Over a year ago, I made this design and decided to make a go of it again. There's a lot of work that goes into this prior to bending the tabs and if one of those babies snapped off, all that work would be for naught. It ends up a unique and sturdy design. One of my favs. :)

jeezum, that's gorgeous. i have to say i haven't come across anything quite like that in my online hunts for inspiration. i just found you in my thread on etsy about jewelry magazines and your avatar made me click on your page...your work is all at once collective and coherent--you have a definite style that manifests itself naturally, you can tell you don't have to use certain themes as a starting point in designing or impose gimmicks to make your pieces "you." nice to find ya!

Just like your wonderful positive attitude and helpful ways, this piece is beautiful.
