 Here are some of my newest pieces.  They are all listed on my Etsy site.  The first one is actually a locket.  It opens and has a picture of an octopus attacking a ship and on the other side a picture of steampunk gears with one metal gear attached.  I put resin over the pictures to protect them.

This piece was featured in B'sue's news on her website.  It is a stack of metal flower pieces and a mix of colors.  there is a crystal bead in the center holding them together.  I used 3 chains on each side and ran a piece of silk ribbon up thru one of the chains.  I added a dangle at the bottom with amber colored beads.

I've been playing with polymer clay and having some fun with it.  This necklace in made from polymer clay and stamped with a Celtic design.  The larger beads are also poly clay and stamped.  I added copper colored plastic beads and some opal colored stone beads for color.  I made the piece on the main focal with a large pearl bead and some copper chain.

 This is a really simple piece.  The polished stone is a pretty yellow/gold color.  I added a gold leaf charm to the front and 2 gold circles to the chain.  Pretty fall colors.

This piece was an experiment.  I poured ICE resin into a mold that I had made.  Then I painted it with perm. inks and then sealed it.  It is attached to a square pendant.  I beaded the chain with green pearls and crystal beads.  I think it turned out very nice.
