winner!

and the winner is... lolamichelle! please contact me via e-mail, silversparrowdesigns@gmail.com, to tell me your mailing address, m'dear. thank you so much, again, to all of you for sharing your beautiful birthday memories and traditions with me; i truly appreciate it

hazel's birthday is on tuesday and we are having her party tomorrow. because pink is her favorite color (what five year-old's isn't?) i made her this juicy little rhodochrosite necklace.

(see the squirrel in the upper left-hand corner?)

i found these amazing laguna agates at my local lapidary shop. they are not cabochons, but i intend to grind them down a bit so that i can set them. the one on the far right will be becoming a necklace on sunday, and here is the one that i made today:

this piece features a beautiful lavender and ochre laguna agate paired with one of teresa's (tajones1463.etsy.com) glass flower cabs with colors that match exquisitely.


the back of this piece says, “without darkness, nothing comes to birth, as without light nothing flowers”, may sarton. laguna agate has been used to help one return from the depths of depression to a state of openness and acceptance of what IS. the stone and the quote go hand in hand.

Lucky little girl with a jewellery designer for a mum! That's beautiful.

I'm so sorry I got your birthday date wrong, I was in a rush, but happy birthday for the 8th instead!

Just going to catch up on the rest of your recent posts now.

Gorgeous necklace for your big five year old girl. (just make sure she doesn't suck on this one)
