Hi,

The cover picture this month is what fingers look like after polishing metal. I bench polish all sterling silver disks so that they have a bright finish. It also removes surface scratches. I am just starting to make the gold-filled versions of the jewelry and was really excited to try polishing the gold disks last month. It really helped buff out the edge of the disk where it has been punched out of sheet.

I'm still (re)introducing sterling silver products this month with a sneak peek of the gold-filled. The piece I was most anxious to make this month is the revamped "Wings" that bears my mother's initials. I am happy to say that I am really satisfied with the end result. Other than that, I am (desperately?) trying to wrap up the jewelry prototypes so that I can get back to playing with fleece in my "spare" time. ;)

à bientôt,

From The Blog

I’ve been using gold-filled components for many years now, and I don’t find it to be as popular as sterling silver for my products. I think the reason is many people don’t know or understand what gold-filled is, and why it is priced higher than sterling silver.

So just what is gold-filled? The easiest way to describe it, is layers of brass and gold sandwiched together. These layers are bonded (clad) together with extreme heat and pressure. There is two or three layers within this sandwich. The result is a very durable product that has all the benefits of karat gold without the hefty price tag. Read More...
