Spring!

I used to say I couldn’t live anywhere where the seasons never changed. Well, I’ve changed my mindset because I’m sure I could live anywhere because this world is a beautiful place to be no matter where you live. I am a firm believer in finding the beauty and joys that fill your life with happiness and love wherever you may land.

But, with that said, I do so love how the seasons change here in the Midwest USA. I’ve gone from living in a mid sized city to living a rural lifestyle here on our farm. And, as much as I enjoyed my urban lifestyle I must say that I am in awe of the nature that surrounds me here in the country and the changes that evolve in what sometimes seems like the blink of an eye.

We welcomed spring here on Saturday with temperatures starting to warm up but still a bit chilly so I grabbed my jacket and took the dogs for a little stroll and thought I’d share a few photos of our little farm.

Peace Love and Joy,

Judy

Artisan Handmade Jewelry – Limited Edition Necklaces

Dalmatian Jasper with Pink Rhodonite Natural Gemstone Stone Necklaces by JudysTreehouse

I have an obsession confession. Sometimes (okay, often) when I’m perusing for unique stones or beads to work into my jewelry creations I come across some pieces that almost make me hyperventilate with that “gotta have this” feeling. Although my habit (okay, my reasoning way of thinking would/should be) is to wait a day or two before purchasing to “make sure” this is truly an “object of my affection” and not a “passing phase” that will fade by the next day, sometimes I just can’t wait. I get nervous thinking that I might miss my window of opportunity if I don’t buy it RIGHT NOW! I’ve even found myself unable to sleep during my self-induced “waiting period” and have jumped out of bed in the middle of the night, vetoing my inner voice that says “wait” and moving forward with a “buy it now” mentality. This results in a momentary sense of peace and the ability to then garner an hour or two of much needed sleep until I start thinking about matching beads.

This is the case with these ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS dalmatian jasper teardrop pendants. First I purchased one, then I purchased a few more. I think I purchased six (maybe a couple more than that) in total, and I REALLY WANT MORE! But, I restrain myself so that I will make just a few limited edition pieces which will make them all the more precious for those discerning few fashion fanatics who strive for individuality.

These short statement necklaces feature natural semi-precious gemstones and stones with each dalmatian jasper pendant supported by a strand of a contrasting yet complementary gemstone beads. Although similar, each necklace is unique in color combination not to mention the eclectic designs created by the natural occurring striations, bands, inclusions, and veins found in each individual stone.

These are the few necklaces I’ve created with these cool dalmatian jasper pendants and anticipate I’ll finish up the last few within the next couple of months.

In the meantime, did I mention these awesome amazonite and tiger eye pendants I recently stumbled across………
