and here''s the last one. i''m sorry about the lighting - these were done at 7pm this evening in the interests of getting something up on the site, and the light was dim. i think you can get a reasonable idea tho :)

thanks Upgradable for pointing me in this direction - i love these!

Those are lovely! What are you going to do with them? Wear them as pins? Make them into pendants?

next!
PLEASE DONT make the moonstone into a pendant!I hate seeing period pieces taken apart!Also it may be diffecult to match the chain color to a yellow gold pendant making look like a married piece.

thanks for the kind words, Chrono, Diamond*Dana and glitterata. i really like these little guys. i wear quite a lot of shawls and scarves in winter, so these will be well used in this department.

jewelerman - stay calm! i won''t be dismantling these. had i wanted a pendant, i would have bought a pendant; there''s plenty of them to be had. i like these pins for what they are - and they''re very sweet!

FrekeChild (may i just call you ''Freke'', or would that be insulting? I''m australian, and we shorten everything...) my husband does the photos in this household, and he is a very good sport! this will be put to the test over the next 6 months as i have a number of projects in the works (all rings and earrings). i will be posting often over the coming weeks and months - ALL with photos! if he looks like he''s going to lift his finger off the clicker - i''ll be saying "no! more! more! Freke has made it quite clear - MORE PHOTOS!"

:D :D :D

Good!I can rest easy....yes...more photos please....there are many great ways to wear these pins...lapels.scarves,hats, hair...I once met a lady at an estate sale that tore apart an antique Cartier ring for its stones not relizing the value was in the piece as a whole and not its stones.She then sold the ring for melt(im sure a few people are shuddering about now)I guess im a purist at heart.

i''m a purist too, jewelerman - when it''s something worth keeping pure! i love these little things - have always loved miniatures of all kinds - and these are just delightful!

thanks for your interest - i''ll make a point of posting more pictures when i can. :)

thanks skippy, catmom and canuk-gal :) i really like them!

my new sapphire and pearl ring came today too - but my husband has made off with it till i finish my current book - some months yet! kinda mean, but he''s not bending.... i thought about just killing off all the characters and writing ''the end'', but he''s not buying it.

lol
