My back gave out 10 days before we were due to leave. Rediscovered pounds and the stress of sitting at my work table for hours-on-end doing physically demanding work caused my low back to punk out on me. I needed to park myself on a heating pad on the sofa instead of my work chair. Faced with hours of mindless sitting, I decided to get back to my roots, so to speak. I began this fabulous collar with a Prudent Man Agate cabachon at the center.
Soon it became clear that I was seriously in love with this necklace. Halfway to the end, I decided to keep it for myself and let it get wild. This piece is now in my private collection and gets taken out to dinner as often as I can talk Marble Man into going.
To make up for keeping a big piece, I made this lovely beaded cuff, which you can find for sale in my Etsy shop.
~~~The good news is that my back is doing MUCH better. Weeks of rest, some better-living-through-chemistry in the form of muscle relaxers, and losing some weight has done wonders. Yes, the weight loss battle is back on... I decided to track it on my foodie blog. If you are interested, you can click the photo at the top of my right sidebar. Otherwise, I thought it best to keep it off this blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
