New Leaf Spacers

I think it's time for me to design my own spacers. There are so many beautiful Pearls and Gems available that I want to highlight the stones so I'm designing my own spacers.

Update: This spacer is about 3/8" in diameter and about 1/2" long with a slight curve in the tube.

I will be making a mold of this leaf spacer.

There's around 12 tiny leaves with stems running around underneath the leaves. By the time were finished with this piece...I would say we'll have 12 hours making just this one I think you can see why I want to make a mold.

I will be casting this one in Sterling Silver and I will post the results and once we make the you the final piece.
UPDATE: New Photo of cast piece!

Beads shown are 8mm.

Comments Welcome!


  1. I think that's a wonderful idea! You make beautiful work, and I often wish artists would create their own accents for work rather than using manufactured pieces. Can't wait to see the result!!!

  2. Thank you! I have been pondering this idea for about a year but thought I should figure out that pendant thing first. I'm excited! Thanks for your vote Catherine.
