I spent some time in the metals studio last week and finally finished up some casting pieces I have been working on since my class ended. I experimented with a bunch of different techniques, but the crystals were my favorite project. I hand carved them out of wax to look like real crystals and then cast them into bronze. I am not sure what I am going to do with them yet, but I made one necklace for myself and one for the shop update this week. I am also thinking about trying them with the braided cord. More details below...

The shop update is going to be on Wednesday, Feb. 10th at 8pm (CST). There is going to be a few short and long hand cast necklaces, one cast crystal necklace, a couple of braided necklaces, and an assortment of woven bracelets. This update is going to be a little small, but I am planning a bigger one for next week. Check back later for the outfit post I put together with the new necklaces.
