The problem with making jewelry. . .


. . . is that I always want to keep it after I finish!  Last night I made this pretty fresh water pearl and fluorite necklace along with a matching bracelet with intentions to replenish my Etsy shop.  I'm going to have to make another set!


I also made this little cactus, who I named "Butters".  The moment I finished him I took a good look at the overall finished product, and that's who he reminds me of.  I plan on making a series of little potted cacti, with different themes.  Kinda on a cactus kick lately!

If anybody has any special requests or ideas of silly things I can make just for fun, let me know.  Especially fellow Cactus Monday cactuteers!  Any medium I'll do.  Although, who knows how long it will take, since I started to pack up my studio.  But I'll try!  

*Etsy shop is currently empty.  I might leave it down until we get settled in AZ. . . hope that is not too long from now!

Hi Cynthia
I can understand the problem about making jewellery - my Etsy shop is also empty! I am not sure if I'll continue with it...
