New Pieces and I'm sooo behind


I'm going to put some new stuff up on Etsy. I was going to reopen today but I don't think that's gonna happen. I'm hoping for tomorrow. I'm not the best photographer and I could probably use a better camera. However, I'm happy with the way my butterfly bracelets came out. The butterflies are cut from sterling silver sheet. Then I hammer away with various hammers and steel stamps until I get the look that I want. The chains and clasps are also handmade by me.
I darkened everything with liver of sulfur (smelly stuff.) After that I polished all the high spots.
