Just a quickie post that my Silver Filled handmade jewelry supply findings are now in my shop. I'll be adding more as time goes by, but at least for now there is a nice variety.

If you're a fan of Sterling Silver, but do not like the continued rising costs - I'm right there with you and am doing something about that in my jewelry supply shops.
In the next few weeks I will be creating 1/10 Silver Filled wire findings, handmade to order by me of course. Consisting of precious metal (sterling or fine silver) it is electroplated (bonded) onto a base metal (my supplier uses red brass). So that is a 10% silver thickness - a very nice comparison to 1/20, which is only 5%. This metal is bright and shiny and will not chip off like Silver Plated.
After researching and speaking with my supplier, I decided to move forward and add this respected metal to my shop. No, I'm not doing away with my precious metals. I just wanted to be able to offer most of my handmade metalwork in more of an affordable price point.
Happy Friday! Peace, Rocki

I am so thrilled that I was asked to be interviewed for a featured artist on the "A Collective Journal's" blog! Head on over to read the feature and also check out their blog. They have a great variety of info and fun articles.
Oh and above is my newest teensie weensie member to my Artisan Aztec Clasp Series. You can find more of my clasps and other handmade findings in my Etsy or ArtFire shop.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Karen & Julie!
