Ooooo, it's jewel time!
I am just finishing up taking hundreds of photos of jewels.
Earrings, bracelets, necklaces and all sorts of goodies I have been making.
I am adding a huge variety of new goods to my jewelry shop.
From pearls, chalcedony, golds, citrine, candy colors...
To delicious colorful gems like...
Rubies, amethyst, iolite, peridot, garnet - yumm!
Charms, dangles, beads, semi precious stones...
Crystals and more!
Such treasures I have searched high and low for to make lovely jewel treats.
I am so excited, I never make anything without trying it on several times.
If I would not wear it I don't make it.
I wish the camera would do a better job at showing how fun all of this is in person.
If you know me, then you know that I always wear a longish rosary pearl necklace with antique religious medals on it.
I first made mine 15 years ago from some broken pieces I had.
I have worn it nearly everyday since.
No matter what I am wearing, I always throw on my necklace.
Even if I have other necklaces on.
(I love layers of jewels)
It doesn't have a clasp, it just slips right over my head.
Often people come up to me and just touch the medals.
I know, could be awkward :-)
But I guess they feel compelled?
Or, they ask me about it, or ask me where they can get one.
So, I went on a hunt for old medals and rosary pearls -
I made a few to add to the jewelry shop as well.
So, they will be a part of this rather huge update coming in the next few days.
I just wanted to share a little peek.
Show you what I have been up to.
I got a little derailed by a bad eye allergy.
Don't mow strange dry grass in the dark okay?
Anywhooooo, I am sooooo excited about sharing these jewels in detail soon.
Are you into jewels?
What is your birthstone?
I have about 40 hours of photo editing to do.
But scrumptious jewelry pics are coming, and then I will start the process of updating the jewelry shop.
