More in the series

janice fowler metalsmith, ring, series, sterling silverIts still going strong! YAY!

I've made another bangle in the 'lines' series. Its almost identical to one I posted recently, the thinner bangle with the lines all the way around.

AND I made a new ring - quite different from the other one. The photo to the left is snapped quickly at work - no lightbox or anything. And my camera battery went dead so no picture of the shank. I am not thrilled with the shank - on a different ring, yes. On this ring, no. So I may haeve to keep this or maybe I'll offer it up and just see what happens!

I have two more pieces ALMOST done - one is a pendant with lines and the other is a ring with a nod to the lines, but not the same. Both pieces have a charoite stone in them. I hope to have them later tonight.

Now that I'm really getting some work out there for consumption it really has hit me that I MUST figure out packaging and inserts and whatever else I need when I actually sell something. OY. I have some small jewelry boxes - REALLY inexpensive. They are green which coincides with my color scheme on the website. I think I am going to make labels with my business name on them and a muted purple border - to match the other color on my website - and place one on each box top. I may use a string or ribbon to tie them shut.....not sure. And I am thinking about a logo - I don't have one and am not even sure what I would want it to look like. Oy.

Thanks for all the feedback and well wishes so far everyone! I appreciate everyone who reads here and for the comments, emails, etc. ((hugs))
