Wow, did I have a great birthday. I belong to a quilting group that I helped start 8 years ago and we do the "secret sister" gift! Well this is what my Secret Sister gave me for my Birthday; there are some beautiful fabrics, The Quilting Book, a Belle Armour Jewelry magazine and a gift card! I have such a generous secret sister...she is absolutely spoiling me! When I'm not making jewelry...I'm quilting!

I had a request to make a PEACE necklace and I think it turned out quite well. I took a sterling silver disc, stamped the word PEACE on it, antiqued it and polished it up. I then added a sterling silver peace charm and strung it on 2 strands of black seed beads. I'm told the girls in high school are wearing "anything" with peace on it.

What a great weekend it was. My son and I drove to Greensburg, Kansas to visit my friend Debbie of Prairieemporium.com We tried etching for the first time and we came up with several nice pieces. Then Debbie drew a cross and a leaf (she's the really artsy one) and we made some pendants out of those shapes in brass. We also did some soldering and she did some resign designs! It was so much fun, it was like being at a workshop for a few days. And my son, Sam, had never been in the "country" before so he was in heaven around all the animals! Thanks Debbie for a truly wonderful weekend!
