Meet Ginger

She was adopted this morning, she's about 8 weeks old and currently snoring in a little box with a soft blanket in my studio. Perfect timing with her availability as last Monday my jewelry saw slipped into my left pointer finger requiring two little stitches.

After toddling around the kitchen she crawled into my lap

We took a trip to Pet Smart for a collar, harness and food. Am looking into Free-cycle for some baby gates, if anyone in the area has any they no longer need I would love to unload them from you! :-)
She passed out on way home from store with her head  in purse. She's had lots of  new excitement today. We think she's a beagle-lab mix, will be seeing vet later this  afternoon.

I feel so thankful  and grateful she came into our family! I hope everyone has a wonderful and warm Thanksgiving! :-)

More gorgeous turquoise from this man...

oh boy...

It's quick pickins over at his shop when he lists, they go fast, though I noticed he saves a few for after the big rush. I was able to reserve these ahead of time.

There were a few outside the turquoise range I really wanted, and boy where they reserved fast. This is fine, because unless I sell more out of my etsy shop I won't have the funds to keep collecting and making gorgeous items from this guys shop!

New Turquoise Ring

I had a very fruitful day making 2 of of the other one later (the other I made just for me, partly because I LOVE the stone, and partly because...well you'll see tomorrow)

So...will be listing this one later if my laptop allows, I dropped the whole thing onto my wood studio floor, yep, kaboom. It wasn't pretty, less pretty was the cussing that ensued. (forgive me)

Anyway, I'm very happy with this ring, it is so magnificent (stone) and so well set (me) that I am proud to list it in my Etsy shop, AutumnLeavesJewelry.

She's a size 8.5, and has a 2mil by 1 mil thick sterling silver plain band. My makers mark and .925 are inside the band...

going to list after some tea and a chat with my lovely daughter...

New Turquoise Pendant

I just love this one, the stone is super chunky and a nice oval. Made with my past in mind :-)
Will be listing this soon in my AutumnLeavesJewelry etsy shop
here's  a size reference photo :-)

I will get a nice photograph of the pretty pendant I finished, I really enjoyed making it along with you guys.

On a personal note, I'm back in  physical therapy and loving the results of the hard work its producing. (though some mornings I'm quite grumpy as I get reay to head over to the facility) All in all both knees are not great so I'm working on building the muscles surrounding them. On my left knee my Baker's Cyst is back, or a new one has formed? (nothing to do with baking,lol, named after  the doc that discovered it). Anyway...lots of arthritis in both knees...just got a great pair of Super Feet (orthotics) which will make working out more fun.

I'm currently craving a pb & j sammich, so I'm off to make one.

Oh, and I just had my hair cut at Aveda, it was getting's shorter and I loooove the new do, but won't put a pic up till hubby sees it.

Hope everyone is doing well.
