sneak previews

fine silver handmade plumeria flower earrings with pink opal by Jennifer Kistler
plumeria earrings
Today I want to share a few sneak previews with you! At left is a pair of earrings with my plumeria (AKA frangipani) flower, paired with pale pink opal stone beads. They will be part of the auction this spring for the wonderful school my children attend. They include Argentium Sterling Silver leverbacks, which are secure and easy to use. Argentium is a special formulation of Sterling Silver that is more tarnish resistant, much like the fine silver I use to make my charms and pendants. If these interest you, I hope to get more plumeria earrings completed this spring so I can add some to my Etsy shop!

Below is proof I've been getting something done in the studio! This is a preview of necklaces I will be listing this week in my Etsy shop. From upper left, they are: rearing wild pony pendant on brown leather cord, small plumeria flower charm (like the ones on earrings above) with pearl, stylized trotting Arabian horse on rolo chain, romance necklace with light green Swarovski crystals, OOAK hammered cross on black leather, and trotting horse on black leather. I'm especially excited to offer the cross, it was created entirely from scratch by hand (no template) and sat here partly done for a long time, I finally got it finished up. I may create a template to make similar ones in the future. I'm also glad to get the trotting horse (full image, not just head/neck) back in stock, as they all sold out during the Christmas season.

And, here's what I spent a good part of last Friday doing... stamping my jewelry boxes. About 150 of them. I was running low, and once I got started, I decided to just stamp every single one I have in stock. When you're on a roll, why stop?!

boxes ready to fill!
