Wire Cross by claire109
Wire Cross
I took a spin at making a delicate little wire cross using a variation of a design I found on a tutorial.  For a first attempt I think it's good but I'd like to find a way to make a cross that has a gemstone set in the middle. again sorry for the poor photo quality. But I get my camera back this week so I should be good after that.

Malachite Pendant by claire109
Malachite Pendant
I cut this beautiful piece of malachite earlier this week and just had to wrap it up ASAP. I love the way it turned out.

Kyanite Blade pendant by claire109
Kyanite Blade pendant
I took the blade and cleaned it up a bit then added a soft polish to the front to make the blue stand out more.  I used a variation of my design from the tanzanite pendant but I like this one much better.  Unfortunately you can only view it sideways because for some reason it won't upload in its proper orientation.  Other than that sorry for the blur, camera is still down :P

labradorite rectangle pendant by claire109
labradorite rectangle pendant
not motivated to come up with an artsy name for this peice, though it probably deserves one.  This is the setting for the labradorite cab that I cut, which I posted a picture of right after I finished when it was unset.  I love the way this piece turned out and its such a beautiful peice of labradorite.

Crystal Forest by claire109
Crystal Forest
More artsy names haha.  I wanted something more nature-like without reverting to tree-of-life so for this pendant I went with some B-C quality green aventurine with some brown veining, and tried to create an avantgarde "leafy" or "viny" thing for the decor at the top.

Claire Kincaid
--Jeweler, Wire wrapper, Silversmith, Lapidary Artist, Pianist, Dancer, Taekwondo enthusiast, 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)
Interests
So its finally the holiday season, officially. No seriously. For real. I promise that halloween and thanksgiving are over, and now it is permissible to scream Ramahanquanzmas carols at the top of your lungs. Make sure you also celebrate festivus, its for the restofus.  But that cue also initiates the start of my gearing up for the holiday season (yay?) I do not, have never done, nor will ever do anything for black friday but I am making lots of pieces so look forward to some holiday season deviations! I sold my first piece of the season today at the Broadmoor-- here's to hoping it will be one of many.
  • Mood: Jolly
  • Listening to: carols (what else)
  • Eating: turkey leftovers *the best

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!
