my new hobby is...


arranging necklaces-- basically just buying all the parts separately and putting them together..what would that be, 'designing necklaces' then?? Anyway..

Been into gemstones lately. With all the stress lately, I need all the help I can get. And you all know I love cats...so that's where inspiration kicked in.

Here's one of an agate carved cat and wood beads..I like the look of the carving, kind of abstract or primitive almost..



This one I picked the beads but K put it together with the silver wiring..pretty good for losing a lot of use in his hands..you could tell he was proud of himself, I think he did great--picasso jasper cat with obsidian and aventurine beads...



I've got some more things coming in the post..probably make several more so you'll have to stay tuned. It's of course very amateur but it relieves some stress and makes me happy so what else can you ask for, right?

You're talented! Those are quite lovely. And yes, I have always found handiwork a stress reducer.

Love the cat theme! Are you hoping to market them Tink? I think they are lovely, glad you both enjoy making them.
