A long weekend

Its been a long weekend for me, as I took a day on Friday and today was a holiday, but it still doesn't seem long enough as I have so much to fit into my time away from work. In bits and pieces I worked on my drawing which is very slowly coming together. I still haven't finalized all the elements of it, but that will come as I progress.

These are samples of what I will be producing and price ranges.



The weather was warm for a change so I got out to the beach to collect more stones and have spent time drilling them (and my finger) then started putting them together. Their organic shapes and natural colours lend themselves to fairly simple designs. I love the fact that each piece is so unique and can never be replicated. Even the earrings are not completely alike. The shapes and colours are similar, but not identical.

Love the colors in the high tide stone.

The jewelry is beautiful, Jeanette. Are you using the dremel to drill the holes? Very cool. And, I responded to your tag (after a few days :D ), if you want to check it out. Cheers!

The markings on some of the stones are gorgeous aren't they? Just finding the right stones is the challenge, but part of the fun.

Thanks Monica. I'm using the dremel but with a diamond drill bit. Some stones are near impossible to drill through, even with that. Thanks for taking part in the tag.

Jeanette your drawing is going to be fantastic. I am really looking forward to seeing the finish. You are also a great jewler!
