Green Pearls!

I've been making lots of jewelry this past week. I've been away from my studio for a couple of months working on things around the house and I have missed being creative so much! Now I am ready to settle myself in and get busy.

On a recent trip to Toronto to see Peter Gabriel, I bought lots of art and jewelry supplies to keep me occupied for a while. I was like a kid in a candy shop -- so happy to be surrounded by things that I love. Sadly, we don't have a lot of my favorite art supply stores here in Newfoundland.

I shouldn't say that I wasn't creative over the summer because I did learn how to hook a rug. I've always wanted to learn and a good friend of mine showed me how. I'm still working on it and I will post some photos of it later in the week. I have to say that I really enjoy hooking! :)

The beautiful earrings in the images above are made using 10mm green/yellow pearls wrapped with oxidized copper wire. It's fun taking something shiny and making it look old.

Happy Monday to all you lovely people!

Can't wait to see all the new jewelry! Peter Gabriel rocks! The new green pearl earrings are really pretty! Isn't hooking fun? I haven't done it in awhile, but I love doing it! Happy October 1st ;o)
