Custom Art in Eggshells, Gourds, Wood, Jewelry, and More

During the Summer of 2013 I began studying jewelry making with the intent to learn skills that would allow me to inlay objects into gourds without the use of adhesives. Little did I know that I would develop a serious liking to this art form. When working with stones I prefer more organic shapes. Nature does not create perfection in form so i think it is a good idea to follow in that idea. Sometimes a stone contains a hole or another imperfection that can be incorporated into a piece’s design. I often will seek stones with “character” because I am drawn to these and I think it makes for interesting art objects. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Composite turquoise and nickel. This material is created with small pieces of turquoise that normally are too small for other uses. It is compressed and stabilized and nickel fills the empty spaces between the turquoise pieces. It originates from the Kingman mines in Arizona

A new pendant I just finished. The stone is Ethiopian Well Opal, the metal is sterling silver. It is approximately 1.25 inches tall. This project is special to me because I was given the challenge to work with a really odd shaped rough opal. Instead of making a typical dome shaped cabochon, I freehand faceted it which allowed me to save  much of the fire in stone and keep it as large as possible.

Not sure what this stone is for certain, I believe it is a jasper. It has interesting patterns and colors so I made it into a pendant. It is mounted in sterling silver.

A pendant crafted from sterling silver and Grape Agate (this is the common name it is actually Botryoidal Purple Chalcedony). Botryoidal means that round crystals have naturally formed together. This stone is unique and is excellent for various metaphysical purposes. It promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence.

Agate and Sterling silver pendant from Brian Baity Studio. The agate in the pendant was collected in the Silver Island Mountain Range near Wendover, Nevada. It has numerous names including plume agate and seam agate. I collected the agate. Sliced it, and polished it. The silver work is mine as well.

I failed to share the cabochons I finished in February so this photo contains all the pieces I finished in February and March. The quarters are there for scale. The large number of Lapis Lazuli is because of a big project I am working on.

Future jewelry pieces. The top one and the right one will have stones worked into the finished pieces. They will be pendants. The left piece, I am thinking to make it into a ring design. What are your thoughts?
