If there’s one thing I’ve been hearing a lot this January, it’s “New year, new you!” Here at The Silvered Griffin, we’re not quite there. But what we do have is a new web site! Head over the thesilveredgriffin.com and take a look. There are new photo galleries, new product links, and new information.
I’ve finally gotten around to taking some photos of my scale earrings in a few assorted colors.
These earrings are done in my own design of aluminum scales and glass rings. The number of colors available in the metal, the scales, the glass rings, and the seed beads make nearly unlimited combinations!
I’ve heard people describe these as everything from flower petals to flip-flops. What do you think they look like?
Here’s my new dodecahedron key chain. This twelve-sided bauble is an excellent conversation piece or the perfect gift for the table-top gamer in your life!
Every single ring in this intricate dodecahedron is individually opened and gently hand woven into this pattern. The charm itself is about one inch by one inch and hangs from a standard keychain split ring. It’s made with bright aluminum and jeweler’s brass. Over time, the brass will tarnish while the aluminum stays shiny, giving this unique keychain a contrasting look that will continue to change!
I’m excited about how these little guys turned out, since I’d been wanting to learn this pattern for a while. I also think it’s nice to have a new trinket in the shop that isn’t specifically a piece of jewelry. What do you think of it? Would you want something like this on your key ring? What other colors would you like to see?
