Can't seem to work and Blog at the same time?

I don't know what has happened to the last 2 weeks. ( Wow!, doesn't that sound redundant?) but even though I haven't blogged, I have been busy. The next few weeks will be incredibly busy too, but I hope to do a better job. In the meantime, here are a few things I have been working on. These pieces will be listed for sale right after Thanksgiving, but if you like them, let me know which pieces you like best. These earrings and the bracelet to match are made with sodalite and sterling.

This set is light green aventurine and frosted glass with silver plated accents.

Who doesn't love deep green Canadian jade?

A Girl's gotta have pearls, right?

I have a special little girl in my life who just loves yellow and blue.
 This is one of my new favorites. I picked up the sea shell on the island and mixed it with hemimorphite, hematite, sterling and abalone. I need to take another photo because the beauty of this one doesn't show up in this one.
At least some of my time has been spent on the beach lately can you tell? This necklace uses Picasso jasper, blue crazy lace agate, brown spiral shells, freshwater pearls and topaz crystals. You can almost smell the suntan lotion here. LOL

Here again, I need to take these photos in much better light because this necklace is really pretty,( IMHO) and this photo doesn't show it off. I used a seashell I picked up on a trip to Fort Fisher, NC and surrounded it with tourmaline, carnelian, red aventurine and smoky topaz. My hubby and son both like this one a lot.

Opals are like pearls right? You just gotta have them!

I love this little bracelet, the cornflower blue kyanite with the pearls is just mesmerizing. I feel like the longer I look at the blue, the harder it becomes to look away.


There will be more to come hopefully very soon too. In mean time, have a wonderful week, don't eat too much and remember life is better with an attitude of gratitude.
Happy Thanksgiving.

You have been VERY busy! Lovely pieces and I'm crazy about the green jade earrings. Maybe because I'm Canadian!
