I had some pieces around that I kept thinking I was going to use for something, and was happy to finally get around to it.
The two that are blue glass with pearls look good worn together. I hope all that going on around my neck at once deters from my ever growing, saggy, wattle. I kind of go back and forth on how to deal with that issue. Wear a ton of jewels to distract? Or keep it simple to not draw attention?
See what I mean?
Oh man, I just showed a close up of my wattle!!!!!! Oh my gosh, what is wrong with me? I guess, I know that it is there, and can't be hidden or ignored. I am what I am and need to accept it. Unless I want to wear turtle neck sweaters year round. Heck, in a few years, I'll look at this photo and think these were the good ole days, back when my wattle and saggy skin were in the newbie stages of just learning how to sag. I'll probably think this is a great photo.
This is a necklace I made for the Hippy Chick, it is a happy rainbow of semi precious stones. My pal, Queen Regina, gave me some beautiful beads to work with a while back and I'm just now using them all up.
I always wear any necklace a while before selling or giving it away. They have to be proven comfy, and stay together well before they leave.
It had been a long, long time, since I'd been in a jewelry mood. This has been fun.
I've made a few as gifts too. This one is for a friend who loves buttons, my BFF, Beth.
This is an old brooch set with amathyst and mother of pearl. I hung ruby and garnets from it, along with a locket that will hold photos of my girls, and a charm that has my name and birthdate on it. I think it was from my grandma's charm bracelet. Or maybe my mom's?
