It started with two beads

Those two turquoise rondelles, oh and those three bronze spacers I made out of scraps. I was considering making a focal out of those pieces when I spied the picasso finish glass beads, and then the pearls, and the little copper hearts, and the......

Well it just spun out of control from there and I ended up stringing the center of a necklace. Stringing. It may be a new obsession.  And this photographing jewelry business is a whole different ball game then photographing beads. Bugger. It makes me want to use strong language. 

And look not a piece of porcelain in sight. How did that happen again?

But I have in fact been working on some new porcelain pieces. Here's a little peek.

Great necklace! I find "diversions" from my traditional jewelry style all the time. As artists, it helps us grow! I really like this necklace my dear!

Thanks for sharing!

You just never know, what you will come up with when inspiration takes hold.
The turquoise is a striking colour and grabs attention. The starfish look lovely, LeAnn

Yippie starfish and all things sea are always my first loves. Oh I bet those magic fingers of yours can form a most wonderful seahorse!!

Love the necklace and yes, photographing jewelery is a pain. Bugger, indeed! I'm going to use that now when I take my 2,000 photos in hopes of getting 1 good one.
