Happy Maker Monday!
... my series of posts where I feature something the daughter or I are working on, 
and encourage the maker lifestyle.

It's been a very strange Monday... which somehow involved me taking a very long nap.
But this weekend, I was able to do some work in the studio.

These earrings feature pieces I was able to salvage from a broken piece of jewelry.
I love the trillion cut Peridot stones and Aquamarines.


This all-sterling necklace features a gemstone cut Colombian Emerald that I bought 20yrs ago, 
and never found the right setting for it. It has a magnetic clasp, and is 16 inches long.
It is tiny, but mighty in color... and exquisite.


And these earrings are made from some findings that were included in a cabinet I bought several years ago. I don't often work with gold, but these seemed to be just right...


Hope you are all being creative this week.... see you all tomorrow.
