When you dream, dream big. As deep as the ocean, as wide as the sky, as far as the sea and as free as the wind.

Who loves jewelry?
OK. I have the most awesome friend who makes the most beautiful jewelry. We met in the foster care classes and have become like sisters. She just moved to this area a little while ago and it is so fun to have another close friend.
She came over today to work on jewelry while we visit and we ended up cleaning ALL my jewelry and fixing things that were broken. We re-strung a strand of pearls that were my grandmothers that I have never been able to wear for fear that the thread would break.
I have bought the most GORGEOUS stuff. Yesterday I bought a pair of smoky quartz earings and a pair of mossy agate or something or other. Beautiful. I have a pair of blue quartz earings and necklace and well.... lots of stuff. She only uses real stones and jems and mostly sterling silver but does gold too. The silver seems to be more popular now a days. Anyway, She is at the Farmer's market in Salt Lake at Pioneer park every Saturday. Take your wallets because her stuff is so great! I had a hard time getting my stupid camera to focus but I hope you get the idea. These pieces are beautiful up close. The pictures do not do them justice. they are called "D'hulst Origionals"
I admit I am a jewelry junky. Like Yolanda and shoes, it's me and bling bling! I love all kinds and having a friend who readily has it is killing me! I even just bought a new jewelry box that is tarnish resistant. I am a sucker! They say one is born every day! But what does a girl do? Pretty things make me happy! My in-laws have never understood it. None of them wear jewelry very often. I told my hubby I wanted some kind of diamond anything for our 10th anniversary because the diamond is for 10 years. Anyway, my in-laws thought I was being selfish and greedy. I don't discuss my addiction with them anymore!
