On the workbench this week.

Playing with copper and silver for new jewelry designs.


Copper with patina, silver star.

Jellyfish and starfish.

And a few hearts.


Copper + silver + flame – what more could a girl ask for?

The copper and silver will be incorporated with other elements and will become…

  1. Hi Kim, can’t wait to see what it becomes~ looks enticing!


    1. Hi Melissa, I was just thinking about you. I’m not completely sure of the final outcome either, but that often is the way I work. Even when I plan, plan, plan, in the end rarely is it what I thought it would be. I just have to roll with it. xo Kim

    1. Hello there famous Sofie, thanks for the compliments and for stopping by for a read. I need to come by one of these weekends and see you. Hope you are enjoying all the snow. 🙂


  3. Beautiful! Learning to make jewelry is on my “someday” list. 🙂


    1. Staci – Thank you for the kindess. We need to plan a bootcamp and teach other our trades. Maybe the coop girls would like to teach me chickens 101 too. 🙂

    I haven’t gotten to using flames yet…
    I LOVE your designs and colors!!!


    1. Thanks Debra. The flames can only burn you! Ha. When I first started working with glass, all those years ago, I was so afraid of getting cut. Which was so ridiculous, as I had worked with metal for years, welding and my plasma cutter to cut the metal. I got burns and cuts everyday – I don’t know why I thought a glass cut could be any worse. Sewing is certainly safer. I love learning new techniques, and I think you are the same way. We jump when we are ready. xo Kim
