Metalsmithing Projects

Hello! I thought I'd share some of my projects from a metalsmithing class I took while I was in college. This is where I fell in love with jewelry making. Unfortunately, it was my final semester before graduating and I was unable to take any more classes.

The butterfly pendant has been in two different juried art shows in the past. It is sterling silver with a rainbow topaz stone. The other pendant was made with a process called lost-wax casting. And I believe the stone was amazonite. I just love the sculptural quality of this piece!
