I have a prior engagement. I will be about an hour late to class. I apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to getting to know you this semester.
Last night’s BCS game was well worth the first hour of Social Work and the Law. We had major rain yesterday and the satellite at the bar we were at kept having to search for a signal. After two quarters of sketchy coverage, we went up to our friend Zak’s house to watch the end of the game.It was by far the best game I’ve seen all season! And quite honestly, it really came down to who had possession of the ball last. Unfortunately for Oregon, it was Auburn. But really, it could have easily gone either way! Still: GO DUCKS!
I didn’t have much time to mourn because I had to book it to class as soon as possible.
I love football, but with the BCS bowl being so late, this season felt extraordinarily long.
And now that the season is done, I can focus on other things again.
Enter: new jewelry!
I have an Auntie who used to make amazing jewelry, but hasn’t actually created anything for a few years. This past week, she called to tell me she was gifting all her beads to me! She color-coordinated everything and handed over two big tupperware bins full of shiny waiting-to-be-played-with pieces! Add to that the fact that my gemstone shipment came in, and you can imagine how much I feel like a kid in a candy shop!
This weekend I finally got back to creation mode! I’m so excited about all the new stuff that I’m going to post them now, and as soon as Ben names them, I’ll update the Jewelry page!
The first pieces are simple gemstones and part of the Hāʻule, or Loop-de-Loop, series:
[Aquamarine Briolettes + Silver]
I also made a few pieces for the Koru Collection, which showcase intricate wire-wrapping work over gorgeous natural gemstones.
The next pieces are part of the Laina, or dangles, series. They include gemstones and/or briolettes.
[Cracked Glass Globes with Aquamarine]
[Tiger's Eye Gemstones and Leaves]
