Summer's bounty

Some of the delicious produce I have growing lovingly in my backyard veggie patch at the moment include these capsicum, burpless cucumbers and dragon's breath beans.

The tomatoes have been very consistent and bountiful this summer (yum!) with almost daily pickings.Spinach is growing strong as is the parsley.

Stunning,subtle,and oh so mysterious.....

One of my newly found and amazing gemstones is labradorite. I love searching for and finding incredibly satisfying gems with which to create memorable jewellery items to wear and treasure.
This is the second labradorite gem I have discovered,bought,set and created into this special necklace. I have also added two of my fine silver stars to add a little something unique.
The beauty of labradorite can be seen by the unexpected flashes of light and colour, like the gorgeous hint of blue in this pendant.

I will soon be listing this gem in my Etsy shop.Stay tuned.....
