Copper Pendants and Some Vintage Love...

Things have been quite hectic for me lately. My daughter has been on spring break, I've been painting our porch (which has turned into a much larger project than originally anticipated...and is still not finished), and we spent a few days at my parents' house. There has not been much jewelry making going on this week.

This weekend we went to an absolutely HUGE rummage sale at an area high school. This was my 5th year in a row going to scour for bargains. I remember going with my mom when I was quite young. My husband is as much of a treasure hunter as I am, and we have so much fun picking through the goodies together. This year, we bought new directors chairs for my jewelry booth at local art shows. We also found some great wood plantation shutters that will be cut apart and made into barrette and brooch displays for my booth. I'm thinking that project may be a future "how-to" blog post.

Well, I did manage to whip off a few things this week...

copper artisan wire wrap scroll pendant

steampunk silver vintage skeleton key pendantThis last one is a keeper. The vintage skeleton key says Germany along the bottom of it, so, being as I was born in Germany, I simply had to keep it. Not to mention that amazing shimmery crystal. The ring that they are suspended from is the result of an afternoon spent with my trusty torch. I also made a ring for my lovely friend Mermaiden and considered posting a picture of that as well, but thought leaving it a secret would be much better!

Beautiful work, as always! I'm hoping for a bit of a reprieve myself. I'm hoping to have one day this week for literally doing nothing.

I love every single piece that arises out of your wonderfully vivid imagination. I must say that I think your Merlin's Mistress ring is one of my favorites. My father's name was Merlin ... and oddly enough,... my mother's name was Gwendolyn, a form of Guenevere.
You are truly blessed by the muses.
