Well, I made definite progress on the sapphire necklace on Tuesday. I must admit, I’ve been procrastinating a bit while trying to visualize how I want it. As I’ve said before, it’s one of those trial and error designs that will be added to the sketchbook with details after it’s complete! I’m really pleased with my progress and I think I’m finally ready for the last step…adding the little multi-colored sapphire briolettes. Looking at it, I can’t believe this is just shy of ten feet of chain!
Accomplishing anything on Tuesday was nearly impossible for me. I was completely distracted by huge, fluffy, white snowflakes falling from the sky. While so many of you are sick of the snow, it’s a complete novelty here in Austin, Texas. My husband said that people in the office went outside like kids, just to stand in it. The flakes were huge…over 2″ at times. I took my camera with me when I walked across the street to our mailbox. Here’s a shot of my little winter wonderland. Our snow-topped houses nestled in the side of a hill. It was 75 degrees and sunny on Sunday, yet this was the scene on Tuesday!
