Irving and the Jasper

Like most "Rock hounds" I have collected tumbled polished nugget stones. For quite awhile I just looked at them, now I have a way to use undrilled polished stones, in wire wrapped settings..

This is Irving the Gargoyle... ( I love Gargoyles! and have a small collection) and after much cajoling he agreed to model some of my stuff.. but he certainly doesn't look very happy about it!

A red jasper in a 16ga copper wrap.

I am not very good at this type of wire setting as is evidenced in the gaps between the stone and the wire, but it is secure and I am working on finding the right colors of agate and jasper beads to make a necklace to hang this from.
Thanks Irving you're doing a heck of a job!

Happy Birthday! to Me :)

I haven't posted in awhile, I had a birthday and have been busy... Wow time flies when you're having fun! Worked on a new way I think of making a slip on bangle bracelet... it turned out rather nice I think but I have been tweaking with the design to enhance it..

A wonderful surreal Jasper focal bead and hand fashioned copper twisted tubes and copper donut beads. This has no clasp. Slip on!

Interested in having me make one for you? Email me! $25.00
