Organic Drusy Trinket

I picked up a few small, vibrantly coated quartz drusy cabochons at the Gem and Lapidary Workers Show a couple weekends ago.  Between humming "Deck the Halls" while I work on my solstice piece, and a frantic fall for my day job, Made for Movement, I played with one of them for a couple evenings evening last week.  Finally tonight, I got it listed in my etsy shop.
 I am apparently a sucker for metallic irridescence, since all the necessary beads for the piece were already in my stash. It's not an exactly calibrated shape, so I worked organically with the bezel, shaping it without precise geometric symmetry. A simple trinket, but sparkly and fun!

  1. Isn't it nice to have everything at the ready? I find the same thing happens in my own studio - I consistently gravitate to blues and greens and have A LOT of that on hand.

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog today!
