well, Monday has arrived.... fresh and somewhat persnickety.
Today is normally my cleaning day, but I don't think I am up for it.
So... I am sitting back, visiting with my mom ... and making more coffee.

I made a couple pair of earrings this weekend.
Below is a pair with some stunning faceted REAL Emeralds.. and some vintage handmade Celtic knot charms. 
Below that, is a pair with gorgeous faceted Blue Topaz.
Then... I made a set of prayer beads that are Judaic Inspired. 
The number of beads reflects the number of knots found in Jewish prayer shawls, 
and the beads are lovely iridescent blue and green handmade glass, and two sterling charms.
