New Necklace!

WOW isn't that a catchy title, NOT!! Well I have been a little more active with making stuff lately and managed to make a necklace with matching earrings(sort of), and a pendant for a swap. Can't show you the pendant yet because it has to be seen by the recipient first but I will put a photo in when it has been received by the person and when I get mine.
But here is the necklace and earrings. I am not sure on this, I think the chain is too chunky. Argentium Silver, Sterling Silver, Labradorite, Smoky Quartz, and Apatite. All the wire is argentium all the other is sterling.

Thanks for having a look. Catch you again soon!!!

Ciao for now!!!

Swap time

Wow has it really been that long since my last post???!!!
Any way not much has been happening, booked our holiday to Japan which is now only 22 days away....YIIIPPPPEEEE
I recently took part in an earring swap on the Creative Wire Jewelry Forum for Valentines day. My swap partner was Dyan(Varuamoon)in the US and here are the earrings I made for her....
Argentium Silver, Green Agate(beautiful velvety green)and freshwater pearl.

Then the call went out for angels for people that didn't get something from their designated swap partner for any number of reasons. I was priveleged to get Carolyn(Cas) from here in Australia. So I got the wire out and whipped up another pair and here they are....
Sterling Silver, Argentium Silver, Apatite, Aquamarine, and Freshwater pearl

So what did I receive and who sent them?
These little stunners from Magdalena Borejko(her links are to the side in my favourites) Oxidised silver, Rubies, Spinels and Madeira Citrines.....

Thanks for having a look and I hope it wont be so long before my next post.
Ciao for now!!!
