Happy Maker Monday!
... my series of posts where I feature something the daughter or I are working on, 
and encourage the maker lifestyle.

It's been a very strange Monday... which somehow involved me taking a very long nap.
But this weekend, I was able to do some work in the studio.

These earrings feature pieces I was able to salvage from a broken piece of jewelry.
I love the trillion cut Peridot stones and Aquamarines.

This all-sterling necklace features a gemstone cut Colombian Emerald that I bought 20yrs ago, 
and never found the right setting for it. It has a magnetic clasp, and is 16 inches long.
It is tiny, but mighty in color... and exquisite.

And these earrings are made from some findings that were included in a cabinet I bought several years ago. I don't often work with gold, but these seemed to be just right...

Hope you are all being creative this week.... see you all tomorrow.

(the photo at the top of today's post is one I took out in California a few years ago. It is the front facing of a French Hostel/ Hotel... and is absolutely fabulous. We were able to stay there for a night, and we had a wonderful time)
