Don't you love it when something unexpected happens?  Who knew the beads and compact would look so good together.  I'm keeping this necklace.  When the compact arrived the pin holding it together fell apart as I opened it, not sure about the hinge.  Well  . . . . that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  I'll update later this week on the big hinge necklace.  In the mean time have a great day!

New Work

Two new necklaces for the show.  Also, I had to change the settings for comments to moderate all.  Someone in India keeps leaving a link to sell your jewelry and Moscow was all over this blog and the blogs i watch.  Hope it didn't effect you.
Have a great day!!

Two Reasons to Celebrate

First it's our anniversary.  Eight years ago we were married at Mile 0 in Key West, FL.  The best week I've ever had.  Married my best friend, saw the ocean for the first time (I was 45), St. Augustine, Daytona, South Beach, Miami, Everglades, Seven Mile Bridge, Key West.  Then a visit with Dad and Sandy in their new home.  Wonderful!

Second, I have been accepted in a Arts Show.  My first.  I need some help with what I should take. It's inside, any suggestions?
Thanks and have a great weekend!

Vacation Prizes and Update

The prizes.  Shells from Florida.  My daughter comes by it naturally, so do my grandaughters.  I always bring home lots and lots of shells when I get to go to the ocean.  These are little beauties, and headed for some bezels and resin.  I can't say no to my girly girls.

The update . . .  only a small amount of blood was given getting the pin out of the hinge.

Can I just say WOW!

Look at the patina on these beads. Click on the photo to see all the detail.  Beautiful! They come from .    I ordered the chestnut brown beads today thinking they will work with the hinge necklace.  If not there is a vintage compact just waiting. . . . .
