Life can become so rushed and hectic. I won't bore you with the mundane details. You guys get it. :-)
The time I get to spend creating is all the more appreciated. And, it becomes a peaceful pause in a busy week.
One such evening and the next day, I pulled out some beads, wire, charms and began to wash away the day.
Some jewelry projects were works in progress.
It is a grand feeling to be able to see what is needed to complete them and finally finish it.
I love the juxtaposition of refined and industrial in the "Jeannette" necklace.
The rhinestone portion is part of a necklace which had a broken chain.
The "Geraldine" necklace is a fun one.
The sparkly bit is from a shoe clip. I did not replace the one rhinestone because I like the quirkiness of its imperfection.
The charm on "Geraldine" is a medal commemorating 75 years of the Southern Bell Telephone Co. (1954).
Southern Bell Telephone Co. is no longer.
I have a fondness for cameos. Pulling one out of my stash, I mixed it with some lovely peachy pink aventurine and glass pearls.
Here in Georgia, the leaves are just staring to morph into their blazing, fall colors.
I chose sparkly bronze czech glass beads and Virgin Mary medals to make fall inspired earrings.
Embracing fall and harvest moons, I mixed some golden hued glass beads, with luminescent glass pearls, creamy glass and bronze freshwater pearls.
It is still a bit warm here during the peak of the day. I am ready for fall sweater and boot weather.
How about you? Happy Fall friends!
