 I have been holding this in for weeks! I just want to say that I am truly grateful for all of the friends that I have made in the Jewelry Making Community in the last 3-4months!  

    Now, my partner for this totally awesome birthday celebration is Robin Reed. Her blog can be found here: 

We got together and talked about our likes & dislikes etc.. and guess what neither one of us is very fond of our birth month color, but we both like a bit of sparkle in our lives!

    So her favs are natural colors, stones she likes are jasper, agates, and spring time she pumps up the sparkle in her jewelry a  bit more than usual!

    Well I some weeks before I stumbled on this party, I bought what I refer to as a "smoky" Agate, didn't know what I was going to do with it then but I could not leave it in the store.

This is the color scheme I came up with for my friend Robin
  You see the black faceted crystals in the middle, they are from the first bead purchase several years ago when I first fell in love with making jewelry.....Robin doesn't know! She does now!  I wanted to use them for something special and I believe this was it!

Necklace & Bracelet

    I hope the pics are okay I took them while sitting up in my bed, I have some mobility & pain issues so this day my studio was my lap! !lol!  And I was making sure I made our deadline on time.

Now my gift from her is totally awesome there are earrings, and two bracelets and yes there is blue and bling in every piece isn't that Yeahhhhh!  ME!!

I love it! Oh my Fav color is BLUE!
 Oh an she also sent me a mini care package...I was wanting some Meatloaf really bad lol!  She could only get her hands on some Roast beef !  lol!

  1. Oh wow! I love the stones, and the twisted crystals. That is such a pretty design, and I don't think I could have taken as good a pic sitting in my bed! And I'm with you, I love that bracelet. Happy Hopping!
