Birthday Present For a Fellow Scorpion

About this design:

I've been waiting to make them into a present for someone. Last night I made the little dangly chips for the cluster earrings. I'm going to a birthday bash for me and my friend Laura on Saturday. I wasn't really thinking of giving these to her...but I found out she likes Lapis blue. These were from Nancy...and it just says on the package...London blue and they are not Lapis.

Components:

mystery teardrops, Apatite chips and sterling earwires.

    These are pretty, Jane. She will love them. London Blue Topaz is a December birthstone. Only Nancy can tell you if they are real London Blue Topaz.

    I think I might still have some lapis. If I find some I’ll send to you so you can make another pair of earrings with them.

    Thanks you all!! Laura probably has the least amount of my jewelry than my other friends. We just don’t get together that often. One, because of Covid, and two…she is a super busy person. So…Nancy, you gave me some Lapis teardrops set in vermeil . Which, I will do something similar to, only in gold. Those I give to Debbie!
