Getting Ready for a Jewellery Sale

We're having a jewellery sale at our family cottage this coming Sunday. Hopefully the weather forecast will cooperate, although at the moment, it's a little iffy. Sounds like another weekend of cool and rainy weather, gee, what a surprise. :(

The sale will feature designs by yours truly as well as a sample sale of John Hardy jewellery. John's sister Ellen Woodward will be there selling pieces designed by John Hardy, an artist who works with silver and lives in Bali (tough life, eh?). I believe the man himself is mostly retired these days but his jewellery is still hard at work. You can check out her website here:

I own several JH pieces. My parents bought me the first few items as gifts and I've collected a few of my own since then. I wear my rings every day. I especially love my bamboo ring and it's inscription that says "This ring planted 3 bamboos on Nusa Penida". The idea that you can wear a beautiful piece of jewellery and improve the planet at the same time appeals to me. Mostly, I enjoy the simple design of this ring and the way it feels on my hand.

I've been making some new pieces this week, one of which is this necklace which I call "Tequila Sunrise" (for no particular reason, other than the orange beads remind me of the colour of the drink):

If you are interested in attending, email me for the directions - you would be most welcome!

Hello Friend!
I hope you are well. I miss you so much. We are coming to your neck of the woods Aug. 9th! I'll call you this week to see if we can hook up (well, not "hook up" the teenager way..).
Love you!

Looking forward to seeing you! If you could bring along some sunshine and warm weather too, that would be even better!!
