Been off my game due to stress and sickness the past week or so, but it’s my birthday on Friday so it’s time to let go of the negative & get back to the bench! New pieces in the works, with turquoise, alunite, yellow opal, mother of pearl, crazy lace agate, variscite, and some carved bone and horn (not pictured).  (at Soliloquy Jewelry Studio)

A mess of tools and projects, and rewatching the seasons and movies of Daria for the millionth time. Last days of clutter until my actual jewelry workbench arrives.
