Working Hard...

...or Hardly working?
Since our return from vacation I've been thinking about how little time we have to do the things we would like to or even enjoy the time we do have. We have a very nice backyard and pool but never really seem to spend any leisure time there. I've been on a quest to remedy that...I've been on the hunt for two VERY COMFY chairs. Low and behold I found them at Patios to Go right here in Minneola! So first thing this morning Jeff and I sat outside enjoying our coffee on our new corner of the patio! Thanks Teresa and Darren! (Roger and Houdini both love the otto-man!)

Jeff has worked about 14 hours a day on Friday and Saturday so that left me alone in the studio all day yesterday... I have finally made some progress!

My favorite piece from this weekend end is one I am calling Noonday Sun. I cut this piece of Gold Stone while I was at William Holland, I love how easy it was to work with and the shine is spectacular!

It is paired with a Mushroom Cloud Agate from Oregon...who names this stuff?

A beautiful Turquoise ring will find it's way to Der Shop today along with my ever-popular
Puddles earrings.

Enjoy your Sunday!

I found you via Lisa's Lovelies...your jewelry is beautiful...and I had no idea that the Holland school even existed. I had some one on one training for about a week with a stonecutter a few months ago, but since I travel full time, I bet I have forgotten half of what he taught me...thanks for that post!!!
