I can be the world's worst procrastinator. Not in making the jewelry but in doing up my post. I remembered about twenty minutes before I needed to get this up that I hadn't written it yet. Hmmmm. Perhaps I can blame it on my memory.
So anyways, I am not going to be as wordy as usual but I did want to thank Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures for hosting this hop. This hop caused me to remember just how much I enjoyed working with Jasper. It is such a calming stone and for both necklaces, I just went into a zone where I was playing with the cool stone as I was knotting it up on waxed linen.
This was the first necklace and all I added to it was the waxed linen and a jasper focal that I have had forever. The delightful brass clasp and beads along with the beautiful, earthy Picture Jasper is all from the treasure trove that Lisa sent out.
This second necklace was when I was in my own little world and decided to get adventurous. Since I didn't have a ready made focal (or at least one I was happy with), I decided to make one using a brass disc and a smaller ceramic focal. I tied it all together with the Irish waxed linen I was using for knotting. I wanted to pick up the blues that were in some ceramic beads I had added to the mix.
See not wordy at all for me. And since you were able to breeze through this post so quickly, you have plenty of time to check out what everyone else has made. I know that I can't wait though tonight is our potluck so I might be a bit delayed.
