Honeybee Brooches

Honeybee Hive brooch

Beehive Brooch

 

Despite the name of my business I don't create many bee focused designs.  Since they are my namesake I am careful to not go cheesy with a bee design.  I've created a few though and this set of honeybee brooches are by far my favorite thus far.

Ocean Jasper and pearl earrings

Snow Falling on Cedar

 

I love all kinds of stones for their color, but give me one with imagery and my imagination is stoked to create.  Ocean jasper is one of those gemstones that never fails to help the process.

One of my favorite books is Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson.  I love a good mystery, but this one also transports one to its locale on a remote island in the Puget Sound off the Washington coast.  When I saw this pair of ocean jasper cabochons I was there once again even though I'd read it many years ago.
