Jaded - It's the Last Day of School!

Another creation made rather quickly as my son wanted another necklace made for his resource teacher, Mrs. Melissa Proctor (I didn't even get any help or observations this time). Since my son likes simple things and not too extravagant this is what was created. Mrs. Proctor was delighted to receive this gift and she put it on right away. She mentioned that she wanted something with shells and she received her wish. I'm sure her other wish, which came true today, was that it was the last day of the school for 2007. Summer vacation here we come.

Yellow Turquoise, Fluorite, Korean Jade, Butter Jade,
Shell Pendant and Pewter Flower Charm.

Perfect Gift for that Special Teacher.

Flourite, Apatite, Moss Agate, Ocean Wave Glass Tube Bead
and Pewter Flower Charm.
I made this necklace for my son's teacher, Mrs. Amber Anderson. My son mentioned that he wanted it very simple, so my brains tried to create it as simple as I could (since I was on a time-line of making it less than 30 minutes). While I was making the necklace my son told me to stop as that was 'it'. Wow! He was correct as the necklace didn't need anymore embellishments as it looked just right. My son has such good taste and I love his critism (even though he says I made nicer things in the past ;(). So here it is . . . . my creation collaberated with my son - I think I still have brain cells left.

Let's Party On Birthday Girl!

I wanted to give my friend, Janet, a wonderful gift for her 40th birthday. I would have gone to the store to buy that 'perfect' gift, but the best gift is making something special that no one else could find - one of a kind piece of jewellery. I gave her a card with an IOU a piece of jewellery, but she had to inform me what colour choice she wanted. Janet choose the colour 'purple'. I didn't know if I had enough purples in my stash, but it worked out beautifully. I was so impressed how the colours all co-ordinated together.
I sure hope she loves it like
I do! What do you think?
