Here are the pieces I made for my Mom & Grandma. My Grandma gets the Sea Glass. It was my first attempt at setting something that wasn't polished & buffed for the purpose of being enveloped in silver. It was easier than I thought, but it is a small piece. The Ocean Jasper (my new favorite) is for my Mom. They have been such a support system for me in so many aspects of my life that this is just an infinitesimal token of the appreciation & love I feel for them. I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have been given to these people as my family.
This is a little sneak peak of the filming going on in Durham. The movie "Main St" is being filmed a few blocks from my house & I snapped this while I was walking to my local watering hole. I haven't been able to get a pic of Orlando Bloom, but he's in the warehouse, I promise. It was getting ready to storm, so I wasn't going to wait (stalk) for him to run out..(that could have taken hours, or even days). It's amazing how long it takes to shoot a movie. I also don't have a pic of Colin Firth, Ellen Bernstyn or Patricia Clarkson, I do have a few of the crew, as they've adopted my little tavern & seafood restaurant as their "winding down" place. I'll thought I'd be able to get a couple more pics because they were supposed to film right in front of my favorite tavern, but the weather was not conducive to successful filming.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!!
