Just call me Brown Sugar! I am back from D.R.!






I just came back from the Dominican Republic. I am as dark as brown sugar, well fed and HAPPY! Of course this morning when I was driving to work in the rain, sitting in traffic, I kinda forgot about the crystal clear blue water, gentle waves, tropical drinks and mamajuana (a dominican liquor). However, I looked in my rear view mirror, got a glimpse of my sunkissed skin and smiled....Life is good. I had the opportunity to bring my jewelry supplies and I sat on the beach making wire wrapped stone rings, a copper and amethyst necklace and funky copper earrings. I usually work with silver but being in the tropical sun inspired me to use copper which goes so well with a tan!!! I also bought a beautiful larimar stone pendant. Larimar is the most popular stone from the Dominican Republic. It is almost a Robin's egg blue, so pretty.

What beautiful jewelry! My mom loves to do wire wrapping as well -- I should take some photos are post it on my blog for you to see! I have no idea when I would do that though... maybe in a few weeks!

you're so talented Cindy. I wish I had time to start making jewelry again - I have too many hobbies...
