Sorry to shout, but I am really really excited about our trip up North tomorrow: I will be gone for three days and I hope to write while I am there!
In preparation today I made two custom orders: a gorgeous large agate ring and a lovely mountainous stone I have not identified ( it was supplied by the lovely buyer ).
I also had the pleasure of making an incredibly intricate and druzy-filled Moctezuma Agate necklace with a free-swinging bail and a bevy of sterling granules tucked inside the agate. It is stunning and rare and will be in the shop today!
Tomorrow morning I will ship out my last orders and we will hit the open road to Northern California ( eeek!) I have set my sights on Petaluma, a little town filled with bungalows and yoga studios with a huge weekly farmer's market and a much slower pace: I have been living in major cities ( NYC and LA ) since I graduated college ( from a sleepy town in Ohio, no less! ) and I really really really want some peace in my heart.
I think a little town ( but not too little! ) could help create a peaceful feeling.
Cross your fingers for us :)
