I have a dear friend in California who is an amazing artist and jeweler. For years she has spoiled me with many gifts on my birthday, this year being no exception.
Besides all the other things she sent, I just want to showcase what she made for me.
This beautiful necklace with a bluebird pendant delicately crafted with the softest colored green stones and fresh water pearls. My photography doesn't do it justice. Please click the photos to enlarge them.
I wore everything as a set yesterday and I felt special!
I really miss my California girls! ♥
Catherine also sent me this bird dish made by her talented friend, Sandy Kreyer. Maybe some of you are already lucky enough to have some of her things in a collection.
Each piece, every flower, leaf and color is handpainted on her potter's wheel!
I have four things made by her now, three of them given to me from Catherine, The Tinker's Daughter.
I'm grateful for friends, near and far, young and old.
And I'm grateful to have so many things made and given with love.♥
