This cabochon is finished! I call her "garden of Eden" for all the lush plume-y goodness that looks like fruits and plants and the wonderful sage green/blue translucent chalcedony around it all.
This incredible cab is Apache Plume Agate, verrrrry rare and quite valuable. Sorry, ladies, this one is all mine :)
Laguna Agate in the most va va va voom colors....
A handful of Tagua nut buttons for more scarves, necklaces and a BELT.
I am so so so so hoping I can log enough bed rest to be able to get into the shop for a few hours and finish the belt. It makes me weep with love.
50-year-old strange plastic charms - so odd, so perfect!
The neighborhood cats knocked over a plant on the front porch, effectively slicing off a piece of this plant from its mother ship with the broken shards of plant pot.
I took to the internet in order to save it, and read that succulents are so alive that they'll root anywhere.
She seems to be thriving.
Curious tidbit of note about this plant: it was gifted to me by a lovely woman with whom I did voiceovers several years back: she went on to become a chart-topping pop star.
The first painting in the animal/leather series is becoming more than just an idea...
And lastly, I made one of these just for you.
This last Elk scarflette will be in the Leather Shop later today.
