Fun on MLK Day!

Introducing: Maximus No. 3 Capricorn II

A hand forged Sterling Silver Capricorn, the second of my House Of Tor's Maximus No. 3 Capricorn Series started last Fall, which was a Custom gift for a family member over the Holidays. Capricorn II has wirewrapped pieces of corresponding Birthsign stones affixed to it, in Black onyx, red garnet, and Botswana Agate, all of which are Capricorn friendly and in exalted power.
House of Tor's Maximus No.3 Capricorn 1 can be viewed in a post below. http://wiresnpliers.blogspot.com/2008/12/maximus-no-3-capricorn.html

Here are some items I have been photographing today on MLK Day. I have been wanting to get these listed so that they can be up and out there.


So far only one has been named I and I will identify the others by type.

This piece I have been calling Triple strand Afternoon necklace.

It's little beads are very difficult to photograph, the image looks like it is out of focus, these little beads shimmer and glow a bit, especially when strung back to back, as they are in this necklace.
Stung on 3 strands that come together at the Swarovski crystal stations before passing through the Pandora beads, this is a hefty necklace. A silver flower toggle clasp was added for as an extra touch.






Here, the same beads were used with gold Czech tube beads in a strikingly warm contrasting appearance.

These pinkish beads seem to color change depending upon what they are seen next to.

Each pink bead here has been strung with a teeny Charlotte in between to emphasize the unique texture of these beads.
This is a double strand twisted bead necklace, one strand had the gold tube beads spaced along and the other strand is without gold tube beads. I like the uneven texture the two strands give when twisted together.




And the final pink beaded item today is really not shown here because I didn't like the finished piece, because the chain, even though it is extremely pretty, got a bit tweaked and a bend that just doesn't want to straighten out is now present, right by the clasp and pendant. I cannot allow this piece in this condition; so it is not useable as a finished jewelry.


I will separate it and rework the beaded chain , possibly even using a different clasp and pendant charm on it .

The intermittant patterning and grouping of these little gold Charlotte seed beads with the lilac pink bugles are very beautiful, and I am sure I will find another pendant to hang from this beaded necklace, and it will be just as pretty. Of course I will utilize this great steampunk pendant very quickly, too. The rubies still intact, this steampunk inverted watch pendant catches the eye especially on a dark backgound and around.

More steampunk to come.




Well, that's it for now. These items will be named and listed very soon with some others, uncluding Himiko which has already been listed.

I love the Rubies in this little steampunk pendant charm.
In some images they really stand out making this a special piece of art.
