Working at the bench in the last few days. I have been using carved ivory roses in my designs. These are so feminine and lovely! Here is my latest pendant, currently available in my Etsy-Shop handmade with fine and sterling silver. Oxidized (darkened) to bring out the creamy color of the ivory. A super high quality fresh water pearl adorns the end of the chain:

Brooch # 23! Yay… Feels so good to be past the half-way point.
The pale colors in this one are accentuated by the oxidized sterling silver! This one wears very comfortably.
A one of a kind pin featuring pale blue sea glass and a vintage carved bone rose. Nestled in a hand fabricated textured sterling silver bezel setting.
BAW52 # 15 is a lovely little copper “Vector” pin. I’ve placed a sterling silver rivet at “True North”. Always follow your heart to your own True-North!
I’m giving this one away with the purchase of any of my other BAW52 Brooches. All available pins are listed at Adobe Sol Designs.

I’m keeping a good pace on the brooches! BAW52 is so much fun. I look forward to what comes next. I just got in some really magnificent cabochons which will be my inspiration for the next pin!
Finished with 11 and 12. I’m super happy with the way each of them turned out.
#11 is made with sterling silver and faceted clear quartz stone. Still running on my “Shapes” inspiration, I designed it with a heart, ring and a freeform dangle at the bottom for interest:
#12 is one of my classic designs, that I love, featuring a MOP vintage button hand set in oxidized sterling silver.

The Weebly site is new to me, so if you have any questions, feedback or comments… I’m all ears. I’ve put together a FAQ page to help navigate through the purchase process.
Idea for Brooch #10: I am in the mood to make a brooch with “shapes”….

This just in my Etsy Shop…
A simple classic! This lovely pendant features a 6.5mm white, super lustrous, fresh water pearl. The simplicity of the oxidized (patinaed) sterling silver wire wrapping along with the handmade fine silver accents gives a feminine yet industrial look and texture. A design that never goes out of style.
