these are half of the gifts for my grandma, mom and sister (they're also getting crocheted slippers/scarves)

because they were gifts, it meant i got to go to the fancier half of arton beads and buy more expensive stones than normal (i usually just stick to glass, wood, etc). yay!

for my mom, who is a hippy and loves earth tones, and is allergic to metal (the clasp thingies are actually plastic):

i used an amazonite stone and some shell beads/stones

and how it hangs:

this is for ma gramma:

i haven't seen my g-ma in years and don't know her tastes very well so i really hope she likes this. it's a fire jade** jasper stone and some kinda shiny beads Smiley

and how it hangs:

and for my little sister:

she *loves* blue, and i just got her into jewelery making as well so i think she'll like it a lot. the flower is made from shell, and there are fresh water pearls on the danglies.

and how it hangs:

and all of them together in their pretty little boxes:


hooray! sorry about all the photos, these are definitely the nicest pieces i've made yet and i'm super proud Cheesy this is also just after i discovered the macro setting on my camera.. i love taking jewelery photos now!

**ETA: i just looked up fire jade and it doesn't look anything like this.. maybe this stone was in the fire jade box? if anyone knows what that stone is, please let me know Smiley thanks darkdaughter!

please let me know what you think!

That first one looks like a necklace I purchased from a friend awhile back. (it went with everything and I got so many compliments. Of course, it broke.) So pretty. It all goes together so well. I'm sure your family will love them!

Very pretty.

I think that the stone is some sort of jasper, maybe forest fire jasper.

Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears. -Edgar Allen Poe

You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

I think there is a world market for maybe five computers. -Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943

I love them!!! They are so pretty. They are nicer than some of the things that are found in stores. Whoever receives them are so lucky!
