Finally got the rest back from my mom and finished up one that I was working on. First, is a blue and orange pendants (yes orange and blue again!) The blue is a piece of copper that I enameled and riveted an enameled orange flower to it.

My first piece was inspired by the amazing focal, I love using fiber in my designs and felt that the unique copper clasp could not be hidden in the back. The copper beads between the blue ceramics ones are from my NYC stash and are from the 1940's or 50's.
Not sure why I could not get the piece rotated the right way. Here is another view.
Next I worked on some earrings, I really like how these came out. The wire are handmade, it is something I can do sitting by the pool!
I've been a blue mood this summer, making lots of blue jewelry. I guess I am inspired by the blue sky, the blue water and my blue hydranga that I have in my front yard. So using the orange components was quite a challenge, so I went back to my favorite blue and combined it with the orange. I enameled copper pieces, stacked them and added the orange beads to complete the look.
I do not have a picture of my final pieces, my mom borrowed them to wear one day and I have to get them back! She does this all the time. I'll post the pictures as soon as I can.
Enjoy the blog hopping!
