During the time span of age ten through fifteen I was really into friendship bracelets. I had a collection of DMC embroidery floss that would rival any big box craft store. While in high school and college my preferred jewelry medium was hemp. I remember sitting in my room between classes twisting up a few heady pieces while listening to the sweet sounds of the 60’s and 70’s. Now my focus has shifted to gemstones and wire.
I really enjoyed creating this jewelry for the intended recipients, despite having to dismantle a few pieces, several times. There is one change I’d still like to make to the amethyst necklace but seeing as how my sister-in-law loved it, I’ll just let it go.
