new jewelry

Here's what I've been doing with some of the pearls I bought on e-bay. I think patinated PMC looks stunning strung on pearl strands. In case your monitor's colors are off (like mine at work) this necklace is made with a strand of gold and a strand of capuccino, plus a strand of smaller pewter beads for contrast. It will be finished off with PMC cones at the clasp end, to coordinate with the pendant.

I've also gotten out my dyes again, this time to work up some silk scarves and wraps to take to Artful Taste of Autumn this weekend. I hope to be able to photograph and post the results. My biggest difficulty with dyeing stuff is that I really don't have a lot of room for the process and the room I do have isn't handy to things like the stove and running water. But I persevere.

Wow Susan I love that necklace. the pearls are such wonderful colours. I've just read your tag and am very much in awe of you being a trained singer. I am not a singer (at all!)and think it is the most beautiful thing in the world to be able to sing.
My two children would love me to have another baby but I'm just too scared (and tired) at 41. If it just 'happened' though I know I would deal with it as you have and love that little person no matter what.
Hope you have a lovely weekend xxx
