remember me?

Sorry I've been AWOL. What with being sick and the holiday weekend including company (my two brothers and two nephews) things got kinda busy.

Here is the darling piece Kate made me for the garden swap. I love it! The photo is sub par so maybe you can't see, but the green fabric on top has been cut to reveal the collage underneath. It is so cool! Thanks again, Kate.

Now for some new jewelry. The above earrings are totally handmade, including the hand formed earwire. The gemstone is peridot. I made several pairs of these in different gemstones.

This necklace includes irregular chunks of wood and silver coated ceramic beads as the off-center focal. Kinda cool for summer.

Another summery necklace, this one of red coral chunks and bali silver.

And finally this chunky triple strand bracelet, aka what to do with little leftover bits from other projects. Pink and purple, yessirree!
On a sad note, our cat Fuzzy died yesterday. He was only two years old but from a very inbred litter and was genetically not strong. Nonetheless, he was a friendly and affectionate cat and we will miss him very much.
I hope you are all well in blogland.

So sorry to hear about your poor cat Susan. It's always sad to lose a little friend.

Hi Susan! Sorry I have been "away" from blog reading - pretty much the same reasons as you but now I am home sick so starting to catch up. Sorry to hear you were sick - hope you feel much better. All your creations are looking fabulous and Kate's quilt is just stunning. Love the details.
