studio news - silver disc earstuds

 Post earrings, silver textured and blackened.









 to polish after oxidizing I use powder - made by rasping a pumice stone which I brought from Santorini many years ago. This procedure makes a beautiful, mat surface.
these raw ear dangles are available in my etsy shop Wandsilber

reduction of the bead collection!

.....is the need of the hour!
 as you can plainly see - i loved to collect all turquoise and coral colors, it is a favorite combination. 

         


                                 







silver scrap also needs reduction, so I melted some in the charcoal, after cleaning and drilling they will be spacer beads.

 the new necklaces.....to be found here


 ......and this is what they look like after 10 years!
this is mine, worn very often. The patina makes it even more beautiful.

good old blog....good old Etsy...

times are changing at speed, and many new social media sites are claiming attention!
also the world of online business  is changing.
The german seller platform Dawanda runs down its business, and this means the end of my Dawanda shop too!

But every cloud has a silver lining, and so I it´s time to focus on my Etsy shop again. There is a german and english version, chose yours!





Also I decided to pay more attention to my blogging ,  which faded into the background over the time. 
Instagram, Facebook, have pushed themselves to the fore, but actually I always loved to show some studio stories more detailed.

So stay tuned for more blogposts next time again (at least it´s on my agenda)
