From Lisa Barth:  "When my my son was four he gave me his favorite marble.  I love the memory it holds.  I made this "memory keeper" so I can now wear it.   I used fine silver metal clay to form four columns of Celtic knots that are bound together at the bottom with a silver bead."

Ruby Flower Pendant -  This pendant is made of a new medium for me, PMC, precious metal clay. I am inside the learning curve right now, making all kinds of mistakes, screwing up big time. But hey, how else do I learn? Setting the stone was tricky for me since it was the first time I ever attempted anything like this and I was sure Id mess up. I did...four times...but whos counting? I wont let a little thing like colossal failure stop me. I gritted my teeth and kept trying. So, after fighting…

Turquoise Shield -  This unusual pendant is an attempt on my part to bring together my new love of metal clay with my old faithful wiring skills. To wire the stone over the silver shield gives it some dimension and unexpected depth. I am still not sure exactly how I want to handle this. It is definitely a work in progress but I do think that this one is closer to where I am heading. It has an earthy appeal, strong yet not overbearing.

Angel Wings - This pendant is made of fine silver from PMC (precious metal clay). The shape reminds me of angel wings which is a comforting thought. I formed and carved it by hand, then fired and finished the surface. It has been heavily oxidized, buffed out and burnished so that there are different textures that catch the light. The green Swarovski crystal in the middle is subject to change.

Asian Bowl Pendant This unusual pendant is made with a bright greenish blue Spectrolite cab from Finland. When the light reflects from inside the stone, a brilliant flash of green/blue is seen. The bezel is made with Art Clay Silver and is formed, fired and finished by hand. I am working on bezel setting, practicing over and over and over again so that I can actually produce something worth looking at. These Spectrolite stones are tricky because you have to orient them so the light hits them…

Liquid Sunshine While learning any new medium, there is a learning curve in which I find myself deeply entrenched. Although the outcome of the battle was a good one, much blood, sweat and tears went into the making of this pendant. This, being my first bezel set stone, had multiple things go wrong. And yet, here it is. I hope to encourage all of you who are learning to keep going, keep trudging through the muck and mire of colossal failure because the next time you try, it will somehow come…

Fish in Love This piece is made with Art Clay Silver and is hand formed, fired and finished. The fish look to me like Mr. Limpet and Ladyfish, except he lost his glasses! Ha! Ha! (I am showing my age with that comment). I loved that movie growing up. I wanted the fish to look like they were swimming in a kelp bed with bubbles coming up, that is why the bail is shaped like a piece of kelp and the casting grain are the bubbles.

The Wild Side This pendant is made with a gorgeous Spectolite cab from Finland. The color of the stone changes with the different angles of light. I just love it. I set the stone in fine silver, using silver metal clay. I signed it on the back and stamped it .999 to declare the purity of the material used.
