I would venture a guess and say that it has probably been pretty obvious that my sewing machine has not been doing much else than collecting dust these days. With us being gone in May, my parents visiting us the month of June, new fabric shipments and computer work in July, I have not had too much time work up some of the delicious, new fabrics that I have gotten in. But it seems that jewelry making has been on the brain, which is not a bad thing since we have a small show coming up in September... and it will be mostly jewelry on display.
So here are just a couple pieces that I have been working on. Although it was not love at first sight, I am finding that Aventurine is becoming one of my favorite stones to work with. I love the soft, muted gray-green color of this natural stone.
