Making Lots of Work

(cross-posted on Dreamwidth as laurieopal)

I've been working so hard on finishing new designs that I didn't realize how long it's been since I posted last.

Boskone is about 10 days away and I'm polishing, setting stones and choosing different chains for designs.

I just finished making some silver pendants black and then I'll hand polish them tomorrow so they glow a bit.

Have a new lava (from my trip to Iceland) and diamond pendant. I made one with lava and pearls but a friend saw it and wanted it before I'd even had a chance to set the pearls. I will photograph it.
(Still have to set the pearls.)

The setting was Icelandic wooly willow. I saw it everywhere in Iceland but couldn't find out the English name. I finally bought a book of Icelandic plants and located it. I'll also put up a photo of the plant when I put up the photo of the pendant.

And I have a new pendant that's a delicate setting for Icelandic spar. And lots of new rings.

This is the last thing I am doing before quiting for the night so good night.
