Procrastination and a little jewelry

So far, 2013 has been busy to say the least.  I was able to squeeze in a little jewelry design in between work, school and life.

My good friend is getting married and I wanted to get her a personal gift for her bridal shower.  I was not familiar with Mexican traditions, and was disappointed to find out that her bridal registry was also her wedding registry.  I bought her a great gift from her registry, but that wasn't enough.  She is super fashionable, loves clothes and accessories.  She loves color...all of it.

I have amazing circular multi-color agate pieces and tried my best to make a unique necklace with them. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful.  I woke up the morning of her shower with an idea of what to make. I didn't have all the materials, plus I had to get ready for her amazing themed bridal shower.  Needless to say, I was a stress case. I did finish the necklace on time and she loves it.

Now, to add to my crazy life, I have been testing apps for work to see what is out there and which ones we should be using.  I decided to finally join Pinterest and...all my free time is now gone.  Haha oh well.  I found a photo app I decided to test out on this post.  Let me know what you think of the photo border.  There were plenty of options, but I still wanted the necklace to be the focus.  The necklace is made of chalcedony, copper and a vintage copper Chanel chain.

Which photo catches your eye the most?
