Labradorite Coffin Bangle
For Sale: www.etsy.com/listing/603543200…


I carved the Victorian-style box setting for this Sterling silver Gothic bangle from 999 pure silver metal clay and set it with a rainbow Labradorite. The handmade bezel has a pattern of circles and points along the side, reminiscent of a wrought iron fence. A crescent moon etching and 999 purity mark adorn the back.

The labradorite is dark green-gray with black striations and a unique yellow-purple flash when light rolls over the surface. It looks a little more orange-purple in indoor light, a little more green-yellow in sunlight. The colors remind me of a beautiful autumn sunset.

The stone setting measures 35mm (just over 1.25 inches) from loop to loop and the 925 Sterling bangle measures a thick 3.2mm round.

More info and photos are available in its Etsy listing.

Work in Progress of Sterling Renaissance Pendant
For Sale: www.etsy.com/listing/551379970…


The left (white) is a work-in-progress shot of my Sterling Renaissance Pendant, made with Art Clay Silver. Here, it just came out of the kiln and has that lovely soft white powder look pure silver gets after firing. The right (black) is after polishing, oxidizing with Liver of Sulfur, and setting the stones.

The body of this pendant is 999 pure silver with a 925 Sterling fancy gallery bezel and Sterling chains. The checker cut oval and briolette are natural purple amethyst.

Pendant measures 43x36mm and comes on a 2.3mm wide rouble rolo chain.

Gothic Garnet Angel Ring
For Sale: www.etsy.com/listing/515330924…


Two little putti lift a rose cut garnet in this Renaissance-inspired ring. The gorgeous gem is deep, rich red with lots of sparkle and glitter.

The angelic setting was cast from a 1920s original, carefully reproducing all its details in solid Sterling silver. Both figures are three-dimensional, with fully rendered backs on the inside of the ring. The band is euro shank (slightly squared at the bottom) to prevent spinning and keep the stone pointed up.

The setting measures 8mm across at the front and tapers down to a sturdy 3mm wide in the back. The highest part of the setting sits up 8mm high from the finger. Size 7.75

Two weeks ago my water heater burst. Water, which is drawn to books and electronics, naturally found its way to my office and started building a pond colony in the carpet.

Thankfully, I was able to rescue my computer and precious books before serious damage was done. However, full eradication of the pond took about a week - which made for an interesting experience of running my Etsy shop out of an upside-down pile of stacked desks on an iPad with a filing cabinet over my head. Completing orders was made doubly complicated by remembering exactly where everything was in the now empty office and searching for its new home amongst the piles of stacked chairs and book forts.

Unfortunately, all this adventure prevented me from making new pieces or editing new photos.

But now I'm back! My glorious office is now as dry as California, freshly painted, and restocked with all my jewelry goodies. Regular updates should resume in the next few days.

In the meantime, you can see all my current work and view my vintage stock on Etsy: www.etsy.com/shop/gothicglitte…
