This is the third day of my three day weekend. I can tell how much more relaxed I am on Sunday when I’ve also had Friday off. It usually means I also get more studio time, which is relaxing as well. I made two necklaces today.
I love Lora Lunsford’s pendants. She has regular trunk shows at Allegory Gallery. I always try to show up (online) and get a piece or two. They are so reasonably priced and wonderful looks. Today I used a soldered citrine pendant.
I used a druzy above it that I also got from Allegory Gallery. It’s got a wonderful uneven top that you can’t see in the picture, but I love it and makes it a good match for the pendant. I added a variety of gemstones. Lovely, if I do say so myself!
When I was looking for stones to use in the above necklace, I came across a graduated strand of stones (moonstone?) and decided to use them in a necklace. I was looking at different pendants and even thought about just the stones themselves, but decided to use a small sterling piece. I had to take off the bigger stones at the front so that it fit right. I can use those in another design.
I have to do some chores and get ready for the week now, but it’s been fun to have some creative time.
