After a nice holiday break, I am back in the studio and loving every minute of it. It's nice to take a creative pause, to let my mind and body rest and allow ideas and inspiration to come naturally. Then, when I step back into the studio, I am excited and energized to dive right into new projects.
During break, I brainstormed new ways to bring personalized jewelry options to my customers, and I really like what I have created so far! Drum roll please.....I'd like to introduce the Gold Bronze Flower Earrings and Birthstone Pendant Necklace.
These petite flower motifs are made using Gold Bronze metal clay. I cut and shape the flowers, use a mold to create the dome center and fire them in my kiln. Once they come out of the kiln, I use hand tools to buff the metal, which gives it that low luster finish!
To make the pendant necklace, I take two domed flowers, place a cultured gemstone between the two pieces and use more metal clay to adjoin the two sides together. Once the pendant is formed, I put it back in the kiln to solidify the metal, making it a completely enclosed pendant.
You choose the birthstone for a personalized gift (for yourself!) or someone you love!
Like the flower motif you saw today? It's an LPDstudios signature motif, and you can find it on handbags, cuffs, and leather earrings. Keep stopping by the blog to see what else is new in the studio :)
