Making : Jewelry

Over Mother’s day, we were at the beach.  We wanted to show the Pacific Coast, here in Oregon, to our friends Mac and Ros.  We spend few days there, and we had great weather.  From warm sunshine, to a colder breeze and even a little rain.  A perfect sample of what the coast is like over in this part of the world.

We had so much fun.  One of the things we did, and showed them, was how to find agates. We went to our two sure spots, and found quite a few!  It is always so much fun.

Now, with our treasure back at home, we set ourselves to make earrings. Neither one of us had done any before, but we thought it would be fun.

We first picked those two that were most similar.

And then did the best we could in tying the agates with thin wire we found at Joann’s.  Then hooked the left over wire to the earring piece, and they were done!

And Siena made some with shells too.
