Some Pretties

I have been hunched over my worktable almost nonstop all week working on my big wedding order.  I have two more necklaces to go and three more pairs of earrings.  Yesterday I took a nice break to hang out with my friend Emily at her house.  She made carrot cake cookies while I worked on a necklace (so I guess it wasn't much of a break) and nibbled on her culinary creations.  It was a good day.

I haven't taken pictures of the jewelry I'm making for this wedding, but I thought you might like to see some of the things I made earlier this summer.

I made five pairs of these earrings for a wedding.  
Those blue stones were amazing and reflected light and colors like crazy!

I made this branch necklace with the birthstones of siblings and their spouses.
I love that the parents treat their in-laws as their own children
 (just like my own do)!
Here's a close up.  
All the birthstones happened to be blue.

Here's another birthstone style. 
 I commissioned the hammered leaf from my friend Lorraine
who is a wonderful artist.  I have since purchased my own hammer and
bench block so I can create these leaves on my own, too.

The deadline for the jewelry I've been working on this week is Saturday.  So after that I'll show you pictures of those. But here's a hint: green trees!
