More work~! And a visit from Spain

"Trapped Bezel" pendant inspired by Richard Salley's technique. Amazonite, copper, brass. First time I made my own bead caps~~ They were inspired by Candie Cooper's new book "Metalworking 101 for Beaders".

Copper and brass and fine silver bezel strips. Dangles of quartz crystal.

Copper and brass and fine silver bezel strips stamped with "Smile" and "Shine". Fluorite dangles.

Well, I don't get to participate in the artist day at Studio 41...rats! But my work will be there without me. Hope it inspires and encourages. Love to sell a few pieces too .

My beautiful stepdaughter is here from Spain! She and her novio will be here for lunch today. Which means that DH and I are going to bless this house with some cleaning~~~ When you have two big black dogs and two orange marmalade cats, you have some serious animal fur at all times. And the left-over clutter from a crazy work'll be fun to clear this all out and feel clean and fresh~~

Bless you all...may your weekend be joyful!

Oh, these new pieces are so fabulous Chris! You are cranking them out now aren't you?
And, a visit from Spain sounds like so much fun. Especially if they come to visit AFTER you clean house =)
