Using Less Sterling Silver...

I had a long discussion with myself 
the other day, concerning metals
It is obvious that silver is becoming a 
really expensive metal.. 
And each time I buy silver I m 
becoming more and more reluctant
 about using it. 
So, I m looking at it on my work 
bench and bang! thoughts like these pop :

I will create a big statement piece!...
No no will be really expensive... 
No no, I d rather make sth small, 
sth for everyday, sth that will not be expensive about making a pair of earrings? 
No, no I better make a pendant first

And these thoughts take a lot of my 
design-making jewelry time.
Plus, they make me feel less creative..
and I don't like that.

So, I have decided to use more Brass 
and Copper in my designs.
I will still use Sterling of course, 
but in smaller pieces
except for Custom Orders J

3 years ago

This day, 3 years ago, my heart was broken.
My heart was cut into pieces.
The world as I knew it, would never be the same again.
I would never be the same again.
This day, 3 years ago, my eyes were swollen 
and my voice was raw from crying.
My soul was crying.

It's a cruel feeling.
Not knowing what's going to happen
the next day.
I m talking about the current situation
in my country..
As you may have heard in the news, it's
not looking good.

People lose their jobs each day.
People lose their homes each day.
People lose their hope each day.

And those who do work do not get paid.

I actually feel guilty to even have a job
which pays me every month, when
thousands of people watch their
dreams being shattered.

I am 32 years old and I have not been
married nor had a child yet.
My fiance has not been able
to find a job.

And I don't think I will see neither
happening any time soon.

It's a cruel feeling.

feel desperate!
I guess more copper designs will follow! lol...

To Oxidize or Not?

So, I made this ring...which I think is really pretty
 if I can say so myself...
And I can not seem to be able to decide whether
to oxidized it or not..
Now, I have always been a fan of oxidized silver..
I love how it brings out the beauty of the metal..
But with this ring..well....I just can't seem 
to want to darken it...

The matte silver looks so much better
in real life..the photos do not do it justice...
and the Chrysoprase is just gorgeous!!!

Oh well, I think I will leave it as it is...for now..

What do you think?
