Purty! Nice to see something other than weeds growing.
Brad & the kids planted these this spring.

These are a few of my favorite things...

So this is the bracelet that I made on Mother's Day this year...many of my favorite stones, my babes' fingerprints, and especially, the Lord Ganesha Charm, GORGEOUS pearl and tag from my friend Ruth Bailey of San Diego CA. My only regret is that I couldn't get something in there from my friend down under that makes Dichrioc glass...she's the BOMB!
Still, it is a bracelet that gets attention when I wear it (LOUD!). LOVE IT!!!

For Ruth

A lovely Lotus flower. I made this set for Ruth Bailey of Om Wear Jewelry (I'm having trouble finding her link at the moment). Her daughter (Erin) and I met in 1991, and she and her mother are both wonderful people. After learning that Ruth also had a passion for jewelry, we decided to do a swap, as I really adored the Lord Ganesha charm that she had designed. So I made her this set...I wanted to keep it....

She made me a "Moon over Ganesha" necklace which was DARLING!!!

However, I don't usually wear long necklaces, so on Mother's Day, I decided to make a bracelet of a few of my favorite things, including the pendant and gorgeous pearl and tag that was on the necklace. I also included SS impressions of my kids' fingerprints that were made at Borsheims last holiday season. The rest of it is a collection of many of my favorite stones.
See the post ABOVE (still trying to figure out this "system").
