focusing on stone

i've been making things ... perhaps you guessed, which is why I've neglected my blog, other than to post the fruits of my labor so you may see what's been keeping me in hiding ... a beautiful pendant of Crazy Horse Jasper called to me (click on the photo for a close-up of this Jasper's kooky spottiness) ... but it took me awhile to find just the perfect mix of elements ... I've fallen in love with coin pearls ... and of course, the fall...



Turquoise and Coral are bound together, our ancient deserts were once the sea, and here they are bound once more.



a splendid pendant of Galaxy Quartz looks as though it might be filled with a tiny amber sea or rust colored sands from Sedona... it is a "farmed" crystal and not created by Mother Earth. Still, it caught my eye. I combined it with amber Czech glass crytals for a touch of sparkle... like rain on my window...



and then ... another a delicate wrap necklace was born...



filled with blue-green light ... I call it "River"



it calls to mind the cold green waters that rush over mountain boulders in the Cascades...



pouring forth from pristine, frozen lakes, reflecting snow-capped peaks and the delicate colors of the sky...



this one is "Winter" a fine wrap necklace that seems to have risen from just such a lake ...

but now it is fall, and I am in love with the colors of the season ... when the sun shines through the rain and for a brief while ...



the world is golden ... today was such a day



i hope your world is as beautiful...

Thank you so much. I really love making jewelry, but don't get to wear it as much as I'd like. At home, I have two parrots who sit on my shoulder and anything dangling from my ears or around my neck is game. Very naughty! So I think I live vicariously through June Cleaver types who wear pearls while vacuuming!
