Pearls and Glass

Just finished a dark silver piece set with a piece of exquisite kiln fired art glass.  It has the feel of purple lightening ridge opal.  It's amazingly beautiful. I'll be writing more about how it's made later. The metal will look black with touches of silver. Will try to photograph this week. (Work is being very dense and a root canal on Thursday didn't help.)

And I'm working on a vivid rainbow colored pearl set in gold.  I'm feeling really fortunate to have such fresh and stunning stuff to work with.

Right now it's late and I'm quitting for tonight.  Good night.

Mood: I'd like a 36 hour day
