JenniferNecklace1I’m still loving setting found bits of glass, pottery, and other items in metal and then making them into jewelry.  I have a small boxfull, collected at a time when I knew the pieces had possibilities and saving them for a time when I had the skill level to use them.  Now is that time and I am just loving it.

I don’t know what this little bit of pottery used to be – maybe a saucer or dinner plate?  It doesn’t have the curvature a cup or bowl would have.  How many times have I picked it up and felt its smoothness created by sea and sand?  I’m proud to have used it and hope I honored it by setting it in sterling silver and arranging beads in colors and shapes that echo its quiet beauty.
