Fine Silver

Hola! Hope everyone is having a lovely week=0)
If you read my last post, I mentioned there was a sale on Monday at my favorite bead shop. Did I go that day???? Nope, LOL! I R E A L L Y wanted to, but......I have these little monsters that dominate my schedule. LOL! So, I went the next day and picked up some fine silver. I had a design in my head and I just had to make it, PRONTO. So, first I made the large link chain and J woke up from her nap early. Boo! I hardly ever work during the day, but this time I knew this necklace would take more time than usual.




I didn't polish the chain too much. I like it to look a little rough. My favorite thing about fine silver, is that it never turns black.


Hermosa.
This means beautiful.
This chain measures about 20" in length and I also added a few inches of sterling silver chain. I added some fun detail to the edge of the tag.
There are aquamarine chips, crystals, and stone.



A little wishbone for good luck=0)



I had a little silver left, sooooo.....

I made a fun ring! What do you see?
A bird soaring?
A person diving off a cliff?
A wish bone?
A churro?
LOL!!!


Wishing all my HERMOSA friends a gorgeous day,
XOXO,

Carol
