It's Raining Cabochons!



It has been a busy couple weeks at Harold Studio!

We have updated the process for open studio.  We would be so appreciative if everyone coming in for open studio, including part time and full time renters, would please sign in to the blue sparkly book that will be on top of the water cooler!  If you are a part time or full time renter, just write pt or ft under the hours.  We want to track when the studio is being used and how busy it is during certain times.  Thanks in advance for your help!

We would like to offer our condolence to Ginger in Friday's Jewelry 1 class for the loss of her father.  We are sending our love to you and your family in this difficult time.

Are you a fan of our Facebook page?  If not, please check it out.  We post often (but not too often) pictures of jewelry made in the studio and jewelry articles and tips.  We would love it too if you would share great tips you have come across along the way.

Now here is the past two weeks in pictures!

Enjoy and see you soon!


It has been raining cabochon rings the past two weeks:

Some other great projects!

Lori made this fabulous tube set silver ring in Jewelry 2!


 Debbie made these great copper earrings in Jewelry 1.  These were her very first sawing project and she incorporated riveting.  Very creative!

 Love this pendant made by Lisa in Jewelry 1.  She sawed out this amazing shape after texturing the metal with rolling mill paper.  Adding the stone was a great touch!


Pictured below is a stunning modern copper bracelet made by Danielle in Jewelry 3.  

Pictured below is an assortment of wonderful copper cuff bracelets made by Ruth in Graduate Studio.  She used riveting, fold forming, texturing, and cabochon setting.  Love the rich feeling these have!
This copper pendant made by Vera in Jewelry 2 turned out so beautiful.  She used texturing, riveting and stamping to make this a truly inspiring piece!

This was my favorite tool box of the week!  This Jewelry 1 student was truly creative when she took wine bottle packaging and turned it into a tool carrier/organizer.  


And last but not least, our mascot Cody!  He got a new hairdo last week that he isn't so thrilled about.  He has been a bit put out with the whole thing so if you see him give him a little extra love!  We still love you Cody, even with your flat top!

Picture of the Day

Sara is a vibrant lady from Cuba who spent over 30 years of her life living in Hong Kong. She was very close to the Sham Shui Po district - where there are some amazing finds for jewelry! Sara brought this finished lariat in today. She learned how to do the texture on the cone last week, then figured out how to make the cone on her own and came up with a beautiful design for it! Like her on Facebook to see more of her jewelry.
