I hope you all had a great weekend...
And it's "Maker Monday"... my weekly post where I show something I've made, and encourage the maker lifestyle.

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that this week I've been concentrating on making rosary rings... my own design that is comprised of a single decade rosary chaplet and a Catholic Saint medal, all in a compact, portable ring. So for days.... these trays were most always in my line of eyesight.

Not a bad view at all... but every so often you have to stop and do something else.
(and I ran out of crimps... so I had to stop). But, I digress. So I decided to do a little cleaning, do a little cooking, and to make something else.

These are "messy wrapped" purple & Fuchsia toned chalcedony stone faceted drops. All the wire and findings are sterling silver, and the chain and magnetic closure are sterling as well. I love the little detail on the links of chain. This set is simple, but the color and gemstone faceting still have a large impact. And... inspired by both the bright colors of the seed beads I've been working with...
and the color of the crocus flowers blooming in my neighbor's yard (see top photo).

See you all tomorrow.
