All About Brass!

My foray into designing with brass

For the most part I've stayed within the confines of designing jewelry with precious metals and semi-precious gemstones, and while they make for beautiful creations, I've had an itch to move into other mediums. Having used a bit of copper, I already knew what a big difference the rich, warm hues of alternative metals can make. Recently, I ran across some focals that gave me the perfect opportunity to work with brass!

** Secret Garden - Book Locket Pendant with Aquamarine and Pearl


Fiori - Venetian Glass Earrings, clad in 24kt Gold Foil


Antiquity - Lampwork & African Turquois


Lilacs - Softest shade of dusty mauve in frosted glass melons and Czech glass edged with a beautiful patina


An amazing electroformed lampwork focal. Both brass and copper chain were used to show it off to it's best advantage.
