Here is part two of some of the pieces I have worked on. I really need to make time to do this more often. I promised my friend Jill that I would bring my jewelry making stuff next time I popped in to visit and I kept my word. Best atmosphere ever! Don't judge me, Michalob Ultra is awesome!
I prefer to work with Sterling silver. I used up all the findings I had on this day. Jill had some beautiful pieces I was able to turn into pendants. We didn't know for sure, but most of them looked like sliced agate pendants in various colors. Immediately, I was in love.....
I had plenty of silver plated chains and leather cords for necklaces so we were in business.
The pendants came with holes already drilled, I just needed to have findings and cord necklaces with clasps. Thanks again to Jill because these pieces are gorgeous!
I took a moment to separate new onyx, soapstone and agates beads for earrings or possible bracelets. Yes and everything below I made.....
Work in progress......
This pair below has agate, onyx and soapstone beads. Onyx is the ultimate protection stone and it matches everything. They say soapstone is great for the skin.
This is spotted onyx and Sterling silver findings.....below is onyx with an unknown stone my step mom sent me. I love these beads,,,,,you can wear them with animal print.....
Below is onyx with dyed turquoise. ( code for fake turquoise. Hahahaha)

Onyx and dyed jasper.
This pendant below were more beads from my step mom when she made jewelry. Jill saw this and was like, wow, I like that one. I thought! Okay let's make a necklace for each one!
Citrine and peridot are two of my favorite stones.... The citrine were two lone beads that needed to be earrings....
