More bookmarks and pendant settings

I received more cabachon settings, including some in silver, so I thought I would share them. This silver filligree one was among my favorites. I made a handful of them, thinking that I would link them together (see the corner connectors) to make a Victorian styled cuff bracelet. Unfortunately I didn’t have any beads in colors to match the glaze that I used. (I wasn’t able to get the color in the photo right, either. It’s actually a lot more lavender than rose in tone.)

The order also contained more bookmark blanks, including silver. I suspect another color of glaze would compliment the silver better, but I had done a large batch of this shade of green so it was what I had. (It’s my favorite for testing things because it is a very predictable glaze, which is a rarity in the colored glazes.)

Here are two more of the pendant setting styles in antique brass. There are other styles, and most came in silver, too. I ran out of beads before I ran out of settings. They are also different glazes, though I suppose dark and light turquoise aren’t that far from green. I need to pull out some of the red and blue glazes when I get back from Kentucky.

Speaking of which, while I won’t be selling at the Artisan’s Gallery this year, I will bring samples of these and some of the other jewelry components for anyone who would like to see them in person. I find art glazed pieces harder to accurately photograph, especially at this level of magnification. (The filligree piece, which is the largest of them, is only 1.25″ across.)

    Oh! I am so “hot” for one of these bookmarks! And that peachy rosy color on the filigree IS lovely!

    The best pendant I ever saw. I am going to get one of those pendants. I will do anything just to get one even if it cost a lot.
