when is enough enough ...

Could this be referred to as an obsession?

A twelve step problem?

Or a healthy hobby?

Do you think I have enough?

Should I lock away my credit card?

But just look at all the beauties. Quietly waiting for their chance to shine. Sitting neatly in their holding cells. I can't wait to get at them but perhaps I should hold off buying any more until I have used the ones I have? 

So all of you lapidaries out there, you masters of stone cutting, you revealers of beauty ... stop it! 

saturday notes:
happy diamond jubliee your majesty.

that's her, waving at me.

right back at yer ...

i bet she doesn't have a gemstone addiction - oh, wait, maybe she does.

and talking of crown jewels, take a look at these beauties ...

now that's a pair of earrings.

new pieces

I have some new items listed on my etsy page.

I tried a new background because I thought perhaps the red was a little too dark and dismal, but, now I don't know. 

friday notes:
i've been painting. sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not. having a fight with myself right now. housework or studio? so, so far i've done neither ... makes sense, right?
