I'm delighted to write that after an incredibly hectic few months, filled with trips to Pittsburgh, Princeton and the Outer Banks, plus a bridal shower and a beautiful wedding, barbecues and weekend outings with friends, I finally found a day to do nothing but make jewelry and relax with Heidi. It feels wonderful!
My most recent muses are these stones and brass beads that I picked up at the bead store last night. I literally ran in for 15 minutes for a few headpins and I came out with the most beautiful strand of faceted (agate, I believe) stones. I just could not resist their beauty and bought them right on the spot.
I constructed these necklaces with the gorgeous stones that my sister gave me for Christmas. They are simple, yet lovely, and are strung on a vintage brass chain.
And here is a photo of another pair of earrings I've been meaning to share with you. Gold rutilated quartz briolettes are wrapped in gold-filled wire and suspended beneath a hammered brass ring and a cluster of labradorite stones. I have better photos to share with you, but they need edited first. For now, the good ol'iPhone photos will have to do.
No matter what you are doing this weekend, I hope you are all enjoying yourselves.
