Aloha everyone!
I can't believe how fast August is moving!  My BFF arrived at the beginning of the month, we went to Maui for a few days since she hasn't visited that island for quite a few years.  It was amazing fun!  We made sure to take that crazy winding road to Hana; of course we stopped at Ulupalakua Winery on our way and sampled a few drops of wine.  Okay, they weren't a few drops.  This is a shot of the sunset from our patio.
Wish we could have stayed longer

Not only did we go to the beach on Maui,  we continued going to the beach when we got back to O`ahu.  This time for shells, driftwood and beach glass for our crafting.  We crafted, beached and shopped, what more could we ask for!  Oh, yeah, we ate!  We ate foods that Cyn would not normally eat back in Texas or we'd eat places she remembered when she lived here.  Yum!
Well Cyn is now home, back in Texas and I'm trying to keep the crafting adrenalin flowing.  I made this pair of earrings of which I actually combined 2 pairs of earrings that I created some time ago.
I used to make a lot of ear-vines that are worn going up along the ears.  I just combined it with my simple dangle freshwater pearl earrings.
freshwater pearls, crystals & 14k GF
Photo below is a necklace I made a while back.
mother of pearl and onyx

I wore both the earrings and the necklace to my class reunion this past Saturday.
Have a great new week!
