This weeks YOJ challenge on beading forum was "Viridian" - a gorgeous rich green. I combined magnesite with brass filigree and chain, and used some sweet little owls to make a matching set of earrings.

I recently had the opportunity to participate in a "Girl's Night In" market night with the proceeds going to Breast Cancer research. I made this necklace to contribute to the raffles on the night. Hopefully the new owner enjoys it. I made a number of sales on the night, so was able to make a donation to the cause.

I was lucky enough to get some great treasures at my local gem show this year - normally there is not a great deal to excite me, but this year there were some great treasures. I got some labradorite and obsidian rounds, some coral, some beautiful green agate, black agate, some jasper, and, the real find, some clear quartz nuggets that are just divine. I have already been playing with these, and will show the results in the next few posts.

The photo is the first I have taken using my new light-box, a gift from my darling husband. What a difference it makes - great shot first try!
