    I haven’t been a member for quite one month yet, but this selection is the FIRST one I’ve seen that doesn’t have at least several items that I wouldn’t waste my money on. I would gladly buy anything on this list without hesitation. Granny, your choices tell me you have impressive taste and I’d imagine that your pieces are elegant, tasteful, and uncluttered, not overdone. Your picks immediately said “organic” to me. Interesting, captivating stones, not crystal, glass, plastic, clay, feathers, rhinestones, kryptonite, whatever. Of course these things all have their place, but in my view that place is on other peoples jewelry (not that there’s anything wrong with that!)
    Good job. I enjoyed it.

    Congrats on POD! and as aside for Tim H: I used to be a gemstone purist even as far as not using dyed stones but I have learned from this site that there are very beautiful ways to tie in an unexpected burst of the manmade (artisan made) and still stay true to your art. Even so, it is a darn good thing we aren’t all cranking out the exact same things! :)

    Well said, Becky! :-D
    Ditto on the gemstone purist issue.
    I have mellowed myself in that area. I applaud all those that can create beautiful (handmade/artisan made) art from various materials. Especially in this economy. :-)

    To Tim H: If we lived artless life it would be quite boring,even cave people were drawn to art. The remark was actually rude and I think you knew it, as you tried to sidetrack at the end.I absolutely agree with what Becky and Mary said!!!

    daisymae says:

    Yea Verily! Way to go Becky, Mary and Asia! To Tim H: I don’t think putting people down for using non-natural gems or components is appropriate! Everyone has their own sense of style. Just because you don’t agree with it, doesn’t mean there is not something in it to be valued.

    Congrats on POD! A lovely pick. Just to put in my 2 cents. The components I use in a pick are not ones that I would necessarily use in my jewelry. For me, the fresh picks are like creating a painting…making all the pieces work together in a harmonious whole.

    Congrats on the POD. This is the first time I have seen a negative remark . We are all so considerate and careful with each other. This is not a forum for the negative.
    Ladies, rock on.

    Congrats on your POD Granny. A very lovely selection of stones. (some which I have never noticed before!) I just made my order this month, but your POD is number 1 on my wish list for next month! Again, a wonderful selection
