new jewelry piece

sterling silver with lapis...

I really don't feel like fabricating a chain for it -- it's just so much tediousity (yes, that's a word 'cause I said so :) -- but without having a good jewelry supply store nearby, the commercial chains are just exorbitant -- I miss TB Hagstoz in Philadelphia -- think I'm gonna have to get one of their mail order catalogs, but it's not the same as going in and fondling the merchandise

Pretty! For sale? How much?

..hell...I always have trouble pricing things -- at craft/art shows I can dicker -- hmmm, for time (hah! no way to judge that anymore -- I just work on things till I'm satisfied) and materials $37.00 (USD) -- you'd probably have to pay another $25.00 or more for a decent chain...but it could work on rolled leather too...

Re: glad you like it...

OH, look at you, all hedging and stuff. You're just like me. I couldn't even sell Girl Scout Cookies.

Can I have it for $40? Then it's sold :)

Re: glad you like it...

SOLD!! send me a check:
Ed Kinsey
26150 Linwood
Roseville MI 48066

and I'll ship it right off -- I'm not into paypal or any of that high tech stuff -- hell, when I was born, Hitler was thinking he could take over the world...

Re: glad you like it...

Done! and thanks!

I'm reknowned for my cool jewelry, now I'll be able to boast that I have an Ed original. I'll send my address along with payment.

Hee! Happy!

Re: glad you like it...

yay fer us...aren't we special?

That's a gorgeous piece!

I'd just sell it as-is, without the chain. You'd have to charge a good chunk more for it if you added a chain.

charge a good chunk more...

..yeah, ya got that right -- there was a time when I was really into making intricate chains but they take so damn much time...one here: http://pics.livejournal.com/sirndipiti/pic/0005kb0a/t9678z
and another here

but I'm getting too lazy about the repetative stuff :)

Re: charge a good chunk more...

Those are nice!

Re: charge a good chunk more...

thanks Jen (or is it Jenn--my daughter prefers Jenn..)

Re: charge a good chunk more...

I'm a 1-N Jen. It just looks odd to me with 2, because I've been spelling it with 1 forever. Doesn't matter a whole lot, though. My first name has 2 N's. *shrug*


Re: charge a good chunk more...

OK, one n it is -- I'm a 1 d ed unless it's eddie, which I'm known by with relatives :)

That's truly stunning.

Looks like a gorgeous piece of lapis, too.

thanks very much -- I was pretty happy with the way it turned out -- not so happy with the light flash on the dangles but, hey, watcha gonna do if you don't have a professional quality shooting area (I just shoot outside, sometimes with flash...that's the light splash)
