Well- I am in show prep mode once again, but this time it's jewelry shows! Each year to try to find a new direction to go in, just a little bit. I have been very drawn to ancient, tribal, ethnic looking items lately. So I wanted to add some brass to my jewelry line. I have used it a little bit here and there, like in these Boho Hoop style earrings last year.
Brass Boho Hoops
I was never really a fan of gold, and yet, somehow, I am now being drawn to the richness of this golden yellow metal.
Along with adding brass this year, I started to make some of my own chains for charm style necklaces. Yesterday, I finally completed one, so I am sharing it with you, since it is all I have worked on for a couple days!!!!
I really like the results of both the chunky chain charm style and the richness of the brass. I will certainly be making more!!!! I think that the brass also begs for color to be added, and so, I am beginning to add more pops of color to my work. Always evolving. Not sure if its a process or just because I get bored easily! Either way, it keeps things fresh.
What is your favorite metal to work with?
Is there a metal you have been wanting to try, but just haven't done it yet?
