My new pendants are flowers (rose, magnolia, calla lily) created from sterling silver sheet. They were sawed and soldered, and the petal edges burnished. Come see them at Sabai Jewelry Gallery in Baton Rouge, at the Baton Rouge Arts Market where they will make their debut the first Saturday of September, and at the 2015 Chimneyville show (Dec. 3, 4, 5) at the Trade Mart in Jackson, MS.
This necklace was started by my daughter in a college jewelry class but never finished. She had sawed out the piece and soldered the bail. But it only made it into a box of her unfinished pieces and has been long since forgotten. I found it recently and finished it with a stone I had that fit her bezel perfectly. I added the smaller bezel set gemstones (amethyst, her birthstone; opal, mine), handstamped it with a floral design, and scalloped the bezels around all of the stones to give the piece what I thought looked more “floral” to match my stampings. I etched both of our names on the back of the backplate as creators and designers and sent it to my daughter for a gift. She loves it.
Rocket into Space — my newest jasper and sterling silver bezel set pendant.

Pelicans — “must-haves” for Louisianians
Pierre Pelican is sterling but patinated to show his “true colors.” His fish and octopus relatives share the same techniques. The Man in the Moon pendant is also patinated and is bezel set in sterling.
