Raven Tweaked....re-oxidized and new dangles

       Ok....i officially prefer Griffin's LOS to Midas....so i mixed the 2 together because my griffins has been acting weird....before that I re-worked his dangles....added tiny faceted thai fine silver cubes....that had become an archaeological relic on my basement bench.....I had come to terms with never using them until today....i thought I'd give them a try and surprisingly they worked better than the 2mm sterling silver beads.
Here are the new photo's. He is now officially shop ready! 
So much drama for one little bird!

  2. Susanna....the very first fabricated piece I made was a Dala Horse....i decided to keep it for myself. It's photo is in my etsy shop banner. It was so well received in an jewelry artist forum I participate in i decided to stick with the name...and thus my shop name Dala Horse. I am haplogroug U4.... indigenous european....according to national geographic genome DNA results....which has been identified as "Ulrike".

  13. Jess....nearly fell on my face when I saw your new comment...totally flattered...i have to resume working this week....had to overcome some major technical issues on 2 pieces on my bench (returning to using a charcoal block for soldering helped vs. a third hand) always crap when you least expect it. Then my tumbler start spinning on it's base...not to mention hand fashioning bezels for 2- 8mm cushion cut amethysts....what was i thinking. I find that when i get into rushing to finish mode everything becomes all the more fuitle. Great to see you on my blog!
