Playing With Stamps

I received Chinese character stamps that I ordered from my friend Jeanette at Fundametals

I am having fun playing around and experimenting. I don’t have a lot of stamping experience so this is new and interesting for me!

Maybe it's because I so desperately want spring to come, I don't know, but I have been working on leaf themed jewelry! Here are a few examples.

Sometimes Things Don't Go As Planned

I was experimenting with two different earring ideas. The hoop things are nice but not very secure, I need to find a better way to hold the ear wire in place. The little straight ones turned out ok too except right at the end I broke a brio. I heard it go crack and now it's loose in the setting and will probably fall out soon. The pendant didn't cooperate either. Where the faceted topaz, aquamarine (or what ever it is) is there was supposed to be a beautiful little 4mm turquoise cab. I spent a couple hours working on setting it but it just wasn't happening... Very frustrating! So three projects that took their toll on my nerves! lol
