I like to work on more than just plugs. I also like to more than just wood, although that is my main medium. Let's take a step back from this term of "organic jewelry" and look at some of the newer ideas going on here. Since I began school in March, ideas are swimming through my head at a rate that I can't even keep up with them. One project that evolved from that stream is a matching set of brass weights. Each one weighs 48 grams and has an acid etched spider web type design on the face. These are (painstakingly) hand cut from an 8 gauge sheet, filed, sanded, and drawn on with an acid resist. I buffed these to have a mirror finish. So much that you can see my hands reflecting off the surface when I took the picture. These are for sale. If anyone is interested, please do let me know.
I have also made several bracelets using acid etching techniques. I will be taking custom orders on these. The ones pictured are not available, but I can do similar ones. Each design is hand drawn on. Every design is freestyle, making each one unique.
Here is a stainless steel one made with the same techniques.
This patina copper one is available. It is a little larger than the others, measuring at 6-1/2 inch long and 1-1/2 inch wide. Message me if you are interested.
Standard sizing on the bracelets is 1 inch wide by 6 inches long. They are made from 26 gauge spring hard metal and hand shaped. They can fit a whole range of wrist sizes, although I can make them smaller or larger. Prices are as follows (in standard sizing) -brass or copper $25 plus shipping. These can be sprayed with matte or glossy clear coat to protect oxidation. If you want the oxidation, I can leave them naked or rub a paste wax on. -stainless steel is $35 plus shipping. These get buffed to have the mirror surface on the design, but the background remains dull. These will pop out. Back to what I am known for... my plugs.. Well I will have more stuff to post in the next blog, but I wanted to offer up some new gems that I just picked up. Along with what's pictured I also picked have some 2 mm white, black, lavender, champagne, and amethyst colored czs. Click on the picture for sizes and descriptions of the stones.
Next blog I will get back to the plugs. I have a wholesale order of tears that were made for modify in australia, along with some other hanging styles and new wood types. Keep an eye on the happenings here. Easy, Mark
