Silver Plated, Copper, very small surfaced dyed copper, and silver plated copper jewelry wire.
The idea behind Treasuries is to showcase your favorite items from around Etsy, promote others, as it were. The above Treasury includes one of my items and in return I have curated my own list and added an item from MGGems.
Square Aluminum Twist of Fate Bracelet (from the collection)
Cezanne Spring Abalone Shell Silver Bracelet Armband
All the metal parts are from sterling silver.
Thank you for stopping by and having a look, I hope we have inspired you to think outside the Department or Big Box Store for your gift-giving ideas.
Last item up is “Ver-Sea-Tile”, a Sea-life themed necklace that can be worn several ways, below you see it as it has been assembled. The Octopus locket may be removed and the charms centered, or the length of beaded chain may be drawn through the clasp to shorten it to choker or collar length. The large brass flower clasp may worn to the side as a focal point (very fashionable), or in back as desired.
And a last bit of entertainment from Deviant Art, a neat little drawing program that you can play with for free or upgrade to a more powerful version.
Thank you for stopping by and having a look. We would like to wish you a happy weekend! Enjoy.
Photography. Its one of those “catch” words for me. I love it, every single aspect of it, especially vintage type stuff. Capturing images that convey emotion, any emotion, is my goal. I love shooting people (photographically, of course…although I do admit to some feelings of love for shooting people with Nerf guns at times) and capturing subtle nuances of emotion in a contrasting background, with a vintage flair.
I’m Stacey, and Im a City chick, through and through. I’ve lived and traveled extensively in Europe and California, but I always come back to the Bay. I shoot musicians, bands, and people but specialize in vintage portraits – ’40s Hollywood glamour, ’60s mod, ’70s hippie chick – I love it all.
I’m also working with a few film production companies as a director/dir. of photography and am finding that quite rewarding. I’m opening a new studio March 1 in Oakland where I will be not only creating more vintage portraits with great props, but will be working with some of the best stylists and musicians the Bay has to offer. Exciting things happening in 2012!
Beach Glass along the Hayward, CA shore.
This is one of my personal favorites of Stacey’s shots. It evokes emotion at a glance, subtle tones of black and white capture the lone, gnarled, and stately tree in a California park. Simply stunning!
Jewelry wire is usually copper, either colored (dyed) or tinned (plated) with a thin coating of precious metal. Sterling Silver Plated copper wire is used in many of our projects and is just as pretty, and an affordable alternative to precious metal pieces. The wire is plated or surface dyed, and some copper will show through the cuts, this is a mark of a hand made item, and although we try our best to keep these marks to a minimum, they do appear on occasion.
We do however have something new for you!
Currently on The Alchemists Vessel fan page on Facebook, we are running a Free Jewelry Contest. You may see Friday’s blog for Rules and Regulations or join us on Facebook.
So get in there and start pinning!
