    Crystal Quartz..mmmm. ;)
    Speaking of vintage. Have you seen the Downton Abbey jewelry line in Macy’s? I saw it the other night,and it’s fun to look at. (Not very good quality close up, but fun to browse thru and maybe get ideas). I’m sure the ladies on here could get ideas and outshine what’s in the store. ;)

    Del: It’s a large, unpolished chunk of obsidian that my fiancé got from his grandparents. =^_^=

    Nancy: I haven’t seen it, but I love getting inspiration, so I’ll have to see if they have at the Macy’s in the mall here-it’s always fun to see what’s up-and-coming in he jewelry world!
