Cracked Amazonite cabachon while setting stone

There is nothing more frustrating than spending hours on a handmade sterling silver bezel than having the cabochon crack will you are setting it.  In retrospect I have no one to blame except myself. 

Lampwork Vine Necklace

This is one of my favorite necklaces, the Lampwork Vine Necklace. I have made it from sterling silver and lampwork beads. 

Fusing Sterling Silver

I spent some time today fusing sterling silver rings to make chain.  Fusing is a dance with fire.  You heat the silver waving the flame back and forth, watching and waiting until just the right moment.  You dance the flame back and forth and then, there it is!  It glistens and fuses.  There is an art to fusing.  Done too quickly and you links will fail to flow.  Done too long and you will melt the silver right in two.

One of my loves is walking on the beach scouring the shores for driftwood, sea glass, and shells.  I can spend hours walking and looking.  It seems as though each find is a treasure just waiting to be discovered.
