Hello everyone! For this post I'm going to show you a simple way to create a cute ruffled edge on your jewelry designs. But first, I just have to share some of my favorite photos from a family trip to Arizona last month. Road trip anyone??

Ruffled Edge Treatment for Metal
What you will need:
Block of wood
Cross peen hammer
Just keep hammering your piece along the edge until you are finished! You can create different size ruffles on all four sides of the block, and use them for all different types of applications!
Unfortunately, I am not loving the earrings. I think because I was more focused on ceramics, I really didn't do my best on them. Oh well. The ceramics on the other hand, Wow! Our third batch turned out amazing!
Even hubby got involved. I am so proud of him! To be honest guys, he almost quit. He got so frustrated one day because he couldn't form the beads the way he wanted and threw them all over the studio! I held back from laughing and kept encouraging him. He is back on track, and looking to create more. Yay! I'm so excited he is involved and that we are learning ceramics together.
I should have all of these listed to my website here by the end of the week.
Thank you for reading!
