New jewels

I put some new fancy jewels in the shop today. First up is Marie Antoinette, before and after. I am very pleased with how these pendants came out (and I'm still giggling over them). I glazed them in a style that was keeping with the antique/French vibe. I'm also quite thrilled with the new sterling silver chains that I oxidized. They came out very peacock in coloration which is pretty darn pretty.

This school of horses also made their way into the shop today. Seahorses, that is. I'm in love with these guys!

I listed the green one but you actually get to choose which color sets your heart aflutter. What color are seahorses, incidentally?

The final new design is a lovely open oval. It's a bit like wearing a picture frame on a chain, only it's tiny, and pretty, and people will be inclined to say "oh my! What a unique and wonderful necklace! You are too cool for words!" :)

The Maries make me giggle, the sea horse makes me want summer, and the oval is fab.

I am in love with the frame...juicy color I want to bite right into! And seahorses? Well, the one that I got a picture of was a brilliant orange in color with feathery sort of fins all around. Love these! Enjoy the day! Erin

Love, love, love! I have the Marie pendant in gold but I never thought of molding it. Thanks for the great ideas! I would buy one of yours but you must have sold out already. No surprise there, they are DARLING!
