i have been having a blast with rivets! it seems the possibilities are endless. here are some pieces i made this week:
the "and then you win" necklace,
with laguna agate
the flower comes right up out of the stone and i fold-formed the leaves.
i need to find more stones with vugs...
first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win
i LOVE this piece!
the "in the arms of buffalo bill" ring,
with incredible vintage royston turquoise
one of the reasons i was so excited to learn how to do rivets is because i love the idea of kinetic jewelry, the kind that has movement. these flowers spin! i suspect that if you were wearing this ring, you would fidget with the flowers and spin them all day long.
as you know, i think that ian felice is the greatest songwriter of our time. this ring is about his song, in the arms of buffalo bill.
the "grace" necklace,
with glorious chrysoprase
and a tube riveted bail
and a sister "grace" ring
dainty and sweet
and a new resolve ring,
love this rose cut labradorite
all of these pieces will be in the shop tonight!
hope you are having an excellent weekend.
