copper poly clay.  Horus is at every turn right now, seeing all and lending his protection.
