can't go wrong with one of these fun necklaces! (and it looks so sweet worn with your favorite little lone pearl necklace- I know because I tried it) this statement necklace has a 16" chain and one of my hand made sterling silver clasps. (the length can be altered...just convo me)
I did some metal reppouse work on the silver for these little sweets, they are also slightly convex.
The puffy leaves are so pretty, they have such wonderful colors, offset by a pretty dark pearl. Of course I've added my own ear wires made by me, and my makers mark (so pretty) and .925 are stamped on the back. The raised areas where I did my chasing work will stay silver and the surrounding area darken a bit over time, give you an authentic, old world look!
Pretty pretty drops of teardrop shaped luminescent Rosy colors lend a nice pop to the little dark dainty pearls I've added. The sterling silver sawed teardrop shape allows the eyes to flow up and down this gem of a set of earrings. The ear wires (made by me, of course) are very large and loopy, adding to the overall look.
These will be listed after I return from the gym...
Our dryer's heating coil broke...hubby took it out and showed me, all I could think was ~gee that coil is kind of cool, what could I make with it?~ my second thought of course was, oy, all those clothes in the washer will be hung all over the house, and my dark load was half dry from the dryer...here's to cold, dry weather for fast indoor drying! (oh, to put on jeans that feel like cardboard, tee hee hee)
We also have our tree, and this year I finally talked the family into an artsy theme which i've always wished to do. That said, I'll be adding/entereing my pics onto Jillians Tree contest over at Plume Gables blog (aka TheNoisyPlume)...I believe she gets MANY entries...pics to come!
Hubby started seeing the same trainer as me, I'm SO THRILLED! He had his first session and is quite sore, and happy. He just needs to get there by silly-0h-thirty in the mornings to work out, and have some more sessions wih Deuce (if you're reading this honey, you can DO IT! Johnny, not Deuce!)
A special birthday wish to Caroliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine, and to Candace, you guys are so lucky to have Turquoise be your birthstone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would demand turquoise colored frosting, over a very vanilla cake, topped with little turquoise dyed Peeps! :D (with chocolate ice cream)
