Much too Much Work

I'm actually catching up on things but it's being really dense.

Polished today and then did some setting.  Green quartz, pearl, gorgeous rainbow obsidian, black star sapphire (for a thumb ring for my friend Tracy), charoite (purple) with lines, and a mottled green jade - mostly rings.

Will set the amber  with the bug tomorrow.

And finished the wax for the Ching jade pendant.  This time it's fruit and leaves in the style of the antique jade. The first one did'nt work out.

And I have all the ring sizings from Wiscon ready to mail.

Unfortunately polishing makes my back ache.  Oh well.

Mood: Achy and Happy
