Taking a break from the Geisha this week, she’ll be back next week when I’ll show you the 2nd in the series – the neck (a little insider note – it is my favorite of the 3 🙂 ).

This week is focused on another project from the past few months – a boatload of jewelery!  The summer sun was just too delicious to not enjoy, so I tried to work outside as much as possible.  But lugging loads of tile in and out of the house each day isn’t ideal.  So I picked some smaller stuff to work on that was easily transportable.

Only intended to make a few rings and a couple cufflinks – but got going and couldn’t stop.  The end result of the project yeilded 34 rings, 12 pairs of cufflinks and 4 new necklaces!

Making mosaic jewelry isn’t my main focus – but I really enjoy doing it.  It is a fun challenge to work in a small space and see what can happen.  It is also a quick little satisfying hit, they don’t take weeks to finish like a wall piece can.  Plus – it is fun to play with jewelery.  😀

Some “in-progress” pictures as well as a few final pictures are below.  I’m not putting in final pics of all 50 pieces, but they are getting uploaded onto the main website in a couple weeks so you’ll be able to see the rest over there soon.  Now to figure out what to do with them all!
