But…this design can be translated into polymer, metal…and a myriad of other materials. I would love to see what you can do with the design. Send them to me for a future posting.

Again…thank you to Netpage for making this post sooooooooo easy!!!

It was with much sadness that I read the announcement on the Michael Peckitt home page, that he passed away on September 11, 2012. “My handmade designer jewellery is shaped from acrylic and anodised aluminium with fittings handcrafted from sterling silver. High quality materials are used in my vibrant designer jewellery and very wearable jewellery accessories. Trained in fine art painting, I work colour into these unique jewellery accessories. My designer jewellery is worn as dynamic fine art. Acrylic is painted in layers and then sealed. Aluminium is anodised to accept dyes and made into very fashionable bangles, bracelets and pendants.”

His daughter will be carrying on the work of Very Colorful Jewelry.  “He always wanted a family business and we often talked about plans for the future so I am both extrememly lucky and excited to be able to carry on his legacy.

Terri Logan works with metal and river rocks because of their inherent strength. “I use metal and stones (river rocks) because they are inherently strong materials.

Terri does not have a web site, but you will find links to her work in various galleries across the country on Google Images. 

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend…the last wave of family arrived last night…LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!

Pieces of 80/20, a specific silver alloy are reticulated, yielding a random range of textures.”  The results of reticulation are organic, serendipitous…and addictive.
