I am excited to announce that I am opening a Etsy store! The name of the store is CharmaineParker, (that’s with no space). I have been working this summer in sterling silver. It has been a while since I’ve worked with just metal, but with this brutal Florida heat taking a break from glass torch work seemed like a good idea! I actually started jewelry making 15 years ago learning metalsmithing. It has been a joy taking saw to metal and I have some wonderful Fretz jeweler hammers that I just love to use. As some of you know I have struggled with a torn rotator cuff from a previous art show and even though its better, ( I am grateful to be able to work with no problem),  I am excited to be able to sell my jewelry online without having to deal with the heavy booth set up. Most of the jewelry I am posting now is sterling silver metal but more glass with jewelry is to come. I will be uploading new jewelry all the time so please take a look! Here is a sample of the earrings I have in the store for now. This oak leaf is sawn from 18 gauge sterling silver sheet, the earrings are polished then textured with hammers. The gems are gorgeous AAA deep sky blue Topaz faceted tear drop briolettes and parrot green Peridot micro faceted tear drops. Address for shop: etsy.com/shop/CharmaineParker    When my web tech, (darling daughter) comes home I will have her link to website. Thanks!
