I’m Just So Excited!

My New Pendant!

So yesterday as I was driving into work, I started planning my day….what I’m doing at work, and how ’bout dinner, and do I really want to exercise tonight, and oh, I really feel like doing my pendant tonight! So, the day progressed and my plan was set! Stop by my new favorite don’t feel like cooking place (Panda Express), right on the way home from work. For fast food, it’s really, good! And, no dishes and no exercise and workshop, here I come!

Mike couldn’t wait to have a workbench downstairs, so he got a beautiful bench! Well, it started out, his workbench was built and soon filled with clock parts and all the things he wants to putter with! Then,  I moved my jewelry bench in there (how fun, we can work on things together).  Mine was a small art table that I used to work on in one of the bedrooms. And I moved my little cabinet  with drawers in there to to brighten up the place, not much for dreary!  My little cabinet has heart boxes, cute little framed quotes (“let all that you do be done in love”, “Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Dream, Today is what counts”) and a cute Grinch ornament….to cute to put away,  and E-T nightlight, a teeny little box filled with worry dolls from my daughter, and I’m sure a few more things too! Well, my gemstone collection grew, my interest in my craft expanded, Mike bought me more tools and well I now have 4 workbenches in Mikes workshop! tee hee hee!

So, back to yesterday! Dinner was through,  Mike was sitting in his favorite chair, feet up, browsing on his MacBook and I retreated to the workshop. I got all the necessary tools out, and then the gemstones! That’s when it all happened. I placed the first gemstone in the bezel, ran out to the family room, oh Mike look! I get so excited! I must admit, I can’t stay seated long without expressing myself! But, eventually I finished. I was SO EXCITED! So, first I made a leather necklace, no, didn’t work, I thought for sure it would, but no! Then, the sterling silver snake chain, perfect!

So, I picked a pretty little jewelry case, packed up my pendant and protected it with nice soft cotton pads, and placed it in my workbag. The girls at work, are quite supportive and interested in what I’m doing. So, of course I showed the girls at work today. Then I thought, hmmm, I want to show all of you this. It’s not often I make myself something first, but the first three metalsmithing projects I have done, I have kept myself! I always like to perfect things a little bit before I offer them to others. So, pretty soon, I will be adding pieces that I will post in my Etsy shop!

So, this has been fun making and just a taste of so many things I’m dreaming up in my head that I am SO EXCITED ABOUT!

ABOUT THE PENDANT: The pendant’s gemstones are: the large cabochon is a Ruby Zoisite,  (Ruby Zoisite is said to amplify the entire energy field of the body, which helps us to realize and reach our potential) and the two small cabochons are round Rubies!  I set the gemstones in a high walled bezel in a thick piece of sterling. I soldered the two pieces together with thick sterling bent wire. To add some interest to the bottom gemstone piece, I curled the bottom of the sterling. I love the results. Do you? Let me know your thoughts!

So, visit my Etsy shop and look at some of my other creations.
