The Thrill

Once I made my first necklace out of fiber, I can understand how it must be addicting to create with that medium. I carefully chose and purchased two colors of rayon/silk cord from a manufacturer in the garment district. The colors are a sunny shade of marigold and and a rich shade of bourdeaux. The cord knotted beautifully and the mod Carnelian pendant added the perfect compliment. Hmmmm, maybe I should take some knitting lessons.

Shimmer Me Timbers Earrings

I have always liked vintage or antique things. When I hold something very old in my hand, it makes me wonder about the person who owned it before me. What were they like, why did they buy this particular item, and why did they decide to sell it? These earrings incorporate aqua and brown with vintage Swavroski crysals from the sixties that look like little disco balls on a modern looking sterling silver length of chain.
