Double Take

I finished two necklaces (numbers twenty-five and twenty-six) yesterday, so I decided to post them both together.

First is Spur Necklace. I thought it kind of resembled those cross-section illustrations of geological formations in our old earth science textbooks from elementary school. What do you all think of the double chain idea??? And after I put the finished product together with the idea of geology, and after my loving, willing husband photographed this, he pointed out that there's a geological formation right behind me in the photo. How perfect.

And above is Elytra Necklace. It's inspired by the open wings of a beetle about to take flight. I thought the ballerina colors of pale pink and black were fitting for that.

Savannah During the Storm

Some snippets of my recent trip to Savannah...
 The sun rising over electricity.

 Blintzes. Nuf said.

 A bookshelf in my parents' living room.

On a shopping trip with my mom to the beauty supply store. Not my usual kind of outing, but Mom loves the stuff in there. I can't blame her. I would want an extra long tie, too.

On The Crest

I know, my work pace is slowing down a bit. I'm trying to keep blogging, though, even if it's not a post about a completed work. This necklace, my twenty-fourth piece thus far, coordinates with Flux Cuff. See more about Flux Necklace in Aqua in my Etsy shop or my online gallery.

(And I was freezing in this short-sleeved top, by the way.)

Dress Up

Ah, weddings... This one in particular reunited three friends (and former band members) who haven't been in the same room in almost fifteen years.

Drew, Jonnie (groom), and Seth

The ceremony took place in a historic schoolhouse, and the reception was a few steps over at the nearby vintage dance hall. I loved how personal the ceremony was (Do you promise to be Cheryl's best friend forever, barrista for life...) and they tied the whole historic schoolhouse theme together with the place settings:

Pom-pons, 1950s 7" records, and confetti made from old book pages.

And after everything was over I realized I wasn't in any of the pictures, so I made Drew take this one as proof that I was indeed there.
