Day 113: The gift of jewelry

30 Apr

Last week, my grandmother asked me to make a jewelry set for her friend’s birthday.  As per yesterday’s post, I procrastinated.  Really, I just got sidetracked and demotivated (is that a word????) by my friend’s passing and all the darkness I’ve been feeling.  It happens sometimes.

Yeah, well….Marion’s birthday is TOMORROW, so I had to kick it in gear and make her gift pronto!

Here it is!!!!

ooooooooh.....aaaaaaah.....

It’s a lovely jewelry set consisting of a necklace, bracelet, and earrings in varying colors of green, blue, and gold.  I used blue agate for the main stones and fancy jasper and glass for the supporting beads.  I think the whole thing came out rather nice.

aaand a close up!

This picture is a bit blurry, but you can see the pretty colors in the stones.  I love using natural materials in my jewelry.  It has a much nicer weight and feel.  Also, it’s a way to connect with nature on a daily basis.  Okay….I’ll stop with the hippie nonsense now.

I really hope Grandma’s friend likes it!

On another note…..that’s the awful coffee table mentioned in my 29 before 30 list.  The thing is a true antique (I think it was my Great Aunt’s from the 50’s or something) and it’s all scratched and water stained.  Any suggestions on refinishing it?  I’ll take all the help I can get!
