   These coral cats-eye earrings are my favorite, so far.  I inlaid mother-of-pearl chips on the bottom portion.

Purple

   I'm still playing with the boxes.  Trying to empty shuttles.  I have lots of thread on these shuttles, and will make the next box with purple rings and cream chains.

Dad's

Dad's

     I learned to silversmith, the spring of 2002.   That summer, I went out to visit my parents.   I brought some tools and silver, to show Dad how to silversmith.  He picked out a bloodstone (March's birthstone) and soldered a pendant.  We had gotten as far as soldering it, but not the finishing up....grind, sand, polish and setting.  
     Recently, Mom had gone through Dad's stuff and came across the box of silver, I left for him.  In it, was the unfinished pendant.  I finished getting the silver ready and sat the stone.  I strung the pendant on one of my Grandmother's (Dad's Mom) silver chains.
