evolving ...

I was speaking to my wonderful friend, a fellow Etsyian and highly talented metalsmith, howlindoggie, the other day, and I was telling her about how I'm totally hooked on vintage looking pieces now. She said my tastes/skills etc are evolving, which happens to almost all jewellery makers. It's a natural process every designer goes through - this need to experiment, change, evolve.

So seeing as how I'm in sync with vintage at the mo', I decided to experiment. I'm bringing vintage up a notch or two to where vintage meets zen. Here are my works-in-progress, they'll be turned into beautiful pendants shortly.

I love the effect produced by the juxtaposition of a pale and dark colour. What do you think?
