This necklace has one strand of freshwater pearls, two strands of peridot stone chips, and one strand that is a mix of peridot, citrine and aquamarine. I threw in a bunch of Bali sterling silver rondells and gorgeous end cones to complete this piece. It makes me think of spring and summer which is nice this time of year!

My first post!

I guess there always has to be a first. So here we go! I think a good place for me to start is by posting a few pictures of my work. I will get right on that. ;) In the mean time I will continue working on a getting a website up, making more pieces, and taking care of my kids! I still have about 1/2 of my Christmas shopping to do, and the house could use a little tidying... Hmmm I wish I had more time in a day! Oh yeah, it's the hubby's birthday tomorrow as well, I'll see if I can whip up something fabulous for him, or maybe just dinner and a movie. I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out! Now, where are those pictures?
