And, Now As Promised.......

Today starts the day that I am committing to blogging about jewelry with the same frequency that I had been pre-2013! Well, actually pre-Thanksgiving 2013.  I just really got involved in family matters during the holidays and failed to incorporate jewelry making and blogging during that time.  Then, when 2013 arrived -- WOW! What a January.  But, I hope all that is behind me. 
The one set of jewelry that I've made in the last couple of months was for my neighbor, Lisa.  She is famous in our neighborhood for being Lydia's Mom.  Lydia joined our neighborhood in December 2011.  This set was made for her paternal grandmother for Christmas.

By the way, while I have had resin for about two years now, this was the first time I had actually used it.  I am very, very, very good at buying stuff - but not so good at actually making time to experiment and use them.  I need to work on that more too.  You know, just thinking about the stuff I need to work on wears me out.

 Kazuri beads, amethyst marquis bead, yellow lampwork with red flowers, glass beads and peanut seed beads.  The back was finished with gold brass chain to make it adjustable.

This photo was the most colorful "sepia" tone one and it went fantastic with the pinks, purples, maroons and soft greens that I used in the bead selection.

Lisa took this shot of Lydia and provided it to me in various tones from black/white to sepia tones.  I didn't want to waste any of them so I made up pendants with a clasp, and a bottle cap magnet in addition to the necklace pendant.

This is a very pretty necklace and does the little girl royal justice. What a cutie pie...nice job on the bead choices.

What an adorable little girl! And the pieces you did should make Lisa very happy. I'm glad to see you back to doing something that makes you happy, ma'am.

Very nice necklace, earrings, pendants and magnet! Bravo to you for trying out the resin! Did it give you any trouble with bubbles? I've been trying a water-based, one-part clear product (can't remember the name off the top of my head) but it bubbles so.

Sorry for your family tragedies of late! Hope the rest of the year runs smooth as silk.
