It has been too long since I last posted. I am approaching my 71st birthday and continuing to slow down my  art fair attendance. Since my lung collapse I no longer have the stamina to do a full summer season. The energy is just not there anymore. In the last two years I don't think I have made more than 6 new jewelry pieces and only a few winter weight ruana and shrugs. Below is a necklace set with a slice of an iron pyrite geode as its focal element. The necklace is strung with 4mm bicone and spiral faceted metallic coated beads and accented with larger faceted crystals in a non- symmetrical pattern with a lobster claw clasp. The necklace is 24 inches long and the pendant is an additional 3.5 inches, with complementing 3.5 inch long earrings on surgical stainless steel french wires
