Yummy enough to eat!

I just wanted to take a moment and talk about some very yummy creations that look so unbelievably real! Look closely at this Lemon Cake. They're not really edible, but man, I'd love to get my hands on these beauties!
LisaJHoney's shop on Etsy is a veritable delight. This box of truffles is my favorite!

Purple Toggle Charm necklace has been featured...

... here! It's always nice to be appreciated by a fellow jewelry artist :) Ruthie has some lovely fall creations! Please visit her shop for more designs.

My purple toggle charm necklace was one of the first pieces I made and it sold out. This one is similar to that first piece, with purple glass beads of different shapes, Swarovski crystals, lampworked foil and sterling silver laser cut beads. These charms are hung on a silver toggle. I've created a necklace with a loop so that you can interchange these charms (see my other listings for more colors).

Thunder Egg Jasper necklace by Vitrine

I fell in love with jasper a long time ago, mainly because it comes in a beautiful variety of colors. This one comes from Australia and is charmingly referred to as Thunder egg. The outer shell is made of rhyolite, a type of volcanic rock made of quartz and feldspar. The inside of thunder eggs is formed when water carrying silica seeps in, leaving mineral deposits. The rocks become filled with agate, chalcedony, jasper, amethyst, opal, quartz crystal, or a combination of these.
I'm thrilled that I could use this gorgeously cut stone in a necklace! It comes with a brown ribbon, and can be worn either side. Each side is different- one side is blue/brown/mauve. The other side is orange/green/brown. The pendant measures about 2 inches (about 5cm).
