New Jewelry!

But first... the pictures I promised from our drive to see Edward Sharpe last Wednesday evening. I promise you, it was absolutely this breathtaking:

I bet you didn't even know Kansas was beautiful, did you?!

Okay, and now the jewelry! I found a fantastic deal on some small(ish) rectangular stones a couple of weeks ago so I've decided to use them to make some smaller, simpler pieces to add a few more affordable items in my shop--for those of you who are dying to own a piece of Buffalo Lucy jewelry but are unable to justify shelling out the big bucks ;)

These two rings are the first of these pieces. There will be some necklaces coming soon also:

Yellow Korean jade and sterling silver in size 5.5 and a gorgeous blue green (but mostly blue!) amazonite with beautiful depth, also simply set in sterling silver, size 7.75. The jade will be appearing in the shop momentarily and the amazonite either later this evening or tomorrow (I need to take a few more pictures).

It's almost Friday!!

It was a dark and stormy morning...

I love Kansas storms. Well, I love them when they don't cause any damage to anything of too much importance. But they are so beautiful. I have some photos I want to post of the gorgeous view on our way to the concert I mentioned in my last post, but they're on my other camera. The sky was dark but the sun was shining through the clouds from behind us and illuminating the impossibly green grass along the side of the road. The colors were unbelievable. And then, the rainbow. I've never seen such a rainbow. I don't think I was able to get any good shots of it from the car, but I'll see what's there when I finally get around to uploading them.  I can't imagine any picture could do it justice.

This one I shot this with my iPhone on Saturday morning in downtown Lawrence:

Thankfully we made it inside just before the skies opened up (about 30 seconds after this shot was taken).

The concert last week was fantastic. It was a much-needed respite from the duties of  life-as-a-grown-up: lost myself in rapturous music (heightened by the energy of the sea of ecstatic fans),  held hands with my wife without consideration of what others might think, stayed out until an ungodly hour... it was just what I (and, I think, we) needed.

More of that, please.

Oh, and I promise to have new jewelry to share by the end of this week.  I've been waiting on some supplies. I'm lucky you're all more patient than I am.
