custom jewelry

I'm so excited! I just finished a custom order for a necklace and bracelet to match earrings that were purchased a few weeks ago from me. Here's the earrings. Aren't they cute? I love the stone... Peruvian blue opal... it takes me to the Caribbean every time I wear it or work with it.

I had preliminary pictures of a necklace that I'd started for another lady, but never finished because she lost her job. So I sent those pictures as a place to begin our designing collaboration. The rest of the design for the necklace and the matching bracelet came from my customer. Goodness... I'm inspired to make some more blue opal jewelry. I love going tropical in my designs.
Along with my jewelry, there's some southern Utah to enjoy. We're camping (my friends call it glamping) in the Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument near Boulder, Utah. Magic. Pure magic. My next entry will have some pictures of the incredible landscape.
