Achingly Beautiful

Mexican Fire opal with a TON of rich red and green threaded under the surface of the stone: the camera tried so valiantly to capture it, but alas, it could not! You can see glimpses, though....

The stone of wonder is set in a hammer-formed sterling silver flower which has been given a delicious dose of ebony and features polished bright sterling dew drops....

Voila!!!!

And oh my goodness warm and smoocheriffic mookaite earrings strung on handmade ear wires... these are life-affirming in their exuberant colorful joy!!

Both the earrings and the necklace will be in the Metal Shop in a little while...
This is the last week that both shops will be open -
I will close everything down the evening of the 20th so that I may travel to the frozen tundra of Minnesota for Christmas.

Perhaps Santa will bring me a Yeti fur coat!!!

What is a yeti fur coat and where do you get them? I think I saw one (a big hairy yeti who needed braces) in Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer. You new pieces are hauntingly lovely! ♥Sue

Oh, those are both really special. Very, very pretty.

And--Minnesota? You will need a Yeti coat indeed!

Oh that flower...and that mookaite...sigh.

I will tell you that it is indeed FREEZING here in MN land. Down works almost as well as yeti coats when it dips below zero :D
