14k gold fill wire wrapped lapis with 14k white gold leaf and white leather ties.
14k gold fill wire wrapped labradorites with 14k gold star and black leather ties.
my friend stacie gave me this stone pendant to do something with. since stacie is an artist with fun, creative style, i decided to make a kinda funky mixed metal chain for it. the chains are sterling silver, oxidized sterling silver, and 14k gold fill.
*stacie is a painter. she runs her own business here in L.A. check out: * sjm fine art & decorative painting.
*also, we went to high school together. here we are, circa '92, in stacie's moms kitchen. she's in the middle, i'm on the right. that's my schmacks baby kelly on the left.

i have been working on some stuff like this for awhile now. big, bubbly wire wrapped beads mixed with chains and 14k gold charms. (in this case vintage australian opals and a 14k gold hammered disk) if this looks ridiculously small to be a bracelet it is because i have ridiculously small wrists. i'm keeping this one too... i will be listing others soon in the shop. its sad the camera doesn't pick up the awesome colors and flash in the opals. opals rule.
its been awhile since i've made one of these... a vintage, 24k gold dipped sharks tooth hangs from sterling silver chain. i think i'm keepin' this one.
30 inch mixed metal necklace. silver and gold fill chain with vintage silver whistle, vintage red glass heart, 14k gold fill wired wrapped labradorites, sterling silver bells, and 14k gold star dangling from 14k gold fill chain. one of a kind...

a couple of days ago i woke up with a fraction of a dream, an image of a jar of pickles on the ledge of a bathtub. kelly was like "your pregnant!". ha ha. not happy with her interpretation, i dusted off my old trusty dream dictionary and breathed a sigh of relief. this is what it said: 'Overall satisfaction with the general state of your life, love, and pursuit of happiness is forecast in a dream featuring pickles.'* Yup.
*upon hearing this, kelly felt it was important to mention that my eyes are the color of pickles.
