I have been selling some of my jewelry. OK,
A few days ago the store held an open house with wine and cheese tasting and invited customers to come in and meet their artists. I have never done anything quite like this and I don't do wine or large parties, and not so much cheese, but I am looked forward to enjoying a good time out of the house. An event like this absolutely requires a "canvas" for showing off my artisan OOAK (one of a kind) jewelry, and I worked against deadline to make something to wear with an outfit I will be wearing for the first time.
For over a year now (I have had a very long "To-Do" list) I have planned to incorporate a knit lace edging for an old knit silk camisole. It's OLD. Old enough that I didn't mind once that it stopped right at my waist and showed just a little skin. Now, the horrors of my muffin top would leak out of that gap and I ain't showing no one my muffin! So, when I came across this gorgeous pink yarn that matched color perfectly I set yarn and top aside. Now, finally, it is complete and I will be wearing that with my white linen pants and big shirt. But what jewelry to wear?!!! ...So off I went to Michael's and struck gold. Beautiful slabs of pink dyed Imperial Jasper to make a "Pebble and Bam-Bam" style necklace, and bracelet too, but the bracelet didn't get done in time for the event.
