Here is the finished Bamboo and Lotus necklace. It has a 5mm Swiss Blue Topaz. I'm making one for myself for Valentine's Day. This is my all time favorite piece! It was inspired by Blue Lotus Yoga in Raleigh. I was in class and trying not to think about work and all I could think about was that the class was so great that I needed to make this necklace.

The bamboo and lotus necklace is finished!!! I worked all day Sunday on this piece and I love it. As soon as my fabulous photographer is done with it I will post a picture.
I have, however, posted a pic of my new oxidized heart pendant with a whopping 5mm Garnet. This has definitely gotten me in the Valentine's Day spirit.

It is 65 degrees and sunny in Raleigh, NC today. This is the kind of weather I needed to get me geared up for making my spring line of jewelry. I'm thinking of Lotuses and bamboo for one piece. I also have a few new wedding band designs for those spring and summer weddings.
I'm signed up for a couple great classes this spring too. Lost wax casting at Ornamentea and Belt Buckles at Pullen Arts Center. I have a growing collection of designs for belt buckles including a pirate treasure map buckle for my five year old son, Miles.
Back to the studio to work on some sparkle for Valentine's Day...
