i had a beautiful day in the shop today.

i got to make four pieces, from start to finish, today. it was a great feeling, as i have not really had a day like that in a while.

this is the "all growth" bracelet.

it is comprised of silver, prehnite with epidote, rutilated quartz, and turkish dendritic chalcedony. i made every single piece of this bracelet, the chain, the clasp, all 43 solder joints...

each of the stones is light and lovely, with a bit of dark mixed in.

like its sister ring, it has henry miller's "all growth is a leap in the dark" on the back.
(yes, i am continuing with my theme as of late...)

it feels so nice and weighty on my wrist.


and i made a new "flapper" bracelet.
this one has a gorgeous checkerboard moonstone, labradorite, crazy lace agate, and a small beautiful, natural, pale, faceted lavender chalcedony


grace. tranquility. love.


also, another "griffin" necklace

with a lovely chalcedony




and this here is the "contentment" ring.

with a fantastic amethyst


although you cannot see it, sadly, this stone cracked while i was setting it. (it seems to happen to the best of them.) the crack is perfectly harmless, but because it is there, i will be offering this one at a reduced rate.

well, there you have it, i am off to list them in the shop now.
