A gift to myself

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Mother's Day to me...a busy week where I decided to make myself a gift. I had been to a jewelry party (think Tupperware, only costume baubles) where I saw several pretty pieces but Lordy, the prices! $100 for costume items? No thanks! So, inspired by one piece in particular, I decided to make my own. This one is made with freshwater pearls, aventurine, unakite, mother of pearl, peridot and tourmaline beads, with sterling wire accents. Since most of my beads are from swaps or bought on clearance, I estimate this trinket set me back less than $15!
A gift indeed!

I do not remember how I first found my way to your site, but I taged it right off and have been visiting for some time. I really just like looking at the art you post on the various levels. Anyway I am saying Hi, and just acknowledging that I do come look.

Glad to see you celebrate yourself! I bet it feels good to have some more creative time to yourself. I've been swamped in the garden lately!!!
