    Really beautiful, the spacers add a lot of iinterest, framing the irregular jasper.

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Lapis Chrysocolla necklace”   37 minutes ago

    The copper is just perfect here, beautiful!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Celebrating”   39 minutes ago

    Your earrings get more perfect and original all the time — had a look over at your blog: the night’s work certainly was very fruitful! Read somewhere that you are more creative in the morning, while still sleepy, and you apparently set out proving it… I love the two last pics the most, for some reason, [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “The ultimate healer .. with a bonus!”   45 minutes ago

    I just love raw stones, and sodalites are faves too. I can imagine this goes perfectly with your hair . I find it a bit har to believe they would affect metabolism (excuse me!), but motivation and feelings they most certainly can afffect — and looking this good, they will! So, good luck !!

    Thank you! Now, I wonder, why I have all my black jewelry on this rack, and all the colorful somewhere else (yep, the red, green and turquoise exists, elsewhere in the house!)…

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Frosty Leaf”   10 hours, 36 minutes ago

    CC, you’re welcome to keep the info! Isn’t internet a great invention — you get to meet people from over the world, nearly real-time! And the inspiration (without this gallery I probably wouldn’t have got this far with this hobby). High desert — that sounds cool to me . Nah, it isn’t that cold in the [...]

    CC, I live like on the other side of the world… Finland to be exact, and I don’t know where you could find the metal! It has taken me quite a bit of hunting to find good ones. We used to have sheet metal in hardware stores, but not anymore, when I asked. I get small [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Bright and Bold”   1 day, 3 hours ago

    Selling the stuff justifies a bit of the spending (although I just did the sums for this year so far, and I’ve spent twice as much as I’ve earned! Two expensive classes counted as expenses too.) But another good reason: you can make more, and experiment more, if you don’t have to keep everything (or give [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Night with the Gypsy”   1 day, 3 hours ago

    I can imagine this would be fun to wear! That recycled glass is SO gorgeous!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Frosty Leaf”   1 day, 3 hours ago

    Thank you all, you’re wonderful! Asia, you’re so right, it feels I’ve come a long way in a year — and so have you ! Trying new techniques, different patinas and metals: it all feels like an adventure, and it is like Christmas when a piece of raw metal sheet transforms into something beautiful!

    CC, that’s right, [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Ollie the Owl 1970′s Vintage Boho Necklace”   1 day, 21 hours ago

    What an amazing fella, and the beads are a perfect match! Just the right amount of spacers too, and the knots were a good choice!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Fall Agate and Crystal Skull Necklace”   1 day, 22 hours ago

    ABsolutely drop dead gorgeous! That toggle is amazing! The stones are beautiful, and all the details add interest!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Study in Brown”   2 days ago

    Definitely Fall — those leaves are perfect! Why do I never manage to make anything like this?? (Envious…)

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Bright and Bold”   2 days ago

    Love that first bracelet, such beautiful colors! (The other ones are good too — I see that we’ve been to the same bead shop for red Czec beads .) No experience with selling on the net whatsoever, so far, so can’t say anything about that. But I can totally relate to the tearing apart — or [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Red Red Wine”   2 days, 1 hour ago

    Exquisite! (Love your teapot !)

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “A Red Statement”   2 days, 1 hour ago

    Looks really lovely — totally not my style either, but wouldn’t mind trying it — there’s something adventurous about this piece! I’ve not been around, for one — been trying to create things, AND washed out the greenhouse for winter, harvested the last tomatoes, chillies and aubergines. Getting too cold to keep the heat on. Will [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Noodle Bead Bracelets”   2 days, 1 hour ago

    They look definitely wearable! Quite a new take on the double bracelet, for me at least!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Stonehenge”   2 days, 1 hour ago

    Such a perfect mix of elements! Otherwordly actually IS a word that springs to mind! Must be all that silvery sparkle!
