Tuesday News Day
Welcome to News Day Tuesday - the day for jewelry updates and snippets of life
We live in a little neighborhood that is surrounded by woods. Our neighbors are not only human, but also include deer, great blue herons, bats, newts, raccoons and bunnies. Lots of bunnies! My husband is an amazing gardener, and as such, he is not too fond of the little brown rodents with the fuzzy white tails. However, since I do not like to muck about in the dirt, I love our rabbits.
One day, last week, I took an evening stroll through our garden and noticed that we had a visitor. I dashed inside and grabbed my camera. The sun was setting rapidly and it was a bit difficult to get clear pictures in such low light, so I apologize. But be patient, please, because the pictures improve a little further down the page, once I realized that I should change the camera settings for low light conditions. In the picture below, our furry guest was checking me out and wondering if he could go on nibbling the grass or if I posed a threat.
He decided I was safe and he proceeded to roll over and over in the bark, in order to scratch his back. I had to chuckle.
…and some exploration.
All this time I had been slowly creeping closer and closer to him. In the picture below, he turns to look at me and assess the situation.
He notices a glimmer of light, turns toward the fence and spies an escape route under the fence!
“Bye-bye. I’m outta here!”
I have always loved bunnies and have made 2 bunny necklaces in the past. It was about time for bunny necklace #3! It just so happened that I had a cute little handmade ceramic bunny by Shaterra Clay Studio.
Isn’t he a cutie? I placed him on a sage-green lampwork glass headpin. I had some really cool peach aventurine triangles that look awesome with the brown bunny and sage green lampwork. I like this color combo so much that I’m looking forward to doing other projects in the same color-way.
I threaded sage green Czech glass within and between the peach adventure and finished it with an antiqued brass chain. You can keep this bunny. He won’t run away under the fence!

I am always delighted to read your comments! Hope to hear from you.
