Treasures from the Backyard


Moving to a new home + upcoming midterms = very hectic life.  Unpacking thirty gallon boxes and slaving over the digestion/absorption of dietary triacylglycerol isn't exactly my idea of a therapeutic weekend, so to reward myself for all the 'hard work' I decided to spoil myself with random thrift store purchases and the creation of a new jewelry masterpiece.

Giant agate slice (discovered under a pile of dirt in the backyard) wrapped with 24 gauge gold wire and bright multi-colored seed beads. Vintage books: products of recent thifting.


A belated twenty-fifty birthday present to my dear friend Andrew: 
Die a happy man. You made the blog. Love you?

  1. I am bit slow, did you make that necklace, or buy it? If you made it, good job! I wish I could make my own diy goodies.

    Goodluck on the midterms!
