Dragon's Blood and other things

Dark Rays of Time
My favorite type of jasper is Dragons Blood Stone. I love the colors and maze like pattern. The first time I saw these beads I fall in love(I often fall in love with new beads, lol) I just had to buy them and now I have made them into these simple but lovely earrings. I will be buying more Dragon's blood Jasper , oh yes I will be!

I have been in a mood for simplicity lately and with my passion for steampunk still in place I made this necklace the other day using a watch piece, black filigree and black chain. It reminds me of a mechanical sun, the way the filigree points out around it. I am very happy with the way these two simple pieces came out.

I would like to introduce a favorite shop of mine Dorkorama Jewelry. Beautiful and skillfully wire wrapped jewelry ( a so have wrap envy). There is not a piece in his shop I do not like. He always has beautiful picked out gemstones and I love the oxidized sterling silver he uses in many of his creations.
