One of my most favorite things to do is "hop" around in blogland. It's so much fun to travel around the world and see so many wonderful things, people, and places, all from the comfort of my home. Not to mention not having to deal with the airlines! Yikes!
A while back I stumbled across Joanne May. I was intrigued not only by her magical illustrations, but also by the beautiful jewelry she creates. Especially the jewelry featuring the Leaping Hare. Well... you can also throw in the fact we have the same last name! hee,hee,hee.
I decided I wanted to give myself an early birthday present (my birthday is in March). Since I love handmade things most of all and since I have been drooling over her work for so long, I decided I would purchase a necklace with the Leaping Hare. Joanne was so gracious to create a piece specifically for me. I wanted something small with white and silver. I think she hit the nail on the head. It's so perfect!
Please excuse this sideway photo. Blogger is having an issue and won't behave properly!! Naughty!! Uggggg!
Blogger doesn't like this photo either, but at least you get the to see how beautiful this necklace is. I'm so excited about it! The beads are just gorgeous!
Joanne also sent me this beautiful bunny brooch. I'm in the process of creating a quilted "art purse" and I do believe this will work perfectly on my new purse.
Thanks a million times over Jo for making me something I will treasure forever!
I hope all of you hop over and visit with her. Tell her Shell sent ya.
