Bit o' Honey . . .



Something about this sliver of jasper makes me want to bite into it.  It's just so buttery and soft and I'll be there are nuts down deep inside.  It's got that Bit O' Honey look to it, doesn't it?


I do like the way the pendant turned out, though, bitten or not.  I cut a little slice of the jasper and softly polished it into a long honey-golden rectangle and bezel-set it in sterling silver, of course.

On the back you can see I've pierced a simple wildflower with a long stem that curls around to the front to hold the pale citrine flower accent.

This has such subtle movement and I'm slowly adding to my prairie-inspired collection.  I think I'll wait to show it all at once as a gallery collection but you get to see them as they come from the bench.

Lucky you.

Indeed! I can't wait to see all of these together. Will you do a blog post showing them all together?

I should, don't you think?

The pendant is amazing and it does look good enough to eat.
