Look what we've been making in class

Just wanted to show off some of the work done by students.
The necklace was designed and created by Margaret Bell. She made the
Silver Art Clay Heart and charm as well as a few of the components.
Margaret is a glass artist ... but everything she makes is beautiful.

Check it out!! How cute is this Ring made by Jerry Buckler. The ring was made in the Silver Art Clay class given last week.
Jerry did an outstanding job on this ring. She pick the perfect bold bead for this spinner Ring and it really reflects the person she is ... fun fun fun!! Great job Jerry.

Bullet Ring

Thought I would share a photo of the ring I made my husband as a gift for our anniversary this year. I made him this new ring; this is an actual bullet casing from his 357 gun. I guess you could say "I made his day".
If you would like to see what the woman's style bullet ring looks like; go check it out on my classes blog.
