The last few weeks have been exhausting! I have so much to tell that I have a hard time knowing where to start. Of course no matter how busy I get in order to stay sane I simply have to stop to make jewelry along the way. It’s my therapy, my ‘me time’, and I am a much kinder and gentler person when I take that time out. 🙂 Recently I have really been having a LOT of fun with Viking Knit. I took a few pictures to share with you. If your interested in learning to create your own Viking Knit bracelets, be sure to catch my Workshop in June.

Beautiful Bronze with Seashell and Pearl
Not only have I enjoyed playing with Viking Knit, but I’ve also made some of my signature Wire Sampler Bracelets as well. In the past I have made these exclusively in copper, but decided to venture into other metals. Here is my first Silver Wire Sampler bracelet. I chose to keep it shiny rather than oxidize – a departure from the usual for me. 🙂 This piece contains, carved bone, Quartz, Magnesite, Coral, and a beautiful ammonite fossil.
My first Wire Sampler in Gold; carved bone, magnesite, quartz, tiny freshwater pearls, spiral seashell.
And Finally, this lovely little spiral shell sterling silver herringbone bracelet – one of my favorites! I had to make two of these, one to keep and one to share. ;0)
