|Amethyst slice necklace|
Good morning. Somehow it is Monday morning again....it seems to come round quicker every week!
Anyway, I have been very busy over the last few weeks with so many new ideas and creations. I find that I get obsessed with a certain medium/type of jewellery for a while and go totally crazy with it. My infatuation at the moment is with semi precious gemstones.....particularly rough cut, natural looking gemstones. My favourite pieces lately are the rough cut amethyst slices. I just love them. They look like they have been sliced straight from the geode! I have strung them on silver plated chain and I think they are fabulous. I really am proud of them

Whilst we are talking about natural looking stones, I also love these little druzy rings. Druzy, for those that are unfamiliar with it, is a thin coating of quartz crystals over a host stone. When the ground water that carries dissolved silica is forced into an area of porous rock, rapid cooling occurs causing the formation of tiny crystals. How cool is that?
I have also made some little mini druzy necklaces on gold plated chains which are just soooo cute :

In other news, my Tower of London poppies finally arrived. I absolutely love them. I wish I had bought my Dad one too now. I originally put them in the garden....but then ended going out in the middle of the night in my pyjamas to retrieve them as I got paranoid about someone stealing them! lol! I also suspect they are not frost-proof! They are now in my studio waiting for me to find a nice vase to display them in. I am thinking of redecorating the lounge with a red theme so I can put them in there!
