Distracted by pretty rocks.....

Not a knitting post today....(although I made some great progress on my current project last night). No today is about jewelry.....There is a Gem and Mineral show here in lovely Barstow and people from all over S CA come to this peddling their pretty rocks....including ones for jewelry....Couldn't resist so this is what I got...... 'crazy agate' with man made beads and coral with turquoise and this would become....

The agate one I am quite pleased with, Looks quite nice on. The coral with Turquoise is quite nice and I have some chunky coral red bracelets. Like the chunky bracelets. So in the span of an evening I created my self two necklaces, pair of earrings, and chunky bracelets

Now there was a knitting related project that I did today as well but can't post about them just yet (x-mas present too)
