Just a quickie - A request

I was asked if I could make a necklace to go with this dress for a posh wedding do. I thought long and hard about what stones I could use and originally planned to use Snow Quartz rather than Freshwater Pearls. At the last minute I decided to go for the pearls and I'm glad I did as the combination with the Lapis Lazuli focal and Onyx works really well. The earrings are Freshwater Pearl and Onyx. The Onyx is twisted - sigh ...I do need photography classes I reckon it will look stunning with the dress . What do you think?

Finally bought some Palmstones but....

my trusty Dremel let me down!
I buy Palmstones of different Gemstones and engrave them with the Reiki Symbols and they are generally snapped up before I get them on the website. I managed to make these 3 sets
before the chuck failed on me. They are Kambala Jasper which is found in Africa. They cost £25 including postage - if you are interested get in touch and I can show you any I have made and ready . I placed an order for a new chuck this afternoon so I should be back in action by Tuesday, which is good as I am at the Country Fair at Cusworth Hall on August 17.

Above is my cabinet at Cawthorne Antiques - I can't decide whether to empty it for the show or leave it all there. I might just take my favourite pieces along - we shall see.
My knee continues to be a problem, restricting what I can do- the most annoying thing is waking around 6am when the pain killers have stopped working. I wish I could sleep in a little longer. I have so much to do!
