In Progress....

I am enjoying time getting to know my granddaughter, Summer Abigail - a.k.a. Abby!  What a beautiful gift, this lovely, warm, charming child.  She is such a wonderful addition to our family, now with THREE wonderful grandchildren!  We couldn't be luckier.  However, I still am enjoying some wirework inbetween bonding with Abby.  They are works in progress and once the finishing touches are done, I will repost them!  Have a wonderful weekend.  Spend time doing something you love with someone you love!

My husband and I spent our day anxiously awaiting the news of the birth of our 3rd grandchild.  We have a baby girl!  Summer Abigail was born at 2:15 Pacific time, weighing in at 9 pounds and 20 1/2" long.   She has light brown curly hair, chubby cheeks, and can't wait for her first hug from grandma and grandpa!  Mommy, Daddy, and Abby are doing great!

My friend, Melissa gave me an awesome pendant with a redheaded woodpecker.  I decided to put it with some "lovely blue jasper" stones I had on hand.  I incorporated some red Swarovski crystal, silver moon/star beads and spacer beads, and finished it off with a sterling silver clasp and jump rings.  This is the end result!  Thank you, Melissa, for this lovely pendant.  I hope you like it! 

Peace Earrings and more...

I'm trying to catch up on loose ends - like finally putting my peace earrings on earwires!!!  I made some copper on brass and some brass on copper.  I think my personal preference is the copper on brass.   In addition, I had some crystal earrings I made some time ago that have been waiting for me to photograph and tag them for Artfire.   I hope to get them onto Artfire tonight or in the morning!
