Experimenting with new materials.....

Here are some of the goodies that I purchased at Rings and Things. 

Because of the high price of silver, I decided to play around with some other types of components.  I have always used mainly silver in my designs, so this will be an experiment.  I picked up some gunmetal chain, some fun matching odds and ends, trade beads from Ghana, crystals, turquoise and some large holed mixed beads. The trade beads are for some beautiful leather that I have been holding on to.  
 I also got some epoxy resin.  I have wanted to try this for a long time.  I have the idea of making some of my own drawings to use.  I picked up some cute tiny frames for this that will make wonderful earrings.  Now I just need to find the uninterrupted time to play around and start creating.  To be continued….
