Wings of Gold

Me again:

My son came to dinner last night. He asked me, "Mom, do you have the stones that look like gold with sparkles in them?" I said I did. He said, "Could you make a necklace and earrings for my girlfriend out of this stone?" I said I'd be glad to.

He sat down with me, and we picked out the shape of the stones. I came up with this necklace and earrings to match. I planned it and laid it out last night, and I made it today. Click on the picture for a better look!

He said she likes butterflies, so I put everything together and I came up with this beauty. It's made out of sterling silver and goldstone: puffed squares, puffed ovals, leaves, and a butterfly.

Weekend Happy Days

I had the Best Birthday & Mother's Day I could ever want. My children came Saturday night about 7:30. We played cards & had alot of fun. Sunday, Mother's Day I made breakfast for everyone & then went to church. 3 of my children, my future Daughter-in-law, & 5 of my grandchildren went to church with me. I have 4 children & 7 grandchildren. I was the happiest Mom & Grandma in the world. My Paster said you should see your face & cried with Joy.

Black Knight

Here is one of my favorite finds. As soon as I saw the black square, I had to have it. I knew it would make a great piece. What do you think?

This is made from black sardonyx and sterling silver. I usually make sets that go together when I make something, so there are earrings and a bracelet to go with.
