Custom Work

I just finished a necklace for a customer who had a stone that she bought a while ago.

It was really fun making this piece. The smooth stone made me think of a smooth curvy line that cases the stone.

The stone had some height, so it really looks snug in this design.

It's getting warmer.
I can feel summer around the corner already.

Found poppies growing from the wall.  They reminded me of California.

I love the california poppies that bloom along freeways.  The orange is so California. Bright and I could feel the dry air. I think May is my favorite month in both Japan and California.
