This year the artists association that I am a part of, the Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre, has decided to display the works of it’s artists digitally on it’s website. You can check out my page here: Kimberly’s Jewelry in the Gallery.
They have put together a video where they sweep through all of the pieces in the gallery so you can peruse from your living room. That way you can drop by the gallery afterwards at your leisure to pick up the pieces that you liked. My jewelry is shown in the video at minute 3:51. Check out the video here.
This stone is also called the Tempest stone because of the swirling colors that resemble a storm. It’s a large oval measuring 31 mm x 22.5 mm. Set in a bezel with a Sterling top using the cuttlebone casting technique. To bring out the colors of the stone, I’ve soldered on three 14 kt gold balls as accents. Pietersite is said to help us keep centered on our spiritual being. Great to facilitate meditation, and to catch the eye! I’ve also soldered on a Gold accent on the bail that can accommodate a 3 mm chain. Price: $175.
In this pendant, I have combined several different colors together. The center stone, a large special open geode of crazy lace agate is topped with sterling silver pieces cast in a combination of using cuttlebone style and broom cast techniques. A small carnelian cab is bezel set in silver to pull the necklace beads and the pendant together. The necklace has a variety of jasper, faceted smokey quartz and metal beads strung with heavy tiger tail and finished with a sterling sliver toggle style clasp. Priced at $400.
