Lapis Earrings and the Spanish Wedding Necklace

Don't you LOVE lapis??? The lovely deep deep blue~~Yum. Here's a pair of copper and silver earrings I made featuring some lapis drops that I got recently. These are so fun to wear! They are heading to Studio 41and I hope someone wants to take them home.

My DH and I are heading to Spain on April 29 to see his lovely daughter. And we are invited to her boyfriend's brother's wedding that first weekend. According to DD, weddings in Spain are big affairs. The wedding will be at 6:00 PM, and after that there will be a six-course meal with lots of drinking and dancing until the wee morning hours. Since my DH and I usually poop out at 9:00 PM, we'll see how that goes! Of course it is 9 hours ahead of California time in Alcala. So we may be the coolest partyers around! Then again, neither of us drinks, and my DH doesn't dance. So maybe we won't be so cool!

Anyway, I have a lovely new top to wear with my chocolate brown long skirt. And here's my new necklace of apatite and copper and silver. I love it~! One of the funnest things about making jewelry is that you always can make something to wear for any special occasion.

May you all have a blessed week. Thank you for stopping by~

Chris, it was such a pleasant surprise to see you at my blog today! :-) Your presence (even if its only online) always brings feelings of happiness and calm. Funny that this should be your online name too, isn't it? You embody these two qualities and bring them with you wherever you go.
