Inksteresting... so now we have statuses... like facebook... hmm.....
Well it's certainly less hassle than writing a whole journal :P Ok then I will embrace the status updates!  In other news, my camera is down and my photobox is on lend to a friend, so I'm without all of my photo equipment-- which is why all of my recent deviations have been pictures taken with my phone! (yay?) at least my phone's camera rocks.  So I can live with it, for now.
Mom's birthday present by claire109
Mom's birthday present
earrings.  I made a slightly edited, better version of the design for my chrysoprase earrings for TGA except with some nice monochromatic agate pieces this time for my mom's birthday present. Still functioning without photo equipment right now, so sorry about the weird background and stuff. at least its not blurry :P
Chrysocolla (?) Pendant by claire109
Chrysocolla (?) Pendant
Another pendant made for TGA.  I like this one because it's so simple, but if you look carefully the double setting on the sides gives it a hint of intricacy while still maintaining the focus on the stone itself.  Speaking of the stone, I have honestly no idea what it is.  We had to classify it as something at work, so we arbitrarily picked chrysocolla because it appears similar to some specimens we've seen, and many people haven't even heard of chrysocolla so it's not like they're going to be able to tell the difference.  However, if you do know what stone this is, please tell me in the comments or message me so that I can classify it correctly.  Wrapped in .925 sterling silver and currently at home in the jewelry case of The Gilded Artisan.
Coral and Jade Pendant by claire109
Coral and Jade Pendant
Another Piece for TGA. I normally never use epoxy on my pieces but I loved the look of the suspended beads I was able to accomplish with the epoxy.  No worries, its completely secure and in no danger of falling apart.  The rose is carved coral and the beads are nephrite jade, all wrapped up nice and tight with sterling silver.  Sorry for the poor picture quality, I'm temporarily operating without my photobox :P

--Jeweler, Wire wrapper, Silversmith, Lapidary Artist, Pianist, Engineer-in-Training, Entrepreneur, Problem solver, Self-professed over-motivated weirdo.
--Super nerdy 16 year old high school graduate with way too much time on her hands. Taking a gap year before heading off to college (because no one wants a 16 year old room mate) to study mechanical engineering.
--In the mean time, I take online classes, pursue piano and guitar (the former of which I have played for almost 14 years, the latter of which I just started), Speak random Japanese, ballroom dance, read, sew, paint, and travel. I cut my own cabochons which I then wrap in .925 sterling silver wire to sell to the general populace. Occasionally I dabble in beading, chainmail, and silversmithy, but not often due to my general lack of funds and patience.
--Two strange facts about myself--
1.) I have lived in 9 places and gone to 8 schools since I was born, not counting college.
2.) I have a giant list of skills and artisan crafts I want to learn before I die-- including but not limited to, blacksmithy, faceting, salsa, business law, german, carpentry, shotokan, (the list goes on)
So, not only do I have a job at a mineral gallery, I have an apprenticeship/job at a custom jeweler's in town!! AND I'm growing my business (which is great) and I'll be making an appearance with my wire wrapping at the mini maker's faire at a local library in town in about two weeks.  I AM SO EXCITED. There's a long list of things that are just going really well, but because I've been so focused on getting my life in order, 2 things have not gotten done recently: classwork and jewelry making omfg .  I've made a couple new pieces but not as many as I'd like. BUT since I just got a huge crop of commissions all that is about to change (cue ominous evil laugh)Devil  and I'm in the middle of ordering a bunch of new wire and doing a bunch of paperwork online like emails and finances :PWriting Emote - NaNo5 typerhappy Kaoani Computer monster OMG MOAR POEMS!  So wish me luck internet! and of course, I'll be back real soon :)

You make some absolutely brilliant jewellery! And I am not usually one to go crazy over such things ;) But I found at least three items in your gallery, that I would have bought if I had come across them!
Keep it up! You are brilliantly talented!
