Recent Prototypes:

I crafted this Tree of Life pendant from recycled sterling silver wire, a faceted garnet bead, creativity, and love. Can you see the word "Love" in its branches? The next tree that I make like this will have an E with its own set of branches (rather than joined with the V).


I purchased this awesome seahorse tutorial because I had to try making a sun out of its spikes! Next time I will add a stone to the middle, and I want to create a more graceful bail.


I've had a sketch for a wire owl up in my studio for over three years, but I'm only now getting around to working on it. He needs embellishments, don't you think?


I was wondering how my trees would look as a bracelet with an Egyptian coil, and I am pleased with the results.

Thanks for stopping by!
Love,
Ellen

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sun with Spikes. I also make ToL pendants, and that sun spike is just so cool! I love your work, and occasionally visit for inspiration. :) Keep up the beautiful work!
