This design popped into my head yesterday, and I just sat down and made it!

New pendant design

This is coming to the Arisia art show ^_^

I'm going to write up all the steps involved in making it at some point for my other blog, but for now, you can look at the photo set on Flickr for chronological images of stages of construction and the tools used if you're curious. (Though I've skipped some of the steps, like sawing down the points of the spirals and actually setting the stone in the bezel cup.)

Before I went on vacation to spend the holidays with my family, I played around with more 3-dimensional fold-forming, as I mentioned. I made this leaf as a Christmas present for my sister:

It's not my usual style, but the process was so much fun, and I can't wait to figure out how to integrate more of it into my designs :)

Mostly, I'm just happy that I've shaken off the lull of last month. Working on jewelry makes my brain feel awesome.
