January's birthstone is the Garnet. I had some beautiful garnets on hand that I blogged about last week. For some time now, I have had a sketch for a pendant using them. I finally got to work on the pendant. I finished it this past Sat. and put it in the Jewelry Artists of Charlotte store. Of course I was rushing out the door to take it to the store and forgot to take pictures of it. I finally got out of the house yesterday and shot some photos at the store. They are not the best but you can get an idea of how it looks.
January has been snowy so far. For some reason my dog Gigi loves to eat snow. She begged to go out on the deck just to eat the snow. I made her wear her sweater which she does not like. When she came back in her legs were caked with snow. What a mess!
