I'm really into orange right now. I've always liked orange as an accent to turquoise in my jewelry. Turquoise and carnelian or coral or sunstone. But lately I have found myself attracted to orange independently of any other colors. I made this little bouquet for a friend that is in the hospital. I think it turned out quite nicely with store bought roses and zinnias and coneflower from my garden. Check out my orange jewelry and supplies.

Ta Da...

Fiber Saucer Cuff
Originally uploaded by ashleyjewelry
I've finally finished two of my three fiber pieces. There is a ring as well that is almost finished. I am really excited about them. Here is the cuff with three saw pierced silver domes. The domes are connected to copper discs by tiny nuts and bolts. The fiber part was made by my mom, Connie Akers. She made it on a felting machine with all sorts of fibers. I need to come up with names for these pieces. That is always hard for me.

And the brooch/pendant.

It's done!
