This week's new lovelies!

Have you ever done something which you were proud of, for reasons you can't quite put your finger on? This necklace is one such thing for me. It was an inspiration that grabbed hold of me a couple of weeks ago, and kept hanging on until I went to the bead show and bought the cord I needed to tie the pendant together. It all came from me wondering what to do with those jasper beads, and thinking that I ought to put them with something blue, because brown and blue is rather popular right now, and then I remembered the lapis donut, and then it all fell into place in my mind.

And I just love it!

I mean, I'm thrilled with the necklace, how different it is from much of my other jewelry, and I'm thrilled with the picture, because it came out so sharp, even if there are some weird reflections. I'm also thrilled that my idea to tie beads together to make a pendant worked, because sometimes things that make a lot of sense in my mind don't work out as well in the real world.

So mosey on over to my website and have a look at Lost Tribe! And while you're at it, you can also see Faerie Bride, which I'm also happy with even though it photographed very poorly. And Shamanistic, a pair of earrings which just happens to match Lost Tribe.

    Blue and brown are not my thing, but that's a very well designed piece!

  2. Thank you!

    I like brown with dark blues, like lapis or denim, but I can't get into it with turquoise or robin's egg, even though those are also rather popular combinations right now.
