I was feeling very uninspired the last few months until I came across an old box of religious trinkets in my studio. I started collecting vintage religious medals about 5 years ago but didn't really want to make jewelry that was overtly religious.
My everyday necklace the past few years is a tiny silver Mary medal that I bought at Notre Dame 20 years ago. (it was probably a dollar or 2 but I never mastered the exchange rate thing in Europe back then) I wired on a little pearl and silver cross- very simple. I have seen a lot of religious medals used lately in jewelry- and I'm starting to work on a collection with this theme. I'm hoping to share this process as I go- my blog friends have been so helpful & supportive! So now that the commissions are done, school has started, and the major projects are past me- I have a blank canvas. Can any of you recommend someone that does silver casting? I have some things I want to cast multiples of & don't know where to start looking!
Thanks & have a great weekend!
