Check this out!
Speaking of cutting and rooting, now is the time. You can take cuttings from softwood and semi-hardwood plants now and root them for next spring. I have a long list that I would like to start, but I laugh at myself when I think ok, "Where will you put them.?" If you happen to be interested in cuttings or seeds, please check out my shops at Etsy, eCrater and eBay. You can find me on all 3 listing as Sandypetals. If you have something you would like to trade for a hibiscus, drop a comment for me and I will email you.

I accented the beads with little blue agate faceted rounds and a forged spiral swirl. They are lightweight and comfortable and have just the right combination of colors. It was so sweet of her to send me beads that she made.

My mind went on vacation last week and left the rest of me home pouting, but I still kept busy. I managed to spend some time making jewelry, but not enough time in the garden or on the beach. Anyway, I thought I would offer a sneak preview of some of my new jewelry pieces. I will list them in my Etsy shop later on this evening. I will also be listing some things at eCrater as well as ebay. Most of these involve more chain maille than forging, but I just couldn't resist the title.
These earrings might just be some of my new favorites. The little crosses are made from mother of pearl and indoors they look kind of gold, but outdoors the colors looked a little more rosy. The gemstones are garnet rondells and the ring is a gold plated solid twist circle. They are light weight and easy to forget you have them on.
