My DIY department has been pretty quiet — more so than I would like.
I love to work with metal and stones. Unfortunately I have no decent workspace and no access to such, so my jewelry making is limited to combining standard jewelry making supplies. Those supplies tend to be slightly too standardized for exciting results… …so I was really happy to discover that there is a spiritual stone shop just around the corner of my home. I’m not interested in that kind of stuff in general… …but the place is a treasury of uncut crystals and such — less processed, bit rougher stuff than in your regular beads store. Plus I just love stones, I even collected them when I was a kid — so the little shop truly was like a candy store for me!
Four slices of agate just had to come home with me. One of them is a beautiful blue slice of hollow geod — so I just suspended it to pile of gunmetal chain of two weights, arranging and attaching the chains semi haphazardly. The large stone looks pretty good against the not too dainty arrangement of dangling dark chains. My images of the finished necklace were utter crap — so excuse the “artistic” take on “product picture”.
My other idea involves some drilling of stones — and I forgot that we lost our drilling machine in the last move, so I have no idea when I can actually execute it.
