The theme for this weeks Year of Jewelry was Stone Age. I doubt anyone wore jewelry during the stone age-they were probably too busy trying to survive-but this bracelet does have a stone and I aged it. It's a big giant chunk of citrine and the smaller stones are pale faceted smoky quartz. See all the gorgeous work here
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
