Glittery Frippery

January 25, 2013 § 3 Comments

In the midst of getting clutter and paperwork out of the way before the expedition to Arizona (for shiny, sparkly things) I got distracted, as usual, by a bunch of shiny sparkly things. My jewels are often scattered across table tops and in shelving units. Precariously placed and aligned for my bauble making. Ideas that may or may not hit the bench. They make sense to me, to everyone else (i.e: my Ball&chain), it’s a bunch of rocks cluttering up the place.

I wasn’t planning on making much for my own amusement, I just wanted to clear my orders, then my head, then my table tops for NEW shiny sparkly things. I began, but then I got lost in galaxies of jewels. After I’d been looking at some geodes for a little too long, I made these:

I like the sapphires with the geodes. I decided there needed to be a sapphire stacking ring in the shop:

So very versatile, it looks good with almost anything!

I was hoping to make a “matching” necklace too but I seem to be running out of time. These are the rocks, aligned for the bench. I hope they make it to fruition. I may get distracted…

FYI: This year I’m going to keep the etsy shop open and ship goodies from Tucson. Go shopping here: LEDAJEWELCO!
