Happy New Year

Hello friends, I'm back after a much needed break! Sometimes you just need to unplug and come back refreshed and ready to jump back into the swing of things!

2012 is the year of the Water Dragon. Sounds auspicious doesn't it?
Lots of surprises are in store for all my lovely friends but as its still a bit early to tell all, I have to beg your indulgence awhile longer.

While I was away, I didn't manage to completely leave work behind. This year, I'm going to incorporate lots of new elements to the jewelry.  There will still be a concentration on my beautiful vintage and antique beads but I was thinking why not mix it up a little with some semi-precious stones?

Here's a bit of a sneak preview......

Lovely azurites with some antique pendants..doesn't this stone look like the Earth?

And how can I forgo my antique beads when they're as beautiful as this pendant I've just made?

Hope you like all the new things and I hope to see you all soon!
