"Peek a Boo" and "Hit n Run"

I apologize to my fellow bloggers, Facebook friends and jewelry friends for my disappearance over the last 2-3 months. I am without internet these days and have been adventuring to the library to use public computers to stay in touch with friends, emails, blogging, and FB. I barely get registered to a computer and it my times is up. I feel like I'm playing "Peek a Boo" on FB sometimes. ;-)

My youngest sister was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. She is a real trooper and a very positive woman. She has been going through Chemo and has finally finished her last dose. We are waiting to see if they can proceed with surgery. Needless to say, a big sister hates feeling helpless watching her baby sister go through such an ordeal. I find much comfort walking and riding my bike. Being outside and listening to the universe always calms a heavy heart. To those who have blessed me with their friendship, I apologize for my sudden silence. As soon as I am plugged back in, I can update more often. While making jewelry doesn't take priority right now it is still one of the best ways feel good.

Steel and Stone necklace

This necklace has a industrial "feel" to it. It is full of color, depth and textures. I used annealed black steel wire in 2 gauges and roughly weaved it together. Afterwards, I wired an assorted mixture of stones such as ; agates, jaspers, dyed jades, citrine, amethysts, rose quartz and coral to the frame. Once in place, I wrapped the stones once again in random fashion with 24 Ga. wire. I used a chunky antiqued finished brass chain to hang it from. A brass and black heart charm dangles from the bottom of the pendant.
