New Jewelry Items for San Gennaro Festival

It seems like time has flown since I was accepted as a sponsor/vendor for next week's San Gennaro Festival in New York.  I have been working from sun up until the wee hours of the night making jewelry for this event.  It has been a lot of work but I'm not complaining.  Thankfully, I love to make jewelry!

Being the creature of habit that I am, even though I am making tons of jewelry for the festival, I don't have it in me to make several hundred pieces of the exact same item.  So - while I am making several hundred pieces of things like domino pendants featuring San Gennaro, for the most part, the necklaces, charm bracelets, etc. that I am making are all one-of-a-kind in design.  Along that note, I want to show you some variations of necklaces I have made for the festival.  The basic design element is the same between this particular style of necklace, however, I utilized different images, beads and chain to complete the finished product.  So, without further ado - here are some of the bronze cameo necklaces I will be selling at the Festival:

Virgin Mary - made with new and vintage moonstone-style beads.

St. Mary Magdalen - made with Czech glass crystals.

St. Kateri Tekakwitha - Made with Swarovksi crystals.

St. Therese of Lisieux - made with hand-colored metal rose beads and crystals.

Virgin Mary - made with green jadeite milk-glass style crystals.

Virgin Mary - made with bronze metallic and champagne colored crystals.



These are just a few of the necklace variations made for the event.  All have adjustable necklace chains.

If time permits before I leave for NYC in a few days, I will post a tutorial or two on coloring and enameling metal jewelry pieces.

Stay tuned!
