Silver & a Little Jasper

New in my shop.
I've sold several of these around town & one went to Afghanistan (as a lucky token) with a friend of mine. I haven't heard from him, but hopefully he'll come strolling back soon.
A Fine Distraction included me in her treasury. My first treasury ever!!! Well, I go to Etsy this morning & I have a convo from her congratulating me on my first sale. My first sale!!! The little mended heart is going to a new home in Vegas, baby!!!

This is my newest "baby" that went to her new home Friday. This one was hard to let go, but I can't keep them all. The photo isn't great, but I snapped it quickly because I had to get it boxed up. The stone guy told me it was a lahontonite jasper, but I bought it because it looks like the sea oats on the beach at my beloved OBX. I've never seen a stone like this, probably never will, but we had our time. *sigh* I miss her so.

Pam PAM!!! Congratulations!!! I think it's very moving your friend in Afghanistan has one. I can see how this pretty and bittersweet design would sell a lot on Etsy! It's just so pretty, and simple yet says a lot! (the heart) it's really really moving!
I like the stone necklace too, now you have me thinknig of OBX! I miss OBX!

Aaaww. Thanks everyone!!
There was a time of freaking out because I wasn't prepared for a sale at all, but Care walked me through it. Everything is packed up & ready for the mail carrier to take it on it's way to it's new home. I've got another heart that's waiting to go into the LOS then for a tumble to go into my shop later.
