For my daughter...


...who never drops into my blog (lol). This is a necklace and earrings
I made for her birthday next week.

She and her family currently live in Quebec, but long to come home to Nova Scotia,
so I always include something Nova Scotian in gifts for her.

The focus of the necklace is a glass sand dollar piece made by a local arts student here in Nova Scotia (I can't remember her name, sorry!) I used Mother of Pearl beads, sterling silver beads and "gold dust" beads, which are actually rust coloured with the most beautiful gold flecks. My camera's just not good enough to capture the real colours I guess. She prefers "simple" earrings,hope she likes these.

Thanks for stopping by today.
