Heavenly Understanding Take II



Hi, there. I hope everyone had pleasant dreams last night, whether you dreamed of eggplants or not. (I was thinking about it, and I have never, as far as I remember, dreamed of Mt. Fuji, falcons or eggplants at any time of year, alas.) As far as the color eggplant is concerned, here's the last pendant I made this past week. I took another amethyst top and set it. This one had larger crystals and was more oblong in shape, so I decided to make more of a marquis-shaped setting for it. I packed it up last night, and it is currently on its way to its new owner. Given that I started making jewelry originally as a way from going stir crazy while staying at home with the Short One, I still find it very surprising (in a good way) that some of my items are now in various parts of the world, being enjoyed (well, I hope they're being enjoyed at least) by other people. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me in this new endeavor, which of course, includes everyone reading this blog. (I'm sure it relieves you to know that you are contributing to my mental health, no?)

I would like to end for the week with this little "public service" announcement, below. This one made me laugh - the first Valentine's Day gift (and the only store-bought gift we ever exchanged for V Day) I gave my Then-Boyfriend-Now-Husband was a pair of Cooties from the old Milton Bradley game that I found for sale in a nostalgia shop in Greenwich Village. Have a great weekend, everyone.

Thanks, capitolagirl (and thanks for visiting my blog)! I hadn't realized I was up at ABS until you left your comment - so exciting...
