A Wave of Ocean Jasper Earrings

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.

Squeeze Me

Billiard ball slice, lampwork

 

I never played pool growing up, but we played a lot of board games and cards.  Each of us played to win and for the most part we were gracious winners.  I've met many that just hate games and I'm guessing it's due to how earnest we game players can be.  For me joining in was a way to be part of the fun, but I'll admit if it's a game I'm not good at I'll avoid it.
