    That onyx looks perfectly sinister to me… BTW, have been regretting my remark about not believing in the healing powers of stones — OK, I still do not believe, but I have no business remarking on other people’s beliefs! I sincerely hope I haven’t offended you! Had a look through my Faves yesterday, and looked up [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Dread Wrap”   1 day, 14 hours ago

    Never heard of them either… I could be the first here, heehe! Or maybe I just haven’t noticed, or met the wrong people — I’ve seen some dreadlocks, but guess I havent stopped to count them… Very beautiful wrap, makes one want to persuade someone to get one of those dreadlocks, so it could be decorated! [...]

    Beautiful sunset! They are nearly the same everywhere — but not quite! I was lazy yesterday not converting the Celsius, and I certainly don’t do it in my head either! Inches and feet to centimetres I can do roughly, but the F is totally strange to me.

    We are outside as much as we can in summer [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Some order, please!”   1 day, 17 hours ago

    Thanks again!! It is not hanging on the wall yet, but hoping it will soon — the hubby was contemplating that (that’s his department…), he was actually mightily impressed, and told that I absolutely had to post it! And another good thing: I could easily take it to fairs and shows, it could stand alone with [...]

    Heee…! But think how much THEY save on jewelry :-O! The self promotion bit is familiar too…

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Fall Colors”   2 days, 17 hours ago

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

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Lapis Chrysocolla necklace”   2 days, 17 hours ago

    The copper is just perfect here, beautiful!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Celebrating”   2 days, 17 hours 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, [...]

    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”   3 days, 3 hours 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 [...]

    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”   3 days, 20 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”   3 days, 20 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”   4 days, 14 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 shared a new Design: “Frosty Leaf”   4 days, 14 hours ago

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Fall Agate and Crystal Skull Necklace”   4 days, 14 hours ago

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