I am wearing the largest ring I've made to date. It is a bit of a strange luxury, having something so large and weighty on one's hand. I want to test drive it tomorrow before I put it in the shop, but I think I may be too hard on jewelry for a piece so large...there is too much surface that could hit things.
I am too tired to think or write so listing will come later.

I will likely take new photos of that one before posting to my shop...I really waited too long this evening to take them and the light was terrible. That is really a rich piece of bloodstone...I hope to acquire more. The back has some nice detailing as well...I love little hidden treasures on the back of pieces, it's like a secret for the wearer. I meant to take pictures of the other necklace I made and had every intention of selling, but I forgot it at home. It's pretty much become a part of my collection, I'm afraid. I am a bit too smitten with it to see it go away.
The next 2 weeks will likely be slow and low-key in my little world of metal. I leave on the 5th for my next adventure...11 days
I am a lucky girl.
