Working-Process Feng shui Globes

Let´s start to make 2 Feng shui globes ! It would be great to have somebody to take the pics, but then I might miss the silence to work I took them by myself. That will have to do.

So, you can try it on! .....seems to be out of your league!
But trust in me , anything will do at the end!

2nd version....
Ok! you must have a try too, of course!

No, you can´t keep on.... There is some work to do!

I know you both look a bit unhappy now.....but not much longer..... be continued.....

My aquablue Feng shui globe sold out yesterday, so I have to make some new!

I have arranged some beautiful glass globes in green, aqua and light blue.
..hope I will find time within the next days to solder silver wire around.
I will show the working process, so stay tuned if you are interested to see the development.

My treasury on Etsy Front Page

I spy with my little eye.....something that´s beautiful!
This was the title of my treasury, which made it to the Front Page today!
I hope it was helpful in making new favorits and sales!
I must say it feels almost better to see one I created on FP, than to be included....

work in progress : One of a kind rings

I use cut out sheet-silver pieces which are collected while crafting other silver jewelry.They are soldered on a band.

After cleaning, before filing and sanding .....and using the chamfer in places.....
then oxidizing... Next is to polish!
Each ring is unique, and by a fluke very nice details and textures appear!
