Necklaces...


Goodness how time flies this time of year...when the days feel short and you are tired and sluggish. I have been trying to get some light to photograph these pieces for days...but finally, here they are. Above, a new design - Anemone..oxidised silver strung with faceted citrine beads..and here is the finished freesia necklace too ... I am still working on some other pieces, and *hope* to have them ready to go in the shop next week. I know, I know...I have been saying that for days...but, but, but..things keep getting in the way. Soon though, really ;))

On Wednesday night I went to see Ray LaMontagne in concert. Glasgow was sold out because I waited too long, but I managed to get some tickets for Edinburgh on ebay [!!]...really, truly...he was utterly amazing. I actually couldn't believe it - it was beyond anything I expected...and even thinking about it now, the sound he makes...makes me want to cry. It is like he has the voice of ten men, and he just reaches into you and grabs your soul. It was the best live performance I have *ever* seen....Jolene and Empty just blew me away. ...Ever been to a gig and it just stays with you for days, ringing in your head?......wow. He was supported by Leona Naess who was great too - beautiful voice, and again one of the best support acts I have seen.

Seeing someone as amazing as that sort of makes you feel lost for words....so, for now - have a wonderful weekend. Listen to Ray if you can.

Both these designs are gorgeous! I really love how your work is all about the basic sillhouette of the designs. The Freesia necklace is my favorite--I love the three-dimensional aspect of that design. Lovely.

Abigail,
First... Another beautiful work of art! + Second...
I have yet to see/hear Ray L. in person. You are so very fortunate. I have been listening to his music repeatedly for weeks. No... months!
Best,

Hi Abigail,

I've been admiring your work from afar, and so have come here to give my kudos to your work on behalf of de-lurking week (month is a more appropriate time-frame for me, and a saner one too!) I love all your pieces, and am looking forward to seeing much more.
