relief from the heat

I was awakened early this morning by the sound of thunder rumbling across the area. Although we didn't get any actual rain here in town it is significantly cooler. Humidity continues to be quite high, but at least we'll be out of triple digit temperatures today and hopefully for the remainder of the week.

This is a little something I made for myself (as opposed to selling). I had a new top I wanted to wear to the reunion and needed a necklace to go with it. The pearl colors are hard to define in this photo, but one strand is a deep olive green and the other is kind of bronzy brown. There's also a strand of little oval shaped wood beads. It's quite short, not a choker (can't do that) but the pendant sits right at the base of my throat. The pendant is PMC which I impressed with a rubber stamp that includes a rose which you can make out just off center.

I've subscribed to the back issue of Maggie Grey's Workshop on the Web that contains instructions for the fairy shoes so I shall hopefully produce some shortly. That is, if I can wrench myself away from making jewelry. It is quite habit forming!
