This is two pairs of Perfect Posts in sterling silver, in different stages of being made. On the left is a mostly finished pair just waiting for their backs. On the right is two little melted balls of recycled silver. Next these will get hammered into the little round flat discs like the ones on the left, and then heated up again with the torch to solder on the post backs. All of the metal I use is either recycled or ethically sourced to begin with, but this design takes it one step further by being made from scraps that have been reworked yet again here in my studio. Jewelers always end up with little bits of scrap metal left over from various pieces, I love having a use for it. #sustainableisbeautiful #simplejewelry #madeinvermont

Or, in other words, pretty much everything going on in my life here in the country: making jewelry, paper craft, cooking, gardening, horses, photography, raising a kid, and everything in between.
