Pebbles On A Chain

and my new year has started very well. The other day I received an absolutely wonderful gift for my jewelry making, from a Swedish friend Mia Christensen. She picked all the stones and pebbles herself. Drilled them and tumbled them. They all come locally from an area in Ostergotland Sweden, nearby where she lives and where I also grew up. Many of them are small and perfect for earrings. I just had to start creating with them immediately. The ones I used in these earrings are just over 1 cm, or just under 1/2 inch.

In this picture below you can see about half of the stones I got as a present from Mia. She is in the process of setting up an Etsy-shop, but until it's done you may contact her via e-mail:[at]

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year,
