Tippy would be happy. I am working on MCM inspired sterling birds today. Pendants. #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #handmadejewelry #christophercarpentinojewelry #sterling #bird #birdpendant #birdnecklace #sterlingbird #madeinsavannah
Just a MCM inspired brooch in German Silver I am working on. Playing with ideas, design, space. #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #handmadejewelry #christophercarpentinojewelry #germansilver #brooch #madeinsavannah #ooak
Heya peeps. Head over to @misterbnation and help with his kickstarter! Why? Because he is SO close and why? Because this is one on my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies! And I have his Divine ‘FILTH’ pin with the Pink Flamingos dress and I ADORE it! #misterbnation #kickstarter #helpaguyout #deathbecomesher #enamelpins
Another piece from my recent ‘brass menagerie’ from last week. I love the simplicity. #brassbrooch #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #handmadejewelry #brassjewelry #christophercarpentinojewelry #handmadejewelry #hammeredjewelry #ooakjewelry #ooak #madeinsavannah #calderinspired
It has been ring and brooch central in the studio lately. Here are a couple new ones to add. An opalish yellow and a jonquil on brass! Both featuring vintage stones. #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #handmadejewelry #brassjewelry #brassring #vintage #rhinestones #christophercarpentinojewelry #vintagerhinestones #jewelryaddict #jewelrydesigner
Sometimes things go in a different direction than intended. Truly obnoxious brass ring with huge 27mm, vintage, acrylic, kinda rose cut sapphire blue stone. Fits nicely on a 7-7.5 and be expanded a size or two. This needs a killer home with someone who wants to be noticed. DM for details! #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #handmadejewelry #brassjewelry #brassring #madeinsavannah #ooak #acrylic #plastic #vintage #christophercarpentinojewelry #bigring #obnoxiousjewelry

I bought a few of these brass casting several years ago and have held onto two of the 4. They are very much a blatant copy of another piece, and I knew they were ‘special’ when I got them. I finally made one into a brooch. Thank you to @50satomic for posting the original last year (screen shot of that post is pic #3). This is for my personal collection. I have one other, and would consider making another brooch if someone is interested. #brassbrooch #jewelryartist #midcenturyinspired #handmadejewelry #brassjewelry #madeinsavannah #christophercarpentinojewelry #copy
I keep boiling ideas down in my head to the simplest forms. What do you see in this MCM inspired brass brooch? Do you see an animal, a ‘word,’ a ‘thought’? Tell me what you see. #midcenturyinspired #christophercarpentinojewelry #brass #brassjewelry #brassbrooch #handmadejewelry #jewelryartist #madeinsavannah #ooak #jewelrydesigner
A day away. Cocktails just feet from the ocean. #ocean #beach #saintsimonsisland #kingandprince #kingandprinceresort #beachday #maitai #daydrinking #sunburn
Studio archeology. I am cleaning. I finally wiped down my standing work area and uncovered this. I designed the sterling and malachite piece directly on the wood. Cocktails may have been involved. She is LONG gone. #jewelryaddict #jewelrydesigner #malachite #jewelrydesign #studiocleaning #christophercarpentinojewelry #madeinsavannah
Finally some studio time! Hand textured brass ‘fold’ earrings. Available before they head to Baltimore! DM for info! They frame the face quite nicely.  #jewelryartist #jewelryaddict #jewelrydesigner #christophercarpentinojewelry #brass #brassearrings #texture #texturedearrings #midcenturyinspired #statementearrings
