Rivoli Glam Madness

I can't stop playing with sparkly Swarovski Rivolis

Autumn Rivoli Pendant

Glam Slam Ring

I am having a great time with the sparkle, shine, and color in these pieces. I was not a sparkle-facet kinda lady, but I am hooked. I have been wearing the ring since it was nearly finished. I thought it would be for sale, but I was wrong. I MUST keep it.
Gotta run, I have a few more projects with which I must tinker.

Great Giveaway!!

Some of you may know about my obsession with Green Girl Studios pewter and sterling beads and pendants. A blog I follow is offering a great Green Girl Giveaway, with five different pewter frog-themed pieces. Lorelei's Blog: Inside the Studio is an interesting blog by a fellow jewelry artist, and she is celebrating the release of Cynthia Thornton's new book (one of the Green Girl artists) and the inclusion of one of her own pieces in the gallery section. Awesome! I'm really looking forward to the book, called "Enchanted Adornments", which is getting great reviews in the jewelry/bead art world. Go to Lorelei's blog and leave a comment and you're automatically entered to win! I really hope it's me, tee hee.

Below is a picture of some pieces I bought from Green Girl Studios earlier this year.

So, instead of attacking the sparkly things as planned, I've been sidelined by wasp stings. Three in fact, all on the same finger. My finger is only just now starting to work the way it should, so I hope to get back to it Sunday night. During the day on Sunday, I hope to get some inspiration at my grandfather's 90th birthday party. Can you believe it? NINETY! So, Happy Birthday Pop Pop!
