Yeah! I finally found some time to fabricate a design concept that has been rolling around in my head for quite some time now!! I made these toggle clasps to go with my chain maille and other silver bracelets. What fun! Now that I have worked on a couple, I have sooo many other ideas that can branch out from here! The possibilities are endless!! One example, the toggle used as a pendant!

New Sizing Available for Shop Items!

Unfortunately, when working with most types of stone, once the stone is secured in the setting, there is no way to resize the ring, or change the piece to a pendant. So.....I will be listing the majority of my new pieces, before the final fabrication steps are complete, so that they may be custom sized as rings or pendants! These are pictures of my first listings of this nature!!
