Working on a little box clasp. A lovely component to a statement bracelet but fussy to finish. Lots of sanding, fiddling, sanding, fiddling.... but when you hear that click of the tongue - VICTORY!
New Ring Boxes
We have long wanted to add some non-jewelry accessory items to our repertoire. I'm so happy to introduce this little ring box as our first prototype of some new ring boxes to come shortly. Bill has long been a talented wood turner before I lured him into the world of glass. He has been making pens for graduations and retirements, boxes, bowls and more. It is a waste of his talents not to incorporate some of this into our work. Right now, these little ring boxes are the perfect companion to what we are currently doing. Our little prototype is made from cured hickory from our property. I am adding my glass hearts to the lid and loving the combination of wood and glass. I also have some wood bangle bracelets on my bench, waiting for some silver embellishments. It is all part of many new things we are working on for the coming year. These few winter months without shows are critical for some time to tinker and think.
