My jewelry items are wonderful for one-of-a-kind gift items, especially in the fall and winter months. And I've been working on commissioned items as well, so if you have an idea you think I can tackle, let me know. There's still some time for Halloween jewelry in the spirit of the season or for your costume.
One of the new series that I love and would like to expand on is the Cathedral series under the Elysia series, which integrates filigree wrapping and bright czech glass buttons that remind me of rose windows. I've actually had these buttons for over a year, fighting with glue to make them work with the filigree, but they just didn't work because they were too big and the filigree wasn't flat (less surface area to glue). I was ecstatic when I realized that I could wrap the filigree around them for a solid hold that would display the buttons beautifully. As soon as I have the capital, I hope to expand on the Cathedral series beyond the six pieces I have now. Basically, my Cathedral series and some of the other filigree-wrapped items are what I've been wanting to make since the beginning.
The second series I've begun is the Apocalypse series under the Bountiful Winepress. I figure I might as well take my fear by the horns and make something beautiful and dark with it. I'm not entirely positive where I'm going with it, but I've got a good start with the Apocalypse at Sunset necklace (below) and The Beast Falls necklace.
Below are some of my new Cathedral pieces and gothic and Halloween pieces from the last wave of jewelry.
