I dug out these cast pistachio shell earrings for my shoot last week.  I forgot how much I like them, and was glad to have this nice image taken by Joe Baran (  These were cast, then soldered to custom earwire.  They hang about 2″ down from the ear.  The entire piece is sterling silver.  I love the texture on them, and really ought to polish them back up again.


Sneak Preview!

Last week I had a blast filming a new online class for a company called Sympoz (  Eventually, my jewelry class will be posted on Sympoz’s new website for crafts classes.  If you want, I’ll teach you pearl knotting, wire wrapping, chain making and….photo etching!  Here are some shots that our rockstar cinematographer Joe Baran took of sample work for the class (note I’ll be updating earlier posts on this blog and my Etsy with more of Joe’s stellar shots).  More of Joe’s work at his website  I guess you’ll just have to wait for the class premier to see more of my work 🙂

Shark Teeth Earrings

I sent along the shark teeth necklace, and now, as a birthday gift I’ve made these matching shark teeth earrings.  I hope they’re loved!  They’re just wire wrapped with sterling silver and fresh water pearls, with hinged earwire for stability.  Each earring is about 1/2″ in length, and 1/3″ wide.  I was happy to find two teeth that matched so well – lucky!
