Beautiful Basha bead. I’ll post instructions on at Shiny Little Things by the end of the week.

This carved pendant is made of dark brown jade.

The double fish symbol is considered good luck in China.

I made this pendant when I was pregnant with my daughter and wore it all the time.  What could have been luckier?

.5 mm black leather cord, vintage red glass beads, jade pendant. Closed in the back with a hook-and-loop closure.

A lariat; #8 silk knotted occasionally between vintage glass, seed pearls, very old Bali. Finished with a hollow-blown stripey bead on one end and a hunk of smokey quartz on the other.

That’s my friend, Beth, in the background. She didn’t believe I was going to use a mirror to take a picture of myself.

Three strands of very small iris-colored pearls with a chunk of labradorite and a chunk of kyanite.

Gold-filled toggle clasp.

This necklace always tangles and rolls up, no matter what I do.

I used to wear this a lot, but I probably haven’t worn it in five years.

A busy day with only a meeting in the morning followed by an afternoon of cooking for 19 guests…what to wear? Ahh, my Susan Lenart Kazmer dice-and-lightbulb charm necklace with sterling rolo chain and Kazmerian balled wire bail. Of course.

I love this necklace.

See, my last name is pronounced ‘dice’ even though it’s not spelled that way. Plus I love polka dots. Plus I like black and white.
