Just what have I been doing?

Yes, I am still making things.  Here are a few I have made recently:

I took a course in metalsmithing.  I learned to saw, anneal, solder, and file, file, file metal. The pendant is silver soldered onto copper that I heat treated to colourize.  There are two band rings, one silver and the other copper.  Also a Russian wedding ring in copper with three interlocking rings.  And a silver spinner ring.  I have to say that I don't like sawing at all and broke many blades to complete these, but I did enjoy everything else.





Then I decided to do a little bead embroidery.  This cuff fastens with 2 magnetic clasps.





After that I did some bead crochet.  This necklace uses 2 different sizes of beads randomly strung.  The clasp is 2 dragon heads.
