Handmade Components

January is the time of the year that I restock some of my handmade jewelry making supplies.  I am using more and more of my own handmade components like clasps in my jewelry and selling some in my online Bay Moon Design online store.

I devoted a few days this month to making more gold brass clasps as well as copper clasps.

 Next, I need to make a lot of ear wires.  You know me, I love making earrings so I use lots of ear wires.

I am also beginning to make some copper leaves for my jewelry.  I love copper and I can't wait to finish these.  Right now I am at step 1--cutting the leaves out of copper.

I made a few polymer clay beads.  I hope to take the best looking of these feathers and put it on top of a copper leaf to make necklace.

experimenting with photography
I have also been working on my photography --always a challenge for me.  I am really happy with my new photo box.  I just switched out the white background for gray and I am even happier with my photos of my jewelry.

What have you been up to this month?
