Despite my intentions to create something from a plan, my jewely always evolves in stages. Sometimes I think I just don’t know when to stop. I keep adding things and taking away other things until I finally think ….it’s done! I wonder if anyone else works this way. I do the same thing when I draw, paint or do anything creative. Am I a perfectionist or just plain neurotic?

After having created my Here Comes the Sun necklace, I wanted to make another pendant utilizing the same technique I had just “mastered”.
As usual, I created a necklace around the pendant. I added some turquoise beads for contrast and yellow calcite for the chain.
Fortunately, or unfortunately, the necklace sold within one day after listing. This repeat customer was one I had made a special order for previously. Now she wants earrings to match. Could it get any better?
I’m so glad I took that initial order. I really didn’t think it would sell that quickly, if ever.
I added a “hanger” of twisted wires, then some Turquoise beads…….
OK, so now it’s becoming a necklace..not a pendant nor a pin, so I have to create some sort of chain.
