Break for Tea from Jewelry Making

I added photos of the jewelry I just made because some of you left a comment asking to see them, so here they are. The first one is a necklace with round and button shaped aquamarine.

I did not make the pearl with lemon quartz stones necklace but bought it from Ross Simmons Jewel Store about a month ago. I wanted a pair of earrings and a bracelet to match it. I could not find any lemon quartz with a teardrop shape so I just bought the naturally cut ones from the jewelry convention last Saturday, and then I made the bracelet and earrings today.

It was last Saturday when we had a jewelry convention in town where lots of vendors sell jewelry supplies. We like to go to this since it is only held annually, to replenish our supplies.

Buying more natural stones, fittings and other supplies got me and my friend, Debjani excited about making more jewelry. So we scheduled a session today.

After creating a few jewelry, we took a break to have some tea and cinnamon rolls.
We had green tea in my Tirschenreuth tea pot. I chose to use this because it has Fall colors. I pulled out 2 flowered bone china tea cups and saucers with similar colors.

I served the cinnamon rolls in a Traci Porter "Artesian"cake pedestal plate. I used small Prima Donna by Jennifer Brinley plates for our rolls. Both serving and dessert plates have peacocks on them.

Aynsley bone china tea cup and saucer.

I don't really know the pattern.

Staffordshire bone china teacup and saucer. They have pansies which is perfect for this time of the year.

But I don't know the pattern name either.

Here's a close up of the Bavarian Tirschenreuth teapot.

Since all our jewelry supplies were all spread on the office desk, we had tea in the family room. I wanted to have the tea outside but Debjani said it was 93 degrees so we decided to stay indoors.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tulo laway na naman po ako? I love the cakestand & the dessert plates. They are one of a kind in my eyes. I never see such in Sweden.

Those jewelries are to die for, too? Wow... seems your busy as bee overthere.

Wish I could visit you one day and sit with you when Debjani make her jewelries. One of my dream is a jewelry making.

Ano ba yan? Daydreaming naman po? Bare with me, Ate.

Have a great Tuesday and enjoy the upcoming week.

Hugs to all,

Love the necklaces. Looks like you had a lovely tea while crafting.That is a great cakeplate!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Christine! I love your jewelry designs! The stones are so pretty. I also like your tea service. I love how you mix patterns! I have always adored Tracy Porter's designs. I was so sad about her company's financial problems.

What a fun day you and your buddy had! The cinnamon rolls look divine, too!

Hello Christine,
Your jewelry pieces are stunning! You are a multi talented woman!
Your tea break also looks gorgeous. What a beautiful tea setting, the tea pot, the dishes, the lovely tea cups and delicious food! How fun!

Christine, your jewelry is stunning, you are so talented. I love the teascape also. The cakestand and plates are so pretty and your teacups and pot are beautiful. You definitely do fix the most beautiful tablescapes. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Christine, not only is that a pretty tablescape for tea, but that necklace you made is the most stunning thing ever! I can't believe you made it! I'm so impressed. You are SO talented.

On a different note, I forgot to answer a question you had the other day. You asked me about my little stuffed animal. It is a crab made out of leather, and I got him years ago as a gift. He's dressed in a Victorian waistcoat. I just love him. He's kind of fun to have in Florida.

Sending you hugs. We have rain today, but it's gentle so far.



Marie said...

Absolutely gorgeous made those Christine? Wow! You're a jewelry artist. And how gorgeous is that table set up for tea!!!

Happy Tea Tuesday!

The jewelry you made is lovely and what an inviting tea setting. The Tirschenreuth teapot is beautiful and I love the pretty peacock china.

I really like your Halloween tablescape in the next post too.

Hi again hon...I just came back to pick my necklease! lol I love your necklease with the pearl and the cut stone one, just gorgeous. You're a lady of many talents my dear. Yep, your tea pot looks so much like mine, I guess it's the Bavarian style. I did visit before, but you got me doubting it too. Hugs and love,
