I stayed at home sick today. It sucks... it's gorgeous outside, but my throat is sore and I'm all congested. And totally whiny. In case you hadn't noticed.

But I got some new beads this week, and they're STUNNING and they were expensive and I shouldn't have bought them... but I did, so I'm sharing the pretty with you!



Some little iolite rondelles:





Look at these amethysts!





And some citrine:







These are some earrings I made in my metalsmithing class. They're black onyx and sterling silver. I really like the way they turned out.

I have such a weakness for amethyst. It's my birthstone, maybe that's the reason. I just couldn't resist.

Lovely earrings! They turned out really great, very nice on the bezels. :) That amethyst and citrine look like they were made for each other - gorgeous!

And I adore iolite. Really, anything remotely blue or purple seems to speak to me. LOL.

I also got your e-mail. :D

Thank you! It's funny, the pictures are blown up so much so I just see every little flaw... but they're only a bit more than a cm across irl so I shouldn't be so critical!

I LOVE iolite. I've got some gorgeous onion briolettes but I needed something else to put with them. That strand was only $8, so I couldn't pass it up!

It's funny, they're almost too pretty! It makes it hard for me to break the strands up and make projects out of them. I'm such a geek!

Had a productive day, did we? ;) The citrine's really pretty. And the earrings are way cool.
