Radio Silence

Sorry about the radio silence over here.  For those of you that follow Patty's Pretty Things on Facebook, you saw that we had a bit of a family issue a couple of weeks ago.  You see, my six-year-old son took a bad fall and landed on his face.  I actually closed up shop for a couple of weeks so I could wrap my brain around everything that had happened, and come up with a plan to deal with all of his injuries.  But he's doing well, and recovering nicely, with very few lingering effects.  The only ongoing issue will be a number of orthodontic/dental procedures because of his permanent tooth extraction.

I have been doing some shop stuff...  I have a few pairs of earrings, and an adjustable bracelet.  I got some emerald jade that I'm enjoying, as well as some other bright summer colors, and I used some for a pair of earrings.

I really love those mosaic agate beads with the jade - they have flecks of gold and shimmer in them, and are simply gorgeous.

The bracelet is made with large fancy jasper rounds, and Czech glass, strung on white cotton cording.  I really love it, and it's so easy to wear!!

I have some plans for some really dainty wrap bracelets.  I have the beads all picked out, and the cord cut - I just need to put them together!!
