Customer request.

 Recently a very good customer requested I make a bracelet and earrings to go with
this necklace.  So that is what I was doing with my afternoon yesterday.  I sent her pictures and she was really happy with the result.

Bracelet Helpers

I have a new batch of bracelet helpers ready for the spring shows.  Maybe if I put one of these in my jewelry box I would wear bracelets more often.

Lots of leaves.

 Lots of leaves in spring and fall colors are ready for the spring.  I made sets up of the small ones and they make a nice tinkling sound when they are on the display.
The big leaves are one of my favorites all the texture and color just seems to make them alive.

Of course..........

........I had to make a few giant lentils to take to Tucson with us.  These baby's are pretty big a good inch and a half across and about 3/4 of an inch thick.

Thimbles

I haven't gotten near as many of these made as I had wanted but they still make a nice little group.  I sort of think they look like they are standing like the stones of Stonehenge.

Large Cone Beads

I so wanted to get more of these big cone pairs finished up before Tucson but alas I don't think it is going to happen.  I love these they are almost 2 inches long and they are great to use on crocheted beaded ropes or kumihimo.

More from the Prehistoric series.

 Of course the Prehistoric series had to have some barnacle encrusted flower spikes.
 These are the same shapes I use in my Alice's Garden series but colors and etching to make you think of age.
Of course there had to be some big etched bell flower shapes to go with the spiky pieces.
