Soft Solder Vintage Glass Marble Necklace - Hot Off The Bench

I came across these old glass marbles (I think this type of marble is called a slag) in our wall unit.....they belong to TP and he gave me permission to repurpose some of them in my jewelry designs.  I used the Tiffany solder technique with this pendant.  I wanted so see the marble but not lose it, so I caged it in a decorative way and added a bail.  The pendant hangs from a stainless steel ball chain.  It's a long boho style necklace to wear over a long bulky sweater and it's listed at our Etsy Shop.

Sterling Silver Adjustable Feminine Flower Ring

I made this dainty flower ring using argentium sterling silver wire.  It's a twisted wire, open style adjustable ring with a feminine touch - I've included a small sterling silver flower bead.  I've listed this ring in our Etsy shop here.

August Bike Ride

Well, it certainly has been a long time since I've posted something here.  I just haven't wanted to.  I've had a strong urge to hibernate and/or withdraw since covid, Ukraine, world craziness and house renovations.  Anyway, the other day, TP and I finally got out for a bike ride this summer and it was a great ride.  I have an old HTC phone so the picture quality isn't the best, but I have a couple to post anyway.  The temperature was perfect and since it was mid week there were only a few people out on the millennium trail.  It was a peaceful ride as we passed by a newly plowed hayfield..... .....and row after row of tall corn stalks.  I don't know the name of this type of cloud, but they added to the enjoyment of the ride. The humidity has passed, the evenings are cooler, but summer is still here.  Ah, but the crickets are out and some of them are loud. “The crickets felt it was their duty to warn everybody that summertime cannot last forever.” ―E.B.
