We had a very nice December, Little Bug’s grandparents visited for Christmas and then The Mister’s sister came for New Years.  As you can see, we went downtown to check out the new Maggie Daly Park.  It’s a pretty awesome space for kids, right on Chicago’s lakefront.  Parts of it are still under construction, can’t wait to go back this Spring when it’s done!

I took about three weeks off from jewelry making and am now trying to get back to work.  We’ve been having a bit of a cold spell and with my soldering station being located in our unheated garage, I have not been able to work as much as I would like.  I’m currently finishing up four pieces, a giveaway necklace, a couple of pieces with beautiful bold cabs of Owyhee jasper, and a linked bracelet with boulder Turquoise and Missouri fern fossil.  Once those are done I will start work on a Valentines inspired collection.  Hope to share some preview pics of that soon.
