Bobbles + new jewelry  
Well, five bobbles down, three more to go. Some have even begun arriving at their new homes already, and as they do, I'll be posting pics. A reminder, all bobbles are made with argentium silver rather than sterling, and as such, will not tarnish. They will, however, grow dirty and dull as with all other jewelry, if not occasionally cleaned.

kistha's prompt was "Crescent moon (preferably with points up/left), ice blue, silver grey, war."

I went with a pendant:

The tiny rondelles are rainbow moonstone (particularly appropriate, I felt), blue topaz, and iolite, which can range from navy blue to light violet, bit is usually a darker indigo color. The single briolette is blue topaz.

There may be a couple of other bobbles arriving today, which means I'll add to this post. Until then, here is a set I've been working on 'in between' bobbling:

Every piece of this necklace is handmade, from the clasp, to the headpins from which hang the rondelles. As elegant and timeless as a strand of pearls, yet unique in design. Black onyx rondelles drip from argentium silver chainmaille. The perfect piece to showcase that little black dress, add a one-of-a-kind look to that suit, or even dress up a pair of jeans. Versatile and beautiful, I consider this an heirloom piece. ~ $190

And a matching set of dramatic earrings that dangle a full 2" from the ear:

These earrings feature handmade earwires, specifically designed not to poke uncomfortably into your neck when talking on the phone. :) ~ $65

Sold as a set, ~ $240

Feel free to comment without fear of buying - only way to purchase is to send me an e-mail.

They're all so gorgeous. I'm especially in love with the crescent moon.

Wow, I cannot stop staring at your Dean icon. That is one of the best pics of him I think I have ever seen.

Thank you! :) It's from the Alison Dyer Photo Shoot, which is a personal favorite of mine. :D

You have such an awesome talent for beading. Those are gorgeous :D

Aw, thanks. :) I am hoping yours gets to you today - it shipped to your work, I think, and kistha already received hers, and she lives in the same area/they shipped the same day...

Cool! I'll keep an eye out for it. They usually deliver to my cube, but I'm up in a training room presenting all day.

... next break, in hopes :D

I have them! They are beautiful. Thank you :D

I hope they are not too long! (I hope you like dangly earrings.)

I was initially taken aback by how big and long they were, but once I put them on, they were perfect :D

Yes, they turned out a bit longer than I had anticipated - I think I forgot to take the amethyst drops into account. But I ended up really liking them anyway, but then was worried they'd be too long for you. :)

Very pretty necklace - that's just gorgeous.

I love my bobble. Even more now that I've turned it right side up! (LOL)

Thanks again!
