Creation of Etsy shop - Day three

More goodies in the shop. Here we go!

I love making bracelets. They are so much easier to me then necklaces or even earrings. Earrings seem easy but they rarely are since such a big statement needs to be made in such a small area. Whenever I first see a bead I always think about how large it will be on my wrist. If it's too big for my wrist then I usually pass it up. It's kinda sad actually. When I worked as a chemist I wasn't allowed to wear jewelry especially bracelets. They could easily get caught on something or end up dipped in some weird substance like a sample or acid. I think that's why I am so in love with them now. I guess it's the forbidden fruit that I wasn't allowed to have before. So, needless to say, here is yet another bracelet. Please excuse me and my love for certain accessories!
This little beauty reminds me of candy on Easter morning with it's pink, green, and yellow tourmaline which happens to be one of my favorite stones because of it's variation in color. It has a triple strand of the stones with a few tiny freshwater pearls.
Ok, so here's a necklace. Yeah, I actually broke down and made something other than a bracelet. I guess stranger things have happened. This one is named Solemn Mt. Emei which is one of the sacred Buddhist mountains in China. Glowing peach, gray, and white moonstones along with a lotus charm.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend. I have a camping trip scheduled. Too bad it's supposed to rain all weekend. :( Oh well, I guess that just adds to the adventure.
