I had intended, to make a ton of new jewelry yesterday. However, it did not work out that way. I was very frustrated, spending almost 2 hours on Fire Mountain Gems website, even though I knew what I wanted. Their site is typically slow, but wow I was getting really frustrated. Anyway I got the items I need to make a surprise necklace, for my mom for Christmas. I can not wait to have it made, and share it with everyone. I also want to finish the crochet, with leaf dangle doily I am making for my dining room table. Of course, I want it done before Thanksgiving, so I am stressing to work extra long on it. It is coming out really nice. This beautiful necklace, was my first attempt at making a beaded necklace. The focal teardrop, is blue glass, and I just could not resist buying it, it is such a stunning color. I thought I was clever, because I bought a wire choker with magnetic closure, well the Hematite beads did not have holes big enough, to fit over the closure. Grr, so I used very thin sterling silver wire, and wrapped them to the neck wire. The look is lovely. I love the blue and black together, and the Hematite beads are magnetic, so if you are into healing, these would be great. This lovely necklace is for sale in my Etsy store. The first person to spend 25 dollars or more, before shipping, gets a free ss black sapphire ring, posted in an earlier post. Dont miss out on this great deal.
