What I'm Working on...

Well here we are at the end of the month and i just wanted to show everyone what I've been working on. My girlfriend at work, her daughter is having a beach wedding and she asked me to make her necklace. WOW! very exciting! and an honor! Both of them came to my house so we could work some ideas and pick out a shell for the necklace. This is what we got thus far and I have to get some more 5-51/2mm freshwater pearls and of course they have to be decent looking ones. That's the thing with freshwater pearls, some of the can look downright awful and my source where I usually purchase them is out of stock, aargh. Hopefully the last place that I have here locally to look for them in will have some, I hope, I hope!

Just A Relaxin' Valentine's Day XOXOX

-------Happy Valentine's Day------Finally home from running around with the hubby. It's been a busy weekend. Yesterady woke up to SNOW! Yes, you heard me and I am in coastal N. Carolina. I used to live in PA where it was the norm in the winter and we were always digging out. But this was only the second time in three years where it covered my yard. of course it was gone pronto which was good, because i did have friends coming over to talk about wedding jewelry.

After they left I finished a pair of earrings and a bracelet, took pics of them and posted them on my Etsy site, which has been open for business two weeks today. I've had an account with them since '09, but hadn't started listing my jewelry til 1/31/10. Here's the two latest pieces I listed..

All in all, a good weekend, still have some champagne a chillin' in the fridge, my work is done here :)
