Shaman Inspired Necklace

I’ve always loved Shaman type necklaces or jewelry.  Anything grungy, earthy, ethnic, tribal….these are all words that sing to me when I think of jewelry.  I love this style, probably more so than any other but seldom create anything using this theme – well kind of, but very understated.  I’ve always wanted to create something…

Some New Finished Pieces Featuring Swellegant Veneers

This week I decided to use up some of the Swellegant veneers that have been sitting on my desk…for quite a while now I might add.  I had a range of veneers to work with including the Swellegant range, some foiled veneers, inky texture and crackle.  I created some simple shield pendants and then mixed…
