Freeform with green chrysocolla by DPBJewelry Freeform with green chrysocolla by DPBJewelry
This is the first freeform I've made in a while. It features one of the chrysocolla cabs I got from the find of the century at a local thrift shop (check out my journal and gallery for the whole story). This portion of the slab was a lovely soft green, more like variscite or amazonite than chrysocolla, but having seen the full slab, I'm sure of its identity. The choker sits right at the sternal notch (top of the breastbone) and I just love it. The wire is square 18g with 22g half round to bind it, 14k gold fill.

That's awesome. I like that snakey effect of the wire on the stone.

Thanks. Trying to get a few more of these done before next weekend. Last show before Christmas. Praying for some desperate last minute shoppers!!! Hope your shoppers are behaving. Only three weeks to go!

I know, it's like I want sales to be slow at work, but instead they were slow at my shows and nonexistant online! Hope you get a good rush of pleasant people!

I still haven't had any luck at all with online sales. Hope that changes for us both soon.

Getting more visits lately. 130 visitors today, 160 yesterday,but still no on-line sales. Real life sale tomorrow and Saturday. Hope things pick up. Sales at my office have been decent though. Hope that continues thru Christmas and after (people buying what they really want!).

Kind of a slow weekend, low turnout, but a few good sales. Enough to cover my last wire purchase and then some. Like most shows, not as good as I'd hoped but better than expected, and got a couple of commissions out of it, including a commission to do ammolite earrings to go with [link] Even better, I checked with Dale Penrod and he has the cabs to match! Oh, HAPPY, HAPPY dance!
