This is a bracelet I made several years ago, which I use as a sample for my chain making classes.  This is the simplest jump ring based chain, in my opinion.  These links are nickel silver, about 3/8″ in external diameter.  Including a small sterling silver lobster and a single larger ring for the clasp this 6″ bracelet is nice, simple example of good old fashioned jump ring linking.

I couldn’t resist these vintage earrings when I stumbled upon them in a Philadelphia thrift store.  I refinished the earring backs and gold plating, and added the flocking of the interior shapes.  These earrings remind me of the structure of columns.  They are approximately 1/2″ x 3/4″, with post backs.
